I think this is the best spokecard I have seen all year! But, I want to see more. If you are having a tournament and don’t give the players a spokecard for the event, then that’s just crap. Anyway, this Championships is over. Visit the official site for results and such. Also if you want to laugh at how small the goals were look at this. It’s a wonder anyone won when you combine Euro non-stop goalie action with the more-narrow-than-a-bike-is-long goals. Thank god for footdowns.
A few sneak peaks of what is to come.
Of course this is unauthorized and if I were playing in this clusterfork of an event I might lose points for the leaks, or who knows I might get points for pouring attention on them. Either way I’m still gonna stand back when Ken aka BEANO blows a gasket. Monday never seemed so far or felt such longing from one man. Maybe not many of you know this but he’s about to lose it. I saw him tonight and it looked like he didn’t even remember his name. And he needs a haircut worse that Adam ever did. He said he rode his bike across the country this summer but he looks like he’s been living in the subway tunnels. Speaking of tunnels, I’ve been keeping my ear to the ground about all this Los Marcos business and I heard that Los Marcos won’t be able to make it to their own event due to a tunnel collapse. But word has it one of them was on the right side and the other two are trapped or vice versa… not sure. I think there are gonna be so many wanna-be’s wearing dumb masks this weekend no one will even notice. Not after how wasted people are gonna get on FOUR.
On a 100% serious note, Ken needs tables for the food. Something at The Pit big enough to set all the food he’s feeding you. Any leads on tables.. or even some sawhorses and a unhinged door should be directed to him soon.
The spork card
New York’s bike polo crew hasn’t done very much to create an image for it’s loosely united club. And by that I mean we don’t have stickers, t-shirts, patches, jackets and things like that. We do have a core group of truly top notch players that aren’t afraid to travel 15 to 20 players deep and win big tournament. We do have a website, New York Hardcourt. And we do have a logo, as seen below. This logo has only been used for the spokecards and t-shirt art for the ESPI 2 in NYC. The concept for the art was my own, and the design was done by Brad Baker of Trackstar.
As Montana and others make headway into the world of making hardcourt bike polo a real sport with it’s own governing body and stand alone World and Continental Bike Polo Championships. So will New York’s bike polo crew, in trying to create an image and an official name. It’s almost certain that the logo will be the Statue of Liberty art, or a variation of. And the name may end up being NYC Bike Polo or New York Hardcourt since these are the two URL’s for the clubs website. But the official name of the club is still up in the air, and suggestions are being considered(as far as I know). If you are a New York player and have any ideas for the club, now is the time.

An all girls Alley Cat that started and finished at Tompkins Square Park. Can anyone tell me the official results, and total number of racers?
