Toph A. Loaf said...

im wearing my wig tonight. kind of sad though. anytime i think of kenny loggins. i think of "return to pooh corner" thats what i get for being named "christopher robin"

Tim D. said...

Colleen and myself will be in town from Thursday - Sunday. Will there be poloing? I sure hope so.

JoeDozer said...

Good poloing tonight, good 6 on 6 poloing, and good no-touch (or whatever you want to call it).
I imagine to the outsider, the 6 on 6 polo probably looked like a slow, demented, circular bike migration to nowhere.
Good times.

PARTY TIP: Push a cupcake into your body.

King said...

Looks like were in for a COLD weekend. Anyone want to play FRIDAY? SATURDAY? & SUNDAY? It will help keep us warm 10min at a time.

Ben said...

Polo always fits into my schedule.

MORE HOT CHOCOLATE FROM THE SHELL STATION!!!

Tim D. said...

I'm free except for Saturday during the day.

Rose said...

Joe, I was an insider and it still kind of felt that way. Ha.

Friday I can play before 6. Saturday I can play after 3 (I think). Sunday I can play any time.

Anonymous said...

Toph A. Loaf said...

Ben said...

Yup. Manchester and Big Bend. Next to the pool. Behind the police station.

Alex B said...

92.7% chance i'll be there tonight, I'll be late though

nick said...

I'll be there

Ben said...

Some people have been asking about wheel covers...Here's what I did to get mine:

I went to a sign shop, told them I played Bike Polo, and explained that I wanted to zip-tie some coroplast to my wheels for safety. I asked if they had any scrap coroplast that I could buy from them. The guy said "sure", went in the back, and came out with enough coroplast to cover my wheels and several other wheels. It cost me a measly $10.

If you need wheel covers, try going to a sign shop. At the very least, everyone should consider a front wheel cover.

Toph A. Loaf said...

there is a 150% chance that tonight is gonna be amazing.

Anonymous said...

Having an amazing day is easy.

Anonymous said...

I went to R&J sign co. It's at kings highway and shaw pretty much. It was like $20 for enough coroplast to make 16 wheel covers. I think $5 is a reasonable price for 4 wheel covers.

Jon said...

^^^^ that was me, sorry.
Oh yeah, And I'll be there tonight but not until 8.

Ben Hunter said...

I have 48 spoke wheels. I don't need wheel covers. Oh.. Have you seen my kid, he has been missing for like an hour.

Anonymous said...

The slaughter begins at 5:45pm.

Alex B said...

7.3% wins. I'm not gonna make it. :(
and by the way, stl polo, you make a great wingman :)

Ben said...

Alex, I think I know what you mean. And you're welcome.

Toph A. Loaf said...

has anyone seen my right pantleg. i lost it about 12 hrs ago.

Rose said...

You mean your scarf?

Ben said...

Last night, I was loading stuff into my car, and Patrick was in the rink getting his bag. He stopped and asked, "Whose scarf is this" as he pointed to something on the rink's surface.

I was like, "Hold it up so I can see it."

And then Patrick says, "Oh. It's just Toph's pant leg."

Toph A. Loaf said...

if i could describe the look on my girlfriend's face. it would be someting like... the look on Patricks face. right before anything(checks, shots, people riding bikes into or around him, winding up to swing wildly) happens. sheer terror.

Snow expected Sunday. Play!

Ben said...

Bloomington is going on a winter hiatus.

They must hate winter training.

King said...

They are just trying to ditch that face bruiser they hate....


POLO TOMORROW! PLAY!

Toph A. Loaf said...

my messenger buddy from ft. lauderdale is gonna start playing with us in a couple of weeks. he's a giant(6'6") and he would be a good addition to our club. i am out for tonight. but i will continue my winter training at my new job downtown.

the girl said...

i'm probably not going to make it to training tonight either... the new job keeps me working till 7pm, so it's a crap shoot if i'll get my shit together in time :(

colin said...

BLOG!

King said...

Polo. Friday. 545. Maplewood. Because it's going to be 4 degrees Sunday... Text Jake if u can make it... Otherwise let's train our livers!

Kayce said...

Does any one have any extra square taper cranks laying around. Ideally with a small ring already on it. After much research that will be the easiest way to fix colin's bike

King said...

I do but there's no bb... Just arms

King said...

Does anyone have Alex, Jon, Joe, Sean, or Connors numbers? We need to see if there playing tonight.

Coach said...

Let's train our livers instead!!!

I know a bike-friendly bar where we can go.

Ben said...

We're playing at Maplewood. If you're not busy and you're not at polo, YOU'RE WRONG.

Anonymous said...

Jake add me to your text crowd for polo... Hard for me to make it out on weeknights though...
