Who originally discovered that video? It's so insane.

...so insane that AWK put it into the "I Want To See You Go Wild" music video.

We should play bike polo tonight.

Rose said...

Anyone have thoughts on thought? It's pretty nice out....

Rose said...

And by that extra thought, I mean tonight. And apparently Baby J's thoughts are yes.

Phil said...

I can play tonight. Do we have enough?

I'm out. Battling a stomach bug.

Anybody find more Lock-In beer hookups?

Stanislavich said...

What up STL!

FTW and LAFAYETTE INDIANA are going to be driving back from Colorado on Jan 7/8 with our polo bikes. We are looking for some polo on Saturday night??(with a place to crash for 4 people)or on Sunday the earlier the better. We still need to drive back 7 hours home for school and work so we cant really play to late on Sunday. We will let COMO know the same deal, so who ever is planing on some polo on those days, let us know.

Stanislavich said...

It would really be awesome if we can work out a pick up in COMO on Saturday night and then polo in STL on Sunday morning??

Rose said...

Hey Indys, if you need an STL floor to sleep on, Francis and I can hook you up. We probably won't make it to Como, though.

Stanislavich said...

Oh yeah Francis used to play in Bloomington! I think? Yea that would be great. We are just looking for some polo and a place to crash on Saturday Night. So it's whoever wants to host us and play some polo, that's where we will go!!

When do you guys play polo? Sunday?

Rose said...

Yep, same Francis.

We pretty much play on Sundays, and tend not to be great at rescheduling days (but we can generally manage to show up earlier than our usual 2pm if out-of-towners are involved).

Anonymous said...

Anyone up for some polo today?

-Baby J

Phil said...

I'm in. Should we start at 1? Don't want to hear any "I'm partied out" excuses.

King said...

I can play around 2

Anonymous said...

Mt Pleasant, 2:30!

King said...

Is on! Bike polo 230 @ mt P!

Phil said...

Good polo today! Lock-in approaches. Let me know if I can do anything to help. Don't really have any connections for beer or anything but I can help build, transport, pickup, print shit.

Ben said...

We need a couch for the special room we were discussing. Everyone be on the lookout for free couches that aren't gross.

Ben said...

Michael from Louisville will be in STL on the Wednesday before the Lock-In for a business issue on Thursday. Can anyone put him up for the night on Wednesday?

Ben said...

Missouri's bench minor team color is white. If anyone has an opinion on what the jerseys should look like, I'd love to hear your thoughts.

White party tshirts with blood running down the front

King said...

White t's. Black outline of Missouri. Blood dripping from each of the players hometown. Ya dig

STL BIKE POLO said...

I could make those shirts. For a nominal fee.

Anonymous said...

Get plain white tees. Have Althotas spit blood on them. Videotape it. Put it on YouTube. Missouri polo intimidation video #1.

Anonymous said...

yep. that wins.

Jon Rinehart said...

Anyone interested in polo tonight?

Rose said...

I'm sick and can't play :(
Someone who doesn't usually play wednesdays should go in my stead, it is so nice out!

Anonymous said...

I just got back in town and would like to play tonight -Patrick

Phil said...

I'll be there at 6. I might work on the nets, I know they could use some help. POLO!!

Anonymous said...

Consider my vote for shirts to be the missouri outline with blood implemented in some way. But like... probably not really someone's blood.

Lets get some shirts with pockets for Jake's sake, too.

- Nick K

Anonymous said...

Everyone on the team should have blood drawn and mixed with Althotas' pig blood when splattering shirts.

Like when KISS put their their own blood into the red ink for their 1977 comic book.

Anonymous said...

Not real blood? Someone just got kicked off the team.

Jon Rinehart said...

I will gladly donate my blood to a good cause.

The Lock-In is getting close!

It's going to be so awesome. I can't wait.

Everyone make sure Sherrid is in attendance.

Hey everyone,

Ben asked me to organize housing for the lockin. It looks like we need housing for 14 people right now.

Can people post if they can house people and how many?

Thanks!

I believe some of the Louisville guys intend to party so hard that they'd like to sleep in STL on Subday night too.

Floppy said...

I can get a free couch if you would like me to get it.

Every Single STL Bike Polo Player said...

WE WANT YOU TO GET IT!!!

Stanislavich said...

STL,

We are playing in Denver Friday and driving straight to STL for your Sunday Pickups and would need to take off around 5 back home.

Can someone concur on the time and location for Sunday pick ups.

King said...

1 pm. Mt Pleasent.

I have lights, but not an extension cord that is long enough.

The Friday before The Battle for Middle West is Aprilween. Why would they schedule it so close to something so rad? (Not knowing about Aprilween is not an acceptable excuse)

Aprilween in Bloomington?

Stupid.

If Bloomington is smart, they'll reschedule.

Aprilween on a Friday night is too good to pass up.

Maureen Grady said...

big thanks to all who came out to play with me on that exceptionally chilly wednesday night! i hope my cousin, brian, is hooked and will continue to show up to play. best to you all. I LOVE STL Bike Polo!!!!!!!

Anonymous said...

Brian is a natural.

He should come out and play every week!

Polo-Velo-Bloomington said...

not sure what aprilween is, but fuckin austin changed the date of southcentral to the weekend of the battle... i and others were planning on playing SC so now we're questioning whether to move the date back a weekend.

how's missouri feel about that?

Anonymous said...

Broken bones won't heal in time for SC if the bench minor is pushed forward a week.

Anonymous said...

Not sure what south central is, but it obviously is not as good as aprilween. Aprilween is the reason to move the battle.

State vs. State Bench Minor dates didn't change. Aprilween isn't important in the eyes of Bloomington.

Thought? Boycott?

Rose said...

Francis and I were talking about it and we think we can probably do both. Bloomington's not that far, it sounds like you guys are playing in the afternoon, and we just need some people who are willing to be drivers in the morning. If there's an early registration, i'm sure we can work something out.

Ben said...

We should invite all of CoMo to Aprilween. They should stay in STL on Aprilween night, and then we'll drag ourselves to Bloomington on Saturday morning.
