Wed. Jan. 21st. 2009 "TWELVE"

Unbelievable. How can you have nine adults(one female) and 3 pre-teen players, 12 bikes, 12 sticks, 24 wheels, one lighted ball, a monty python start, and only knocked out one tooth!!! We are really good ! Sorry Tommy you had to be the one to suffer a broken anything. Teeth don't grow back. A direct mallet hit to the lower front teeth, and not draw blood, hurts. Bad ! And yet he played on. Thanks for the sacrifice.
Another new guy showed up. Tommy's friend Eric. Hope we didn't scare him off. It would be nice to see him again.
3 games played. Unfortunately, Jay The Mailman's team won all three. MiniMike and the Piranha were on again. I know Troy. It was the new bike.

Team#1: Jay, MT, Piranha#1, Piranha#2, MiniMike and me.
Team#2: Troy, Mr. and Mrs. Lyons(Tommy,Tracy) Adam, Jim and Eric

If you are reading this and live within a 25 mi. radius, you are missing out on some great cycling fun. Not to mention 20 yard wind sprints for a couple hours.
Next Wed. at 7pm sharp !

Pics: Poor Tommy !

Wednesday, Jan. 14th Unexpected Numbers

Way too much fun. The days emails indicated that 6 confirmed players would show up. No baby sitter, injured reserve, funerals, grounded, all things that keep the most hardcore from playing. In the parking lot though, people kept coming. It was great. 5 on 4. Three games, nine players !!
Again..It doesn't matter how we split, it usually is fairly even. Team #1 won the first. Team #2 won the second. Team #1 won the 3rd. All close games. And some amazing things too. Jacob(Piranha #1) stopped a goal by knocking down a high shot backwards ! Totally mind blowing. And ya got to love MT's front brake action. Makes for some great cycling acrobatics. Believe it or not , I had the only mechanical. Chain locked-up behind cassette. Thanks Jim, Mike and Tommy for you expertise.
Nice to see Marco, Matt and Mooky able to be there...Thanks !

Team #1: Jay, Jim, Marco and Me
Team #2: Mt, Tommy, Matt, Piranha #1 and Mooky
Next Wednesday at 7

Wednesday, Jan. 7th 2009 Polo and a Guest

A cool evening, 9 polo players, no repairs, no blood, an experienced guest player, and 3 games played. Even with a late start, we managed to get our school aged boys home by 10:30 or so. MT and MiniMike ruled the night. Skill and lucky rebound shots helped them to a 2 game to 1 win.

Marco showed up via the internet. An experienced guy originaly from Arizona, tried bike messenger in the east, polo on hard court, and grass polo elsewhere. Sounds like he is in transition back to Az. He was a welcome addition to our style of play. We all hope he comes back.

Team #1: MT, MiniMike, Piranha#2, and Tracy
Team#2: Jay, Marco, Tommy, Piranha#1, and Me
We are trying for another day game. Super fun. I will keep ya posted.
Missed: Troy, Jim, Adam, and Big Tim. Next time.
See you all Wed. the 14th at 7pm sharp.
