The Challenge Has Been Issued...




Pete from COMO said his team was going to Lexington to win it all...Again.

1.) I have a pizza and a case of beer for any team with a STL player that beats Pete's team during the tournament (Saturday and/or Sunday).

2.) I also have a case of beer for any team with a STL player that places better than Pete's team.

Seriously.

You have just over a week to do whatever it takes to make it happen.

MAKE IT HAPPEN!

ps. COMO men and women can buy their own pizza.

how much would take for me to go to lexinton. sorry cant spell.

COACH said...

It'll take a little blood, a little sweat, a few tears, and some gas money.

Charlie from como said...

do we get pizza if we beat one of your teams?

Anchovy said...

I always think polo wk is Trent, and then when I see him I'm like "yo Trent what's up with that post?" and then he he is like "it's not me, Its ben" and then I'm all " what the fuck, why don't everybody just post shit under their name? For christsake"

Ben said...

Instead of going to Tilles, we should just dork around in the Maplewood parking lot. Then we don't have to waste time driving to different polo places, and we can quickly pounce on the rink if the hockey dudes leave early.

That's my opinion.

PARTY TIP: Growing up isn't about getting serious or giving up what you enjoy. Becoming an adult is about becoming a super-child.

Anchovy said...

See everybody this eve.

Lucky said...

I'll be there around 6:30.

P.S. to Andrew WK: I don't take advice about "growing up" from a rock star 6 years younger than me who hasn't had a real job in a decade.

the girl said...

anchovy - can you please bring the "proper" tools that will fix my bike?

patrick - can you please bring your extra bike in case we can't fix my bike again?

nick - will you please bring you bar cutters so that we can cut down patrick's handle bars?

everyone else - if you bought a lock-in2010 tshirt (the prison bars one) can you please bring that? i just need to borrow it for a day.

thanks, that's everything on my laundry list.

if someone pays my rent i'll come to lex and do whatever it takes to win that pizza and beer. gold rush!

colin said...

i will be there at 6

Ben said...

Cole is on FUEL TV right now. PARTY!

Anonymous said...

got off work early, i'll be at Maplewood around 7ish, i need a nap so i'm not grumpy like last time. i'll bring the extra bike, plus grips and caps, plus signs for colin, plus maybe my bright neon safety vest from work, in case we still have issues with the lights.
-Patrick

Anchovy said...

I'm bringing a mini grill if anybody wants to grill. I'm not bringing much extra food so if you want a burger/dog whatever, bring it.
Ps I thought polo w.k stuff gets posted on the polo w.k. blog. (I wish I guess).

Andrew W.K. said...

Yes. You wish.

toph said...

anchovy. the yellow one!?? you're using the yellow one?

Lucky, Julia and Colin, looks like I probably can't go to Lexington. sorry. hopefully the 3 of you can work something out. -Patrick

who is up for polo on Saturday? looks like rain on sunday. -Patrick

Evannn said...

Is anyone planning on going to Little Rock? I know there won't be an overwhelming theme of rape, pillage, and destroy due to it just being friendlies, but that's why I want to go. Anyone interested?

Ben said...

I can't play Saturday.

I also can't go to Little Rock because I'll be in Chicago.

Anonymous said...

has anyone been to Little Rock for polo before? opinions of the city?
-Patrick

STL BIKE POLO said...

if it wasn't the week after lex i'd be in for sure. I want to go but don't think i can swing two weekends in a row

STL BIKE POLO said...

i am not going to be able to play saturday

Lucky said...

I really want to go to Little Rock. I was going to try to get Friday off, so I could take the back roads down through that beautiful country, but now I don't think I can get out of work.

Who else is in to leave Friday night and come back Sunday night? It's about a 7 hour drive.

Ben said...

It's so close to Lexington's tournament. Too close. Those Florida kids should've pressured Little Rock into hosting a tournament on a different weekend.

nick said...

I will be neither playing polo Saturday nor going to little rock.

I will most likely be in KC for friendlies.

floppy said...

if I sabotage the team from the inside can I get some of them beers?

tommorow polo under the bridge anyone?

anchovy said...

That early xmas polo bike wasnt bad for sure. Nice change of pace from the the usual not very good idea bikes that get linked here. In the spirit of selling stuff, i realized i have a metric shit tonne of mtn (and a few 700c)bike tires if anybody needs any. $5 a tire. I have a nice Kenda Krad. THose are good and grippy, good for fronts. Uh, lots of others if anybody needs to secure a good tire for the upcoming weekend. also have some wheels if needed (all kinds). Click my name for pics

charlie from como said...

anchovy- if those are hookworms and in decent shape i'll buy them from you! are you going to lexington?

Anonymous said...

I need 26" tires dude

Lucky said...

We would have to build boards to play under kingshighway, and I think that the rink would end up being smaller than maplewood.

However, I was just inside one of the warehouse buildings right there, and there's plenty of room for full-sized courts. We'd still have to build boards though.

Anchovy said...

Sold those hookworms for $20 earlier, sorry.

Anonymous said...

Smaller than maplewood? ha,hardly. however i do like the idea of plaing in an abandoned warehouse.... Waaaay more awesomer...
-JAke-

Lucky said...

Couldn't carry a bike in through the "entrance" I used. But with bolt cutters, all things are possible.

Ben said...

Abandoned POLO HOUSE!!!

Ben said...

Is there a way to move and transport Jersey Barriers without the use of a crane? There's a construction company near my house that has a huge supply of cement Jersey Barriers that haven't moved in over a decade.

I'd be willing to contact them about donating enough barriers for a rink if we could figure out a way to move them on our own.

Ben said...

We should see if there's room in the Lemp Brewery where we could build a rink.

Haunted polo.

Lucky said...

