As evidenced in the above photo, not having wheel shields will lead to tacos. This is a friendly bit of news for all of those unfamiliar with bicycle polo. This post will enlighten you on all things polo here in Denver.
Before you read about polo later this week, a little bird named Sherri (with a shiny mvp metal around the neck made of bike chains, bike sprockets and bike brake lines) mentioned a boozer cruiser ride with denver cruisers on Weds at 7:00 at 26th and walnut. Casselman’s is the spot to meet. Grab a B-cycle for 5 bucks or polo bike it up.
Onto polo news:
Lots of players have gone out of town and will be going out of town. One bit of news about out of towners…We even have a lovely player from StL hanging out with the brickyard boys right now at the time of this blog, but she’s leaving thursday morning. (we may see her again in the friendlies next week, hopefully you’ll play some awesome polo with us Julia!)
Onto polo this week, Scooter’s schedule is the most reliable, and here it is…
Times/Days / 18th and Harlan
Thursday at 6:00PM (Scooter can’t be there until 6:30) so show up a little bit late, but show up!
Saturday at 4:00PM 18th and Harlan
Sunday in Boulder.
This is a good week to get some practice with our lefty, our sharpshooter (quazi), and some more practice for the next weekend with the friendly tournament in Colorado Springs.
Leave a comment about the times you’ll show up, for carpools, and for general heckling of the out of towners (including max)
Thanks for reading!
3 0 3… POLO!!!
p.s. We have the Colorado Cup after foiling Tall George’s (and his cronies) dastardly plans to keep it in the springs in order to drink from such a powerful container and emanate such polo competitiveness. Denver has now taken the cup a few times and if some brave Mallet Mafioso can keep the cup for once next weekend surely it will be the start of something legendary. that or we’ll have to go back to the drawing board against those dastardly plans.
p.s.s. People who are new/need practice for bike polo friendlies next weekend should be come on thursday, saturday and play on sunday in boulder. the brickyard boys are offering to save your soul with the good gospel of bike polo. they sure saved mine…
