Legit Bike Polo

Well, we were three games away from winning it.  Despite the fact that that all of those games were more/less unwinnable by our fairly good team.  We, The Best Rappers Alive (Jav, Cole and myself) won 5, lost 2, and tied 1 in the round robin part of the tourny (18 teams split into two brackets of 9, in which all the teams played eachother).  The top 4 teams of each bracket got paired up inversely against the other bracket’s teams for a quick single elimination run.

We lost 5-2 or something against Sergeant Chombo’s Lonely Heart Band (Chombo, Brendan and Shaun I think) to tie for 5-8th place.

I shot about 2 hours of footage, including most of the top 8 games.  It’ll be some time before that gets up, but on the brighter side of polo, I’m meeting with the Northeastern University TV crew tonight, and will hopefully soon have access to a mac g5 and finalcut pro.

Thanks to joyride1x1 (flickr) for the great b&w pictures.  I think it’s Sean? (Can’t quite tell from the flickr profile pic, but he loves the surly singlespeed mtb)

Thanks for coming down, it was so nice to play with you guys. Results are posted on http://www.slapdickpolo.com. I don’t think joyride1x1 is Sean, I think he is a DC resident that wasn’t playing. I will try to find out exactly who he is though.

Once again, thank you, and I look forward to seeing your footage (except the Ali vs. Boston match that I taped, I think I missed most of the game anyway)