I think it's the Lemp Mansion that's haunted, not the brewery. Also, buildings as old as the brewery usually have columns too close together for decent polo courts.

But this place by the skate park was nice. If someone were so inclined, they could call the property owner ("for lease" sign on the front of the building) and propose that, in exchange for a key and permission to turn the lights on, we do a security sweep of the building twice a week when we play. Ask bums to leave, change the rat traps, make note of any new broken windows and graffiti. That sort of arrangement.

We get a covered, lit, soccer and hockey player free venue. They get consistent building monitoring. If the relationship is really good, we get the biggest, best 24 hour tournament venue in the country.

nick said...

polo tonight?

Ben said...

Lucky,
Call that number, recite everything you just wrote, and add "pretty please" at the end.

STL will be the home of 24-hour polo parties!

Lucky said...

I'll have to swing by after work and get the number off the building. The "owner of record" according to the city assessor has a disconnected phone number.

Down for polo tonight if it's in the city. The car is up in Chicago, so I can't get to maplewood.

Colin and Julia: I can go to Lexington if a third car/team is going, but I can't drive.

Ben said...

I can't polo tonight. I will be taking a nap until 9pm.

May Day Mayor said...

Ben said...

I can't freaking wait for May Day.

Lucky said...

The realtor/property manager for the building sez no. It was worth asking. I guess we'll just have to fight hockey dudes all summer long.

Ben said...

It was worth asking, and it would be worth asking other building owners when we see buildings with amazing polo potential.

Maplewood is working well. We just have to keep establishing our Wednesday night presence.

Lucky said...

Me and a coupla beers are going to Kennard Academy on Potomac and Brannon to hit the polo ball around for a while. Anyone who wants to join me in some practice, drop by before dark or text me.

anchovy said...

I cant remember if anybody needs a polo bike now or not. Anyway im cleaning the garage out and i got a CroMo Gt Small Mtn bike. needs stripped down and turned into a polo bike. Rigid fork, aheadset style stem (much better then quill for polo). Needs a headset and i think you are good. $40 if anybody wants it.

Peggy said...

Hi - I work over at FOX2 and was wondering if someone could contact me about doing a possible interview with someone about bike polo. I think this could be a great segment.
Could someone please contact me at peggy.pleimann@tvstl.com, thanks

Ben said...

Club rep has responded.

Time to make "We need a free indoor rink" t-shirts to wear during the interview ;)

Evannn said...

Wow we have hit the big time! We might as well go for the gold and shoot for the Edward Jones dome haha. It's not like the rams are putting it to good use...

Lucky said...

I'm interested in a new rig. But that GT is too small.

Also, my co-worker wants a decent road bike. 56-59cm depending. Whatchoo got?

Ben said...

Alright. If you want to be on tv, forget about going to Little Rock. Peggy wants to interview one of us early on Saturday April the 10th and then have us play a game with one of the hosts in the back lot of the news station.

It sounds like a fun, easy way to get some good exposure.

What we'll need is an interesting, articulate person for the inteview and enough people for a short game with the host.

Also, if we shoot any video or great photos in Lexington, we can submit those for teasers/lead ins.

Who is in?

I'm going to be in Chicage for a prior engagement on the 10th, so people are going to need to step up and take charge of this.

anchovy said...

i got a 58cm puch $100 and a 57cm terranaut for $125. both are on Clist right now if you wanna look those up.

STL BIKE POLO said...

we're supposed to play in the parking lot? that sounds lame. if they really gotta do it they should do it right and come to our actual court. i'm not too pumped about the current proposal.

"Anything worth doing is worth doing right" -HST

Ben said...

Agreed. And we can propose that to them. In reality though, I imagine they spend the majority of the interview talking to one of us about rules and equipment and then shoot us playing for less than thirty seconds.

It's not like we're going to be playing pick up there for hours.

I suggest someone volunteer to take charge and help guide Fox as they prep for this interview.

Who wants to spearhead this?

"A halfway decent opportunity is better than no opportunity." - Your Mom.

nick said...

I propose our club rep.

Ben said...

I won't be here next weekend.

the girl said...

ya, trent is right. they should come to our practice and see how we regularly play if they want to do an accurate story on stl bike polo. personally, i could care less about the "exposure" from yet another shitty "how-to play polo" news story. they are all the same.

anyone want to play at tilles tennis courts tonight?

Anonymous said...

i am up for polo at tilles tonight. -Patrick

Lucky said...

I'll be at the silverleaf tonight from 7 on to watch the blues beat the blackhawks and keep their playoff hopes alive. Cheap beer, lotsa smoke. 2 tv's.

And I 4ththe opinion that Fox has to come to us, and that I don't really care if we're on tv or not. Tehcnically, the roller hockey courts in the city parks are for roller hockey only. The attention could actually backfire on us if an uppity park district official were watching.

Ben said...

I shared everyone's concerns with Fox. I'll see what they say.

nick said...

who is going to Lexington?

Ben said...

*hand raised*

Trent said...

ME

Lucky said...

Will you be driving all of us and our bikes in the beast?

STL BIKE POLO said...

not yet. next midwest polo road trip we'll travel as one.

Ben said...

Mingling Van!

Who else is going (besides Anchovy)? Speak up!

I'm counting five right now:

Anchovy
Trent
Lucky
Nick
Ben

Loser.

I'm here. A handful of hockey players are too. But they're getting ready to leave.

Can someone bring an extra set of gloves? Like an idiot, I left mine in my garage.

Lucky said...

I will have to work a full day tomorrow. So I would not be able to meet y'all for travelling to Lexington until 5:30-6.

If I'm the only one holding you back, you should consider going without me. I can barely afford the trip as it is. Although I would prefer to go, of course.

Lucky said...

In for Lex, out for Little Rock.
