Earlier this year
Bullets v Phoenix Jan 23
Once upon a time, there was a handsome prince called Mitchell. He was from the southern lands, across the creek. Prince Mitchell and his band of merry men included Big John, Prince Adam, The Dark Prince Ben, Kyle the Dude, and Tai the Kangaroo.
They had fought hard in their first year of the jousting contest and now need to win their next 6 jousts to finish off a fairy tale season. But it's hard when the jousting team only has one move and after a few weeks of the jousting season, the other jousting teams worked out their offence. Nevertheless, these brave men venture into the bowels of mother earth to joust with the gold and blue team. The green team are looking for frogs to kiss, but in the lands where the Bullets are from, there are only cane toads. and finding fair maidens is pretty hard too.
Brisbane go into this game as hot favourites and for very good reason. The Phoenix are keen, keen as mustard, but I think you'll find the one offensive play they have has been worked out well and truely. You have to feel a little sorry for Benny, who hauls hit butt up and down the court, sets himself in the wing waiting for the pass, and it doesn't come. Brisbane have been a bit inconsistent this season, but hey, show me a team who wins games they should. Anyone can win on any particular day.
Bullets have won 3 in a row and 4 out of 5, on the flip side, it's 1 from 5 for the Phoenix, who travel as poorly as a Kardashian in economy class sitting next to an obese accountant with bad breath still living at home.
This is the crunch part of the season and the Bullets are bringing out the nut crackers tonight. Lord Lamar v Prince Mitchell will be a highlight, but there's no fairy tale for SEM this season.
