Sporty Twin Gods of Adventure and Ball Game TriumphXIBALBA team to a match.
From the kick-off it was a tough one. The twins ignored the ball and kicked the life out of the monstrous VUCUB-CAQUIX and his two giant sons CABRAKAN and ZIPACNA. But CAMA-ZOTZ the Bat God was passed a knife and managed a magnificent header by lopping HUNAHPU's head off.
The game seemed to be a draw, so the brothers asked for extra time. HUNAHPU borrowed a turtle's head, whilst his own head took an early bath and was hung above the court to dry.
Nevertheless the head still managed to participate in the heading, which really threw the Underworld side. They were totally disorientated in the last minute when XBALANQUE caught the head and kicked the turtle top knot into touch. Victory to the HERO-TWINS!
XBALANQUE replaced HUNAHPU's head so you couldn't see the join. "How do you do that?" asked the defeated team. "That's us," grinned the twins, "we always stick together. Chop anything off and we just stick it back".
The losers pleaded for a demonstration. So the brothers chopped them into pieces. But they decided against the joining together bit and left the Underworld to face the sports press.
Further exciting adventures followed, starting with their monkeying around with the MONKEY-TWINS.
