Latest compilation of on-court bike polo footage, this time from the sweet asphalt of The Pit in NYC.  Mostly I found frames within the footage that made for semi-interesting photos, then let’em play for a couple of seconds to show … what happens after photographs I guess.

Polo photos + Photoshop = …  pictures of Adam it seems.  If you want to talk about the parallels between polo and hockey, Adam’s your man.  If you don’t take well to criticism on the court, Adam’s not your man.

New York has a damned sweet court, somewhat appropriately named The Pit.  Maybe if they sunk the whole thing down 100 ft and daylight only hit the asphalt at high noon it’d be a real pit, but alas… whatever.  I think a  lot of visitors and even few of the regulars ever look up when they’re there.  The whole court is surrounded by these great towering trees that have probably been there since the whole place was built.

Photoshopping the Pit

More pictures from The Pit in NYC.  Also purchased plane tickets to go to the COG Invitational tournament in Milwaukee June 5-7.  Gonna be huge.  Sub $200 plane tickets = too tempting to pass up.  Players from closest to farthest Johnny Adam Quin Paul.  To anyone who actually knows what they’re doing in photoshop, I sincerely apologize for the below abomination.

Jav and I did a lot today.  Woke up early, drove for 4 hours, played polo in NEW YORK CITY for 6 hours, and then drove for four hours.  I shot a ton of footage similar to the video featured in the previous post (the boston bike polo one) of the yankees doin the polopolo.

Largest hardcourt game … ever

It is my belief that the largest game of hardcourt bike polo ever played occured at el Mayhem.  Not once, but twice.  The first being a Saturday game involving a Boston team in which 10 or so other Boston players stormed the court in an attempt to glorify all things Boston. Boston Boston Boston.  That grande ‘ol party was eclipsed by a game on Sunday, pictured below.

I think the Boston game went the entire 10 minutes with only one ball in play, with the majority of the players actually trying to score with it (…well, for the first minute or two).
