On The Horizon...



Since STL is not making an appearance in Little Rock this coming weekend, the next tournament on the STL Bike Polo horizon is the Riverside Tournament in Lafayette, Indiana. A handful of people have expressed a little interest. I suggest you decide if you want to make the trip ASAP and start talking to potential teammates (talk to them on Wednesday at polo).

For anyone that does go to Lafayette, consider this:



As for normal STL Bike Polo action, Wednesday at 6pm we will be at Maplewood. Show up on time and shred. Our regular Sunday schedule will be 2pm until dark now that the sun is on its summer schedule.

Party hard!

I got approached about doing a daytime polo demo on may 15th for the columbia block house shows. There may also be Derby demo or bmx demo. Let me know if you are interested in this and I'll let u handle it because I want nothing to do with it.

Zachary is a dumb ass idiot.

I can't come to polo tomorrow, but if someone needs a third person for the Lafayette tournament, let me know. I would be willing to go, but only if I know soon so that I can ask off work.

zach-bloomington said...

Lee if you think i'm an idiot i must be doing something right!!

Why aren't you coming to Midwesterns?

King said...

Zachary your truly an idiot. This is Jake. And I'm calling you out. I hope to see you and Bruce on the dance floor. Bloomington is cool but you two morons have got somthin coming. You have been begging to be beaten senseless since the lock in.

I'm out for tonight fellas. Bike can't keep up after running into Pete.

zach-bloomington said...

ahahahaaha, oh now i know i'm doing something right!

I have a prediction. My team will beat your team in Lafayette.

Beaten senseless?? Elbows don't score goals ;)

Ben said...

Who is actually showing up tonight? Do we have six?

Trent said...

I'm out tonight too.

nick said...

I will be there. If we don't have six, I will do some practicing.

Anonymous said...

i'll be there at 8:30 after my class -Patrick

Ben said...

We don't have enough people. Everyone stay home.

chocolate alaska said...

where's jon been?

Lee said...

I've gotta miss it. I'm deep in a plumbing project at the house.

King said...

Zachary. Elbows don't score goals. But seeing you bleed is my goal.

zach-bloomington said...

Lee, does that mean you're coming to Lafayette???

Blood and vomit are standard for me. Let's up the stakes... a friendly wager, anyone?

Andrew W.K. said...

PARTY TIP: Time is never wasted when you are.

King said...

Someone tell that moron that King is Jake. Not Lee.

Do we post stupid crap on the Bloomington site?

Give me a fork god dammit.

Party harder NOW

"i dont party against anyone. i party with them."
-Lee
that being said i cant imagine him calling anyone out.
King\Jake
Shin\Lee
Beef\Ben
the names,now scrawled in stone with blood i imagine are actually derived from a poorly scribbled yard sale sign(possibly written in blood as well) attempting to write Kings-highway and instead wrote King-shin-way.
Then i think it was used to name a team once assembled in the days of STL bike polo yore that inclued Jake. Lee. and his little brother Cole.

zach-bloomington said...

King\Jake
Shin\Lee
Beef\Ben

See, i never knew that. now i know.

I give you guys shit because i like you, you know that right? plus i learned all this play rough/party harder/love life stuff from you guys.

How about a six pack of bloomington beer put up against a sixer of something from STL? jake?

King said...

How about a pint of blood?



Btw I know this is all in good FUN!

Ben said...

STL doesn't drink fancy Indiana beers. We drink Stag, Busch, and PBR.

Anonymous said...

I drink free beer no matter the brand.

PARTY TIP: Remember there are three times for partying... 1. When you're happy. 2. When you're sad. 3. When you're reading this.

When is this game... I want to watch..

Because I don't know how to play polo.

STL said...

It will be a slaughter... like wolverines vs rabbits...

Andrew WK said...

It's Friday! Friday! Gotta PARTY HARD on Friday!

Toph A. Loaf said...

does anybody have a super cheap 1/8th inch stem i could use for my polo bike? if not i could of course just go to bikeworks. figured maybe a few people might have some stuff they were wanting to get rid of.

King said...

Snolo?

Jon Rinehart said...

I'm down. No snow. puddle polo. 2pm mt p? Don't be a pussy it's just water.

Where have you been B.J.?

Ben said...

If you're playing puddle polo, Mt. Pleasant is a bad idea. Any water on that surface makes it incredibly slick.

Lindenwood is your best bet for puddle polo.

