Veuve Clicquot Manhattan Polo Classic
May 31st, 2008 12-6pm
match begins at 3pm
Governors Island (Take the ferry from South Street)
The match will be Ralph Lauren’s Black Watch team against Asprey’s house team.

The New York Times did a story on the Black Watch team and I learned that this is a new team and the first time RL has sponsored a polo team since 1967 when they trademarked “Polo”. And more about the ongoing litigation between RL and the real polo association. Also that back in the day Mr. Lauren almost named his company “Baseball” or “Football”.

It’s FREE and maybe right after the Bridge Battle I can zip over and check it out.
