If you thought the Tampa Bay Rays were over the top with their road trip dress-up themes, wait until you see this.
The Rays celebrated the Chinese Zodiac’s Year of the Snake by bringing a 20-foot python from Busch Gardens into the home clubhouse.
Something tells me this was manager Joe Maddon’s idea – so I’m glad to see he was right in the thick of things with his arms around “Asia.”

A 20-foot python is in the Rays clubhouse today. Why? Because it's the Chinese Year of the Snake. Duh. pic.twitter.com/uM1jVy0Zut— Tampa Bay Rays (@RaysBaseball) August 15, 2013
