I love training.
anyone want to play polo Thursday evening? I probably can't make it Wednesday, or if I can, i wont show up till late. last week's polo at maplewood was so intensely fun, i would like to play again before I leave town for over a week. -Patrick
what time do you play on wednesdays?
Is polo happening on Wednesday? If so, what time? A team from Bloomington might make the trek if it's happening early enough.
We should decide on a place and time soon so that we can tell the Bloomington guys something concrete. Evan, Travis has your sunglasses and said he'll bring them on Wednesday.
We polo at 6 on Wednesdays...Probably at Maplewood because of the lights and the ability to play late (late = 10pm). Maplewood is next to the pool and behind the police station at the corner of Manchester and Big Bend.I'm curious: Does anyone want to see "Inception" one night in Madison? I could wait until we get back to STL, but I think it'd be a fun team bonding experience after a full day if polo battle.
Test. Comments aren't showing up. Test.
-Shin - Beef-. Let's practice tonight. Play some games at tilles? Anyone else on bored? I can't play Wednesday. Tonights the night.
ill play tonight. i cant play wed either. anyone else down? i can play thursday. if thats still an option.
i'll train you three.
I was going to help Katie assemble her new bike tonight. I imagine that won't take long. I could roll by the park afterwards. Keep me updated.
The ESPI V t-shirts declare the New York club's intentions. "I didn't come here to play Bike Hockey," reads the back.
anybody have any high quality (lightweight) ski poles or mallet head materials?I need to make a new mallet before the tournament.
I saw that quote about bike hockey. The person wearing that shirt is certainly a cancer in HARDCOURT Bike Polo.If you don't want to get bumped and checked, the grass polo meeting is down the hall.
Trent. stop by my house, I will take care of your mallet material needs
im down for this eve. I would be there at 7ish. Tilles? ok.
so. whos playing tonight? 6pm. hockey rink in tilles? ben, are you fully assembling that bike tonight? freewheel and brakes? that may take a minute. brakes anyways. come to tilles if you can. looks like some people will be there.
I can't play tonight or Thursday, but I am definitely in for Wednesday, especially if Bloomington is coming.
Bloomington - Assume we'll be playing at Maplewood around 6pm on Wednesday night. Some people may be able to start earlier. The court may change but we'll keep you updated.-Trent
is inception a movie or a band?
Movie. Google it. It should be good.
Tillies is soccer central. Somebody better get there early if this is really going down this evening.
yeah, that tilles is gonna be bumpin. Should hit the Lindenhood, but whatevs, im gonna be late. Got some clist appointments to make. See you at 7-730. Ahh yeah. im stoked to play you guys as a team.
chovi is right. lindenwood it is! 6-6:30. later dudes!
Echoing Anchovy: Lindenwood would be easier to get and hold. Just a suggestion.
Ben, can i have you or your dad's email? i got an old tonka truck for sale for cheap. $10. I can email pics real quick and easy like. Its a cool old one.
“We can finish in the top, and have beaten great teams, but we're definitely not favorites,” says Jonny when asked if they have a shot at the championship. Rather, he cites teams from Vancouver, Seattle, New York, and Richmond, Virginia as serious contenders, as well as one from Milwaukee.from here: http://www.thedailypage.com/daily/article.php?article=29745
Where is it at tonight? I'm in.-Lee
Awesome guys, can't wait to come to STL Polo Camp for a night. Not sure if Zach can still come but Rinzin and I should be there.-Travis (bloomington)
Ben, Travis wants to know how many red balls you left in bloomington and what kind they are.
I lost two blue balls
Both balls were red Franklin AGS balls. One was drilled. The other still had water in it. It's really not a big deal. I think we had five or six reds last night.THE RETURN OF THE KING!
Great Polo Last night
dudes sorry, bloomington is pooping out on ya. we all have to work really early tomorrow or late tonight so we gotta save the trip for another time. We are still gonna play at home though! Sorry evan your shade will come soon! And ben, we'll give you your balls.travis
Looks like rain tonight anyway. Good night to skip it.
Don't worry about my balls. They were a sacrifice to the polo gods. A small price to pay for the 1st place trophy from the Bloomington Invitational.
well said BEEF. whenever there is victory, there is cost of victory. does anyone feel like playing on turdsday? AKA thursday?

is polo on tonight at all?
I'll still play tonight, if anyone else is up for it.
Polo was awesome last night! My arm feels fine today. Cant wait till sunday!!! Thanks for the awesome welcome back dudes! couldnt ask for a better night.
If its not raining i will be at the maplehood rink, unless we wanna try Lindenhood. Water on Maplewood is nuts slick. It will have to be 100% dry. Lindenhood is more forgiving. Whatever, just let me know or post here.
I agree with anchovy on maplewood slickness, but I'm always down for later polo... But after maplewood water polo a couple of weeks ago lindenwood might be a safer option. I'll be at Lwood at 6:30 unless I hear otherwise
Francis and I will be there (probably closer to 6:45 or so).
me too. 6:30-7 ish. Lindenhood
Changed back to Maplewood . Soccer at lindenwood (I'm at lindenwood now)
I know he only appears around Halloween, but I wish Althotas would go to Madison with us...And spit blood on us before our first game.Just saying.
PARTY TIP: You're alive, so you might as well have a blast. What else is life for except giving your all and having a ball?
