poor kids drink water, too

It's been three weeks since we called the parks department, and still the fountain at the park is broken. May I suggest that we all call and remind them?

314-622-4800- re: the drinking fountain (there's only one) at Mt. Pleasant Park in South City.


It has come to my attention that we now show up on Google searches, however, we have one problem. The blog only shows up in a search for "stl" -- so I'm using this post as a place to list a few terms that should help us get more hits.

St. Louis
Saint Louis
Mullet (just for fun)

If you guys can think of any other words which need to appear somewhere on this page to get more Google hits, just make your own post or reply to this one!

just like the last presidential election . . .

the winner of the popular vote is not the actual winner.

Early on it looked as though 7:00pm would be the start time for polo this sunday. After a re-count it was determined that we would actually be playing at noon.

Hope you can all live with your decision for the next four years.

p.s. F that poll, I'm never posting one of those again

At least we're not these people...

They are better at ball handling than I am, but jeez - I think I'd try to find a better bike polo court :-)

Sunday Night?

I know that all of the votes are not yet in, but it looks like the majority is leaning toward playing a late game Sunday night (around, say, 7?) before riding the FBC Full Moon Fiasco. Who's in?

Next game?

So, Sunday at 2?

week two photos

In lieu of playing tonight, I've added these photos of the matches on 7.15.07. The ball was bigger, the games were faster, and we had more fun.


CANCELLED - Wednesday Night Game

The game for tonight is cancelled! We don't have enough for a full game and it's freakin' hot outside.

week one photos

Ladies and gentlemen, please enjoy these photos from our first match on 8 July 2007. The game was slow, the ball was tiny, and most of the photos we took were bad. Stay tuned for exciting photos from week two - "The Battle for Seattle."


Also, I apologize if the photo formatting is weird. I'm experimenting.

Night Game !

Well ok, it's more of an evening game. It's not like we'll be playing under the lights or anything. Quite a few people will be out of town Sunday, so we're playing a mid-week game instead. Wednesday 7/18 6:30pm.

The mini soccer ball debuted sunday and proved to make for a much quicker game than the street hocky ball. We had some pretty high-scoring games. I believe Paul was awarded the most acrobatic goal prize, and Seth went home proud owner of most graceful crash.

check out these pics shana posted at photobucket

Edited to add date & time, that is helpful stuff to know.

inaugural bicycle polo match

We will be having our very first-ever bike polo/BBQ extravaganza this Sunday 7/8 at Mt. Pleasant Park. Show up around 2:00pm and we'll discuss what rules we want to set in place. We'll probably take it easy for awhile since none of us will know what we're doing.

Anyone is welcome to come and participate in this mess that is destined to be spoken of for years to come. If you do come by, don't bring your $3k carbon racing bike, unless you like to ruin expensive things. We'll have six very swanky, custom made bike-polo specific mallets available for your use.

Bring some food, we'll have a grill going for after the match. And bring a cooler full of your favorite refreshment.

Be sure to tell all of your bike-ridin buddies about STL Bike Polo.
