Shekou Pythons Tame Shenzhen Dragons
On a very warm Sunday afternoon the aging Shekou Pythons tamed the athletic Shenzhen Dragons. In a hard fought encounter, the lead changed time and time again as the game wore on. The Dragons definitely missed their long haired inspirational leader Captain Darragh “Lead by Example” Hudson. His trusty henchmen Greg and Simon could not combine with the Dragons weapons of mass destruction Josh, Jonny and Dan to clinch the game for the Dragons. The Dragons tried man handling the Pythons with Greg and Simon roughing up the aging Pythons at every opportunity.
The Pythons dominated the game from start to finish with their confidence in their ability showing by playing two ladies and a fourteen year old young man. The Pythons pate munching leader Olivier (yes of course he’s French they’re all called Olivier) stated, “They have good pate at a great price at Park n Shop and we will thrash the Dragons”. Three Pythons were seen partaking in a liquid lunch before the game over at Rose Garden, they justified their actions in the knowledge they were only playing the Dragons and being half cut would just give the Dragons a badly needed chance. The Dragons sought to exploit the perceived Pythons weakness by playing their best players against the Pythons ladies. The Pythons ran in try after try with Yves, Marcus, Herve and Brian giving the young guns of the Dragons a demonstration of true pace. Before the game started there was much talk about the Dragons and who is, “The Fastest Dragon Alive”, after Sundays raw pace demonstration by the Pythons, the Dragons must be wondering why they can’t out run men older than their fathers.
The Dragons did utilize their cunning on several occasions and crossed the line enough times to walk away with a draw but it was obvious to all that the Pythons are actually fitter than the Dragons. The Pythons relentless style of play left the Dragons flat footed. Dan “The Man” Beach started off atrociously allowing an aging Python who is actually older than his father, to beat him for pace and score a deserved try. Beach came back strongly with three tries after receiving wicked passes from Josh “Sideways” Phillips. Beach being the glory-munger that he is, reinforced his credentials as a leader in waiting. Jonny “Can’t Dummy to Save Himself” Harper ran in a sorely needed try just avoiding the Kaufman.
Try of the day goes to the Englishman who single handedly keeps McCawleys in profitability, the young gun Jason dissected the Pythons defences and ran in a try that got the Dragons back to a level score.
