St. Louis Polo Powerhouse Training



This week:
Wind sprints.

Mallet pickup shuttle runs.
Footdown cuddlefest.
Continuous red rover.

Next Week:
Opposite hand polo.
Chaining cars to our bikes and pulling them around Mt. Pleasant Park.
Wind sprint races against the biker gang.
Playing polo while wearing backpacks full of gravel.
Releasing a ferocious dog onto the rink in the middle of a games (cuddle without being chewed).


Embrace the fear.

Today, I left polo COMPLETELY satisfied.

Just thought I'd share.

i found about 4 random mallets at my house after polo, in my garage. I will bring them next polo game we play and all the newbies can grab one and HOLD ONTO IT because it will be your mallet from now on.

I would out play the ferocious dog.

Deep Down said...

I'm starting to think that to understand Bike Polo, first I must understand Tegan and Sara.

Ben said...

I WANT MORE:

Trips to the skatepark.
High intensity polo drills.
Painful hill climbs.
Tournament play at pickup.
Fear being embraced.
Bulldogs being released.
Satisfying cuts and bruises.
ANDREW WK AT FULL VOLUME!

Let's make it happen!

Anonymous said...

I want less:

Tegan and Sara references.

Anonymous said...

First you are going to have to show me Tegan and Sara.

Anonymous said...

I can give you everything else on the list.

They can teach us about going all the way in the other direction.

Andrew WK said...

I love Tegan and Sara. Especially Tegan. And Sara.

Polo Enthusiast said...

Please more polo talk...

Lee said...

This is polo talk. I'll show you on Sunday.
-Lee

Coach said...

First you have to learn why the best polo player can beat you everytime.

Then you have to play polo in the way that no one else can. Your Way.

Anonymous said...

More thrash metal during polo and polo drills!

mr. awesome said...

YES

trent said...

i want so many people in the speed circles that you can't turn without rubbing tires

Andrew WK said...

In a perfect speed circle you don't have to turn.

Ben said...

I think we need Sharred with us at tournaments. He'd stand quietly on the sidelines, and then when it's time for a STL team to take the rink, he'll pull out a giant boom box and start blaring Metal. Like WWF enterance themes.

I also think we need to release frightening viral videos of us training (punching buckets of sand, eating glass, doing push ups on a bed of nails). This will start the terrifying legend of STL Bike Polo.

Anonymous said...

Our Legend is already in process. We don't get to write it over.

Instead we are going make it pure-er and pure-er until its perfect And we realize our Perfect Legend is only the start of the next thing.

Anonymous said...

Lets make it perfect.

God said...

Thrash Metal is a big part of perfection.

trent said...

it already is perfect now it just needs to be experienced

Coach said...

Lets train by exploring Tenacious D.

I think they can help us understand personal legends and team work.

Ben said...

Tenacious D movie/music night?

this is polo related said...

anyone who cannot pick up a mallet and has been playing for 3 plus months must race Cole and or Lee in the Travis the Truck or Little Tanfastic. get ready to kill somebody. KILL SOMEBODY!

SAND said...

fuck.

Lee said...

Ben,
Are you Tegan or Sara?

I'll tell you who I am, but you have to go first. Mine will not change whatever you say.

THIS IS TRAINING.
-Lee

nick said...

If you wish to become a better polo player, please enroll in the STL School of Bike Polo.

Classes will be held on odd dated Tuesday and Thursdays. The focus of this month’s sessions will be ball handling and passing. Only by the mastery of these elementary skills will you progress to Next Month's session of "Defense is the new Offense" Following up with a third session of, “Laser accurate shooting, finding the goalies holes.”

Associate Professors giving guest lectures will be Anchovy with a lecture on "Patience, blocking and picking, the mastery of bike polo positioning." Lee with a lecture entitled "Zen the Art of Bike Polo Philosophy." and Lucky with "Mallet making and Coaching, How to win the game from A to Z."

Enrollment is limited, so sign up quickly and establish yourself as a dominant polo player.

(Batteries not included, be prepared for many tears of joy and pain.)

mr. awesome said...

The Legend of St. Louis Bike Polo begins with. Nick Knobby. And With Lucky. And With Trent.

Lucky said...

Nick and Anchovy are wanting to go to Pensacola for the tournament and at least one day of the pick-up stuff beforehand. Tentatively Thursday through Monday. I can not join them. Who is interested?

Lee said...

Nick's comment is perfect.
-Lee

Ben said...

How much knowledge of Tegan and Sara do I need to have before making that choice? Or should I just *know* which one I am?

Give me a minute.

Lee said...

Ben's comment is perfect.

Ben said...

Tegan.

Lee said...

I'm Tegan.

Training.

Ben said...

Nick,
Where do I sign up?

Here?

Screw it.

Don't bother inviting me. I'm already there. And I'm winning games.

Coach said...

Everyone is required to do one hour of polo related training today to make up for the hour that was wasted due to hockey players occupying multiple rinks.

Andrew WK said...

PARTY TIP: The hardest thing about making your dreams come true is believing that dreams can really come true at all. Believe it!

Anonymous said...

This is the best comments section I've seen since FBC found a dead coyote.

Lucky said...

From Ryan in Pensacola: "Tournament courts will be at the same location as last year. But this year we will move the courts to the north side of the parking lot so the rumble strip will not be in play. They will be wood boards 2ft sides and hopfully 4ft backs. maybe 2 ft all around."

Today, I went to the beach front with my children. I found a sea shell and gave
it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She placed the shell
to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I had to tell someone!