Running list of things to bring to Madison:Fireworks.Spiked shoulder pads.Kicker ramp.Live chicken(s).Throwing stars.Mini helmet for chicken.Hatchet for chicken slaughter.Boombox.Buckets of sand.Heavy punching bag.What else am I forgetting?
iron pipes for bending.
tent, four loko, laser sharks
Yes, Nick! I forgot about bending stuff.We also need Stack!
we DO NOT need any Stack
CUBE OF DEW
Quote from a thread on "dot CA" :if I can get everyone around these parts to stop learning sweet tricks to score on all you chumps, selling comic books, lifting giant weights, drinking four loko, smoking the stickiest of the icky, being from New Jersey, chugging smirnoff ice, stepping away from the mallet laboratory, and having more fun than anyone in the world... then ESPI's will be in Richmond next year. Pending our ability to create four courts designated for bike poloI guess these are the dudes to hang with as they seem to think they are "having more fun than anyone in the world"
Dudes that are "having more fun than anyone in the world" don't waste their time posting on LOBP.
You need some Joose! Wasn't joose what we were drinking Trent? Joose is the new sparks.
No it was STACK. I've never seen or heard of it again. I think it was a one time special item. Didn't you think it tasted like wine?
Oh yeah! Stack. It was like beer that tasted like wine. Bad combo. But super strong. They need to make whiskey beer and stop trying to create new alchopops.
Stack was a mystery... Does it even exist? Was that a dream?
I have photos that prove it wasn't a dream. Stack is too real.
Tournament simulating all-day polo on Sunday? Start early, eat at the court, play hard. I need to get a whistle and practice reffing. You all need to practice kicking dirt onto my shins.
...And cussing and screaming in your face.You should wear a Foot Locker uniform so I immediately know where to direct my rage after a penalty call.
"a CRISP can of stacks is a great way to get a party started..."-open up a can of party.-hey, .ca partiers. dont bother inviting STLBIKEPOLO to your party. were already there.
we need to have somebody in an STLBP shirt(preferably warm up jacket) who's only job is to have a hat to throw on the ground and yell at the referee ala Lou Pinnella.Or...he can have stuff to throw at the ref. empty cans of STACK? ala vintage mid ninties Mike Keenan.
If I feel worn down or tired out, I just say, "Suck it up, Andrew!" and start partying again. The key to life is perseverance.
RSVP me for tourney simulation play on sunday... IV GOT THE RAGE IN ME!!!
im already there...
Pizza at polo again!
Pointer-polo-asaurus?I'll get a whistle, earplugs, a striped shirt, and a chest protector with a bullseye on it so you can all practice throwing stuff at me.
g-pa! i cant believe you arent post-poning polo for some FUTBOL game. count that as a victory for BP!other notes-"penal....penal...penalty!!!!" Are there red and yellow cards for BP penalties or do you just get to go drink some water in a little box. can dudes get thrown out of tournaments? how many party vans are going to madison? all these questions will be answered on sunday.(i know theres only one van going. that was just for dramatic effect)
I'll play before and/or after the world cup finals. Unless one of you future phone owners can tether to a laptop and stream the match courtside.Tapping holes is not fun.
NAHBPC training is more important than the World Cup finals.
Ben- I'm not playing at the NAs, so my role at polo today is more like a sparring partner. Or a tackling dummy. What time/which park are we doin' this polo pizza party today?
Lindenwood is my vote. Tables for pizza, easy to order pizza from , court similar size to the next tournament court.Shade. Water. Central location.I don't know what time. I can't make it till about 1 but that doesn't mean others can't show up before thenPs. Boombox would be nice
lindenwood is clearly the best option. it would be just plain silly to practice on giant Mt. Pleasant. no doubt, shania and jamaal would for sure eat all of our pizza. i say...home court. 12:30-1. ill can be there about 12:30. post it here if thats too early. i dont want to be there by myself for an hour.
Toph, I'm bringing a spoke wrench if you need those wheels trued up. Seem to remember a slight wobble. That goes for everybody. Free wheel trueing today!
I'll be there between 3:30 and 4, unless the game is lop-sided or boring. Cos that's just how much you all mean to me.
I just sent everybody a text for 1:30 polo at lindenwood. I'll be there at that time (or by 1:45)Anchovy
STL! ATX +nick lembo from bloomington will be in STL on monday. we are staying with my aunt Vivian, she says she is near maplewood...you play there, right? Want to get some pick-up happening?5127975483 hollllller!-mo, atx
Mo,I'll be there!-Lee
Check hotels dot com for rooms near the dane county airport. There are deals 2-4 miles from the courts for 50-60 a night. 70-90 a night for hotels with a pool in the same area.Mo, Jazz, Nick, see you tomorrow night! Keep an eye on the blog to find out the wheres and whens. We do play in maplewood, but it's too slick if it's rained recently.
we could play at maplewood. lindenwood has benches and a pavillion and bathrooms and a water fountain filled with mud and mounted goals and lots of cool stuff. maplewood has extension cords for lights, we can play later. its kinda slick, even when its not wet. maplewood court is right off manchester by the ALDI and right next to the highschool\swimming pool.
I'd rather play late at Maplehood tonight and take it easy on Wednesday with a mellow polo session before NAs.
geez ben if you love maplewood so much why dont you marry it. Toph can play there.
X2 to benLets do maplewood tonight at 6. We can play later and its closer to where the Austin folks are staying. And plus we get the rockin maplewood polo jamz. Always a plus in my book!!
85 degrees. sunny. tunes. polo. out of towners. lights. what more could we ask for?
Beef do we need more lights?
Three of my four lights have new bulbs. The fourth light may burn out. So if you have a single light to being, I'm sure it'd be a helpful backup plan.In short: Yes. At least one more light.
i got that one light beefburger. dont worry about it. see you at polo.