I am out.

I'm in. I'll see if I can find a big squeegie if that'll help get anyone else out of bed. See you at lindenwood Rinefart

crl said...

Is the STL crew gonna play this Wednesday, March 30? I'm in town from CoMO and would love to play some pick up with you guys (and gals).

Ben said...

After a quick look at the weather, we should be playing on Wednesday night.

We play at our Maplewood rink, which is at the corner of Manchester and Big Bend...Behind the police station.

We try to start as close to 6pm as possible. And we'll play until the lights go off at 10pm.

crl said...

Awesome. Thanks for the info, Ben. I'll check this blog for any updates, but I look forward to it.

Kayce said...

I know I havent been around in a while, but thats going to change starting Sunday. But I just want to throw my hat in the ring regarding Stl's rep for NAH.

Captain Obvious said...

STL has not affiliation to NAH...

Unless you are talking about NABH... National Association of Bike Hockey

PARTY TIP: True wealth isn't about how much money you have. It's about your ability to wake up, rock out, and party really hard.

Ben said...

Hey STL,

We need move those boards out of Atomic Cowboy in the immediate future.

Who can help?

Francis said...

I will help you move boards. Also, I don't know if anyone is still planning on going to Lafayette this weekend, but I am not going.

-Francis

Anonymous said...

Someone call Lucky. I think those boards belong to him. Send him a freight bill for shipping to Chicago.

Ben said...

We're moving the boards tomorrow BEFORE polo.

Show up at Handlebar around 5:30 and move the boards from Atomic to the Handlebar basement. With enough people, it will only take a few minutes.

Ben said...

You will get paid. You won't get splinters.

Andrew W.K. said...

PARTY TIP: Never, never, never, never, never, never, never, never, never, never, never, never be afraid to dance.

crl said...

Polo still to be played at the Maplewood rink?

Lucky said...

You guys can keep 'em. I've gotta make another set of boards up here for the stupid bench minor that will then get stored who knows where.

STL... said...

Boards shipped COD to Chicago. You should receive them sometime this morning.

Good Luck!

King said...

POLO MAPLEWOOD 6PM - 10PM

Pre~POLO~party! @ HandleBar! 5:30! This will only take a second if we all show. Don't be afraid!

chocolate alaska said...

yall ready for some bike hockey?

Rose said...

I'll help with boards. See you kids at 5:30pm.

Kevin W. said...

I want STL in Lafayette this weekend.. What does it take?

King said...

Better weather, and a third

Jon Rinehart said...

I'm coming. probably around 6:30

Ben said...

Great day.

Pizza party.

Polo shredding.

Milkshake party.

Post-polo drinking.

STL Bike Polo!

Lucky said...

Are any of you mini bikers serious about coming to Thunderdrome in Detroit at the end of the month? The Chicago folks are gonna be buying tix this week to enter in various races and rent a van. It would be awesome to see you guys on the track and in the infield!

Anonymous said...

They should come to st. louis to hang out. Its a much better place.

Ben said...

Anybody want to polo on Saturday as well as Sunday? The weather is supposed to be nice.

Lucky said...

Well, the organizers are doing the events in a few locations over the summer. Maybe you can convince them to have one at Penrose Park. We'd come down for that.

But, yeah, cool events aside, St Louis is a much nicer place to hang out than Detroit.

Ben said...

That event sounds like a good time. Detroit is just too far to lug our collection of bikes, minibikes, scooters, motorcycles, guns, fireworks, and dangerous animals.

chocolate alaska said...

polo tomorrow!

The pussification of bike polo:

chocolate alaska said...

I nominate Cole to be our NAH rep. from what I've gathered from the legion of bike polo website he'd be perfect.

King said...

Wow. Bike polo pussies. Play bike hockey. Charlie shouldn't have apologized.

Ben said...

R.I.P. Bike Polo: 2000-2011

Charlie should have laughed in his face.

Sadly, these babies are the people deciding which course Bike Polo should take.

Ben said...

Was that video being discussed on LOBP? I would break my silence on that board to proclaim that crybabies like that are the reason bike polo is never going to reach its full potential.

I've squeezed-off and bumped countless people much harder than that, and none of them demanded an apology...None of them would have gotten one either. To all of you tough, non-complainers out there: thanks. Thanks for understanding what Bike Polo is and how it should be played...even within the neutered rules of NAHBP.
