Oh Dear! Despite a brilliant team effort a couple of weeks ago, Lily’s License to Kill is well and truly revoked!
The threat of being fed to the sharks did not scare them enough to raise their game. Perhaps something worse- like going for a swim in Lurgan lake in a gold bikini – Ursula Andress style – might have really put the fear of God in them! Anyway, their only hope at this stage is a small part in Johhny English’s MI 7 – after all, the word “mistake” is not one that appears in his dictionary!Oly’s Octopussies who promised to take on the world and win, have fared slightly better. Rosalind Millar has been like a human canon, and has played consistently well all season. Golf has been a sweet distraction for an hour or two for Rosalind as she prepares her floristry masterpieces for the Christmas season. Bronagh Mc Kavanagh, who was missing, presumed teaching, for the first couple of weeks, obviously found the priest hole to the golf club and has returned with a vengeance- Sheena could have done with her weeks ago-before her team went into a skyfall.
Grizel’s Goldfingers must think that there is a free Aston Martin for everyone in the audience. After starting like a Robin Reliant, they have accelerated up the table and have been first past the flag for the last three weeks. Several of the team have scored 20 points, while Christine Maguire has been like Pussy Galore herself and been top scorer most weeks.
Perhaps always having a martini at Five, was not a good idea for Tara’s Thunderballs. After a thunderous start for the whole team, only Tara and Ursula Dummigan have played like a couple of NATO bombs- perhaps they should have stolen some more! Margaret’s Moonrakers may need to ask Drax Industries to hijack another space shuttle to further their cause. However, there are quite a few quiet Bond girls on that team- and they may just might escape from the Jaws of defeat!
So only a couple of weeks to go with really all to play for. Despite Grizel’s goldfingered lead, the weather may make them very cold fingered and scare the living daylights out of them! So this is the end my friend-hold your breath and count to 10. Hold on tight and let the fight begin!
