polo is three per side, so you would have a full replacement after we shame the first string to death in the first game many of us ride geared too so trackstand chugging would probably be too easy for you.

I had a thought of a bike Tug-Of-War...... And how many beers you can chug while one hand track standing... but as I said the games are your call, but please remember we are at most 6 strong.
"you will lose, but will be well feed" INDEED!

and since you started to think about games, we've been thinking about the look on people's faces if we were to decend on the "RIO" off 270
EmmW would love this!

haha, I think this should be billed as "The Battle Of 270" The burrito bandits are stoked, I started informing them tonight. we may have a mountain bike or two in our mists, maybe something for them?

figure out some dates and I'll see what my lads think.

thanks for the hot picture of me on my ass, tink. thanks alot. too bad these photos still don't explain the four bruises on my left shoulder blade... but we'll take these as the explaination for the legs-covered-in-bruises.

c'mon pirates, practise makes perfect! when's the next match? can we do like 9pm thursdays or something?

Indeed,polo was much fun. Big props to Poopn for the food and hospitality. (BTW,did you pass me going up Mass Ave when you were taking the girls home? Thought that looked like your rig with a bike on the back.)

Big up to Chimbly,for playing on a fixie and giving the boys what for.

Some highlights: L nimbly avoiding a faceplant when bumping into the fountain.
EM nimbly avoiding a faceplant while trying to coast on her Pista.
Tink and Spud's after collision ballet.

Suggestion for next time: we need to make the ball more visible. I've got a can of florescent orange spray paint and a roll of glow-in-the-dark tape;whichever y'all think would work best. The mallets were spot-on;German engineering at it's best.

Oh,and I wasn't a bit sore in the am. Guess that's cause I didn't fall down.

So is anyone showing up early, get some practice in, find some snacks and drinks? I'll probably head in and find some food earlier than 8...

If it's raining,I'm going to wimp out. I came down with something Mon night and it's hard enough kicking it while commuting in the damp.

And where's the representin'?

emilymildew and chimbleysweep are organizing a scavenger hunt (see, the clues hide, and you have to seek them. get it?)

Teams of three or four, $5/person entry, winning team takes all.

What will you be finding? Clues in places, clues from your brain. Points awarded for costumes (the more outrageous the better).
