A Thank You to Dockers

My team and I were lucky enough to get set up with a sponsorship from Dockers for our participation in the 2010 World Hardcourt Bike Polo Championships in Berlin. We were set up with some new pants and they custom screened the winged anchor logo on some t-shirts for us. This was all despite our team name being Profane Lobotomy. It all worked out great!   Thank you for your support.

Rad Ball stamps at Keirin Cafe

Adam, Zach, Matt and I stopped at keirinberlin one of the days after Worlds. This is a famous shop. I got to meet Mo, who Zach and Adam were already friends with. We hung out for a bit, looked at bikes, drank Bionade, talked about the kids today. Matt asked me to get a photo of one of the many old cycling stamps that are framed in the shop. A really impressive collection. I took a close look at them because the art used is really interesting. Kind of reminds me of what some fliers are like for this generation of cyclist. After snapping the one for Matt I noticed a couple of rad ball stamps.

A Crippling Case of Chlamydia (NYC)

That was our team name. Paul thought of it. Way better than anything I think of.

August 24th, 2009 Long Beach, CA

The day after my NY to LA ride was complete I played bike polo in LA. The day (night) after that I played in Long Beach. Dukes was there for some games too. Thanks again to Josh for letting us borrow your bike.

…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.
