Game Play/ Action Shots
Lots of leaves on the court at 2pm but the Parks Dept. has the right equipment to get the job done quick.
From what I remember, this is only the second time they brought out the big guns.
Adam is not retired. After he and ZACH watched with amusement it was game on.
And nothing has changed, he still yells at the new people. Like Paul who stopped by from Dayton to play a few games.
The weather was perfect for November in New York but the time change is bad for bike polo everywhere.
More helmets being worn in games and more bikes being dialed in for polo.
And Johnny Midwest smiles a lot.
…or 818′s polo rink. I was out there this summer for some games. Joker was generous enough to drive out to LAX to pick up four of us and take to North Hollywood in his car. It’s an ex cop car. I got to sit up front. A great sunny day in California, it was good to spend it with good people and in the park BBQing. I had a really good time. And I took some pictures too. Here is a link to a set on Flickr.

I went out to Madison, a city I love to visit, and played some games with MAD Bike Polo.
I was in MKE briefly before MAD. I made sure to stop in Ben’s to say hi to Kremin, Drew and Matt.
Of about a handful of days in the state, playing polo was only about half of one of those days.
That was enough. I nearly broke my hand in the Thunderdome.
The rest of the time I drank good coffee, ate good food, helped prep food, and did “support” for a ride called Bike The Barns.
That equaled riding 50+ miles with Johnny Mid-what, Joe and Kremin. Eating more food and changing a flat tire before laying around in a park till sunset.
Madison is always a good time.
I was not playing polo because of a hurt hand, just letting it recover.
It was good to hang out. There were a good number of players and what not. HA!
I’m not sure but I think four European cities were represented in The Pit today.
I gave a Chinese can-man a dollar for the “I Los Marcos NY” bag he was using to collect cans.
Gave it to Ken aka beano for points. It was nasty with funk, not sure if the points were in the plus or minus..
Chombo is cool as shit.
Markus is back for a few weeks.
Johnny Mid-cantwin has a baller new wheel set.
Seemed like a bunch of girls were playing today. I wonder if that has anything to do with Adam retiring from polo?
Katie the Destroyer, Quinn before she bolts, Julie warming up for LMM, Fiona on her new BMW, Amber, Cecliy, and Brianna visiting from Boston.
And perfect weather.
