Ryan's only allowed to play in my city after he apologizes for being a bitch.

Everyone else, please come and enjoy yourself. I'll probably be having a BBQ at my house, I'll smoke some pork butts, briskets and ribs.

I will need a break from below freezing temperatures count me in. Now i just need to find a team.

I can't wait to actually play you guys again! Better be ready!!!

Mo, I will have room for a few. Already promised one spot to Trevor from Calgary. We'll get everyone housed, or we'll all sleep together at our courts under the overpass with the bums.

i dunno....i think communal court sleeping arrangements sounds remarkably romantic! who's with me?!

You can have the spot next to the go-box full of chicken bones and human excrement.

(Seriously we found this at our court)

That sounds extra romantic.

Sleeping at the courts was remarkably fun for me. Had to fight the urge for 7am pickup.

For the lulz.

believe me, there's nothing romantic about spending the night next to the iberville projects. unless you consider being mugged and/or murdered romantic. it would make a great story though (if you survive). something to tell the grandkids.

I say I say I say,

so, do we get a free 10 piece chicken bucket when we register for the tournament??

"let 'em have it, with no problem"

I think it's important that all visitors try Brother's chicken on Common and Carondolet. Maybe that'll be lunch on Sunday.

as long as will does not leave his face on the ground on the way there

If you do go down I am looking for a team. Probly dont remember me I met you at seattle. Anyways let me know if you need a team.

Trevor Anderson

I need a sugar momma so I can work less and play polo more!!

This is going to be kick ass. Bike polo and N.O. well hell it cant get any better then that.

If anyone is looking for another player for a team let me know, I need a team. The chicken lunchin also sounds like a great plan.

Trevor

I need a sugar momma so I can work less and play polo more!!

Who's team is Cien on? $5 on them.

Now thats some pressure. How bout you Dustin, Evin and some of the rest of the MPLS crew come down and make it much more interesting. I got couches galore and vat of water to cool down in after a scortching November day on the court.

Oh, and guess who got a brake yesterday.

sponsor bars?

Haven't talked with anyone yet. The R, The Saint, Saturn, and Hi-Ho are the top of my list.

Ladies and Gentlemen... I present WILLIAM CURRY. Organizer extraordinaire, unscrupulous planner of tournaments located only a few feet from the most "active" public housing projects in the New Orleans metro area.

IN THE INTEREST OF FULL DISCLOSURE:

THIS TOURNAMENT IS FOR NON-PUSSIES ONLY.

YOU WILL PROBABLY GET FUCKED WITH, ROBBED, OR MURDERED.

On the bright side, if your second (or main) job just happens to be on the grind, or in the trap... you could potentially take time off "work", come here and still cover your travel expenses by working across the street between matches.

Maybe next year, for the survivors, we can plan it in Pigeon Town or Hollygrove.

Very good points! Thanks for your contribution! Anyone actually worried about this should know the parking area is fully fenced, and we're planning on having an off-duty officer present each day. But we were planning that long before the location was set due to some other potential foolishness.

i used to think that our interaction with bums under the overpass was interesting. i can't wait to see how a bunch of polo players interact with public housing tenants. it. will. be. awesome.

---------------------------
carve. smash. eat shit.

---------------------------
carve. smash. eat shit.

They can't even phase those projects when they're ON duty.

Way to ruin it for the people coming to the tournament who are just trying to make a living. How do you expect them to move them red tops with some off duty walking around?

Don't pretend you were going to have a cop there because I said I was going to smash on Ryan, it was strictly for insurance reasons even before his stupid ass rubbed me the wrong way.

yo we found flights from DC for 163 might be a few coming
SlAuTerHouSePoLoDC

SlAuTerHouSePoLoDC

you could ride with us back from DC to NOLA.... it's a long one, but it will def. be fun

take the week off and come with Me, Daniel, Mo, and Frazer down the eastern coast to NOLA...

great job on the flier, russell(?).

Wow,
These videos leave me speechless. I guess all I can say is way to reinforce stereotypes. Glad I live here and already know what to expect...

Are you joking? You can see Sissy Nobby live at bounce shows around town, that Franky and Johnny's commercial is just hilarious, Loose Marbles video(?), and kids dancing during a second line... These are things I love about my city.

we doing fiery cougs?

If everything gets worked out and we can find volunteers to help out, I think so. Going to talk to everyone the next time we play about that. You still remember how to play?

i think so... i rode my bike around the block today

I'd be up for that. But I'll respond next week with a commitment to be on the team. Just not sure if some Pcola people are trying to get their hands on me for a team. Though I'm torn, cause I loved the skill level I saw at the beach...and I know you weren't playing very hard either.

They're not into polo in Memphis, they're into coming to New Orleans and getting shit housed with us, seeing naked bitches on Bourbon Street, pulling out their junk and going to jail... and just generally wallowing in the filth that is New Orleans. Unless you can provide that, which you can't... because it's Columbia, Missouri... quit poaching and stay the fuck out of our thread. ya heard...

that's also why i'm thinking about coming to your tourney and staying for my birthday. all of that stuff you said and kicking your ass in polo.

