Wed. June 10th 2009 Unbelievable Weather for Bike Polo

Yes, 80 degrees with a slight breeze. It was one of the best polo games ever. Oh, ummm, 4 games that is. At the end of the third game, it was like unison voices " ONE MORE ". I'll admit, my ass was dragging big time, two points into "IT". Tommy showed up just in time and releived me of my gear, sweaty helmet, bike and mallet. He has been re-habin a injured neck and hasn't played for some time. It was great.

Troy's friend Glen, showed up for the first time( FNG) and after a short rules and safety lecture, he proceeds to score two goals for the evening. Super job ! I really hope he comes back.

Grass Bike Polo is really different from hardcourt polo. But the two should get together. We would be impressed and delighted to have AzHardcourtBikePolo join in the fun.

Team#1: Mailman Jay, Mike T., Piranha#1(Jacob) and Me (with a late sub Tommy)
Team#2: Tracy, Troy, Adam, Piranha#2, and Glen

No matter how we split teams, it works out. Picks and defense were the highlight tonight. No injuries, no broken bikes, although Jay had a couple spokes broken by that badman Troy.

Next time Wed, June 17th, at 7pm with a lighted ball and great fun