-Bike Polo under the poverty line in Columbia, Missouri-

I've gone ahead and moderated, i.e. deleted, a bunch of comments in this general part of the thread. you can ask me why offline, but if you read/wrote them, i think you know why...

sorry, dad; too much glenn beck.

you, me, charlie, chris and nick should all ride together. we should rent a minivan (sierra hopefully)! jew need a team jewjew?

my other ride is a loveboard

Hey folks, got a question for all those interested in coming to the tourny? What is your ideal type of goal? Cones or netted Hockey style goal? If cones how high? If a netted goal what dimensions?

I have played on with hockey style goals in Minneapolis, and perfer them over cones do to their ability to (almost always) clearly show if a shot was indeed a goal.

Currently I see the cons for netted goals as follows:

There can be some issues with safety, and durability i.e. running into them, especially if the top bar is to high.

The change of play for goalies and other players alike, that occurs by not being able to ride through or position in front of the goal.

And of course dealing with the inevitable leaning on the goal its self. Which would probably be an automatic footdown, unless forced into the goal frame.

Feedback is appreciated, because were going to build a pair for N.O. Polo pick up, and would like to know if we should build another for use in the upcoming tournament.

ha. maybe i'll spectate this tournament.

Four will pull your sponsorship. We're on a team dude.

Here's the location for the courts. Thanks to Cien, we have a wood supplier and should have two courts with 2' high plyboard walls.

do you have court dimensions yet?
-Bike Polo under the poverty line in Columbia, Missouri-

DON'T TELL HIM, WILL!

Hey, pcola or anybody, one of the mobile teams needs a third. Anybody still looking for a team is welcome.

Tommy, I think you were my 1 from Savanna that I have marked on the housing doc. Are you not coming?

To everyone else thinking of coming who hasn't worked out housing yet: there are at least 11 spots available now, and we're trying to get others on board to put you guys up. Don't forget the hostel is supposedly very nice, cheap and really close to everything.

Alot of us will be building boards Friday evening. We're having Goldsprints and pre-registration Friday at Handsome Willy's, 218 S. Robertson. Drink specials at 10, sprints at 11. This bar is two blocks from the court and opening early both Saturday and Sunday for us to use their restrooms and buy discounted beer and liquor.

Saturday we're supposed to be at the AllWays Lounge/Marigny Theatre where there'll be local bands playing. But I may be mistaken. Their website only shows naked karaoke scheduled for the 22nd. Will keep yall posted.

i heard you get a free shot if you get naked (or almost naked) at naked karaoke.

Travis from B.R. is Mikey and my third.

The rest will get figured out at Polo on Wednesday. Regardless if you feel like playing. Make sure you come out. Were going to start at 6.

Poor Jeff.

jeff we have replaced you with Messpriotti

YIP!

Mobile really needs a third player for one of our teams. Really bad. Come play with us. We'll give you beer or something.

I'm coming down with kids from COMO. I don't have a team, was just making a post about it... how about me!? I haven't been playing long but can hold my own. I don't expect to do much other than have a kick ass time and learn as much as I can and pedal hard every single game. Well... that and also getting robbed/murdered.

Athleticism and intensity are two things I don't lack. It's just the skills part I'm working on.

Would love to hop in with any team looking for someone. Let me know, guys!

Boner Jamz needs a third, and I love all COMO kids.

count me in if you still need a third.
julia from (co)MO

we don't serve women here. bring your own.

rookie of the year! somebody snatch him up and learn him well.

X2 on that shit. Nick is definitely a great rookie. Kid's learning about 10 times faster than I did at his polo age.

Hey, Nick K., sounds like you're pretty rad. We still need a third, and neither of us are all that great either, so I hope you don't mind getting your ass kicked by the NOLA crazies. We'd be glad to have you, though. I'm Jacques, my teammate is Simon, team name is the Jacquestraps. We'll be looking forward to meeting you.

paul,
as of right now i'm playing with will and trevor from calgary.

And we plan on winning!!

For a local tourney? You can do 5-6! Don't sell yourself short.

I'll consider this tournament a complete failure if nobody goes to jail or gets alcohol poisoning.

where is tommy when you need him

oh yea. baltimore.

YIP!

damn son, i heard you tryin to blow up my spot.

my attempt to gather a female team to represent BROLO: failed.
sad to say that it looks like LA wont have any ladies on the court.

well now you are a free agent and there are some ladies looking for a team atleast one from pcola and one or two from savanaha. we will hook it up for ya!

What? Tuba and Dave were busy?

BOO YAH!

i'm glad to see so many people are coming to NOLA for this tournament and the bike bash! it's nice to see too that some people have the idea that they are going to get robbed and murdered while they are here. really...

ive hired daniel as a gaurdian

YIP!

yeah come play in mobile, u will get robbed. ive been out of the e-loop 4 a sec, paul, r u ready to kick ass? i got a new bike and my hairs cut and i mite have HPV so i aint got nothin to lose baby.

cien n will, sorry i couldnt help out sunday, i am trying to get over by late afternoon friday. do ya'll need any hockey balls? we got a store over here. jeff ur a pussy, i bet ur foot works well enough to drop off classic combos, so no excuse

frazer, you bringing the scotch?

its not sespi yet, you'll have to wait til spring rush to join mah fraternity

yo! glad you're alright, besides the genital warts. i heard you flaked on the midwests and was wondering if you were alive. bring balls because i'm not sure how many good ones we have between all of us. we need a team name (and i'm not sure how b.o.t.9.n.s. will go down since will is making me cover up goatse, but that'll be a backup if anything). let me know when you're in. we should practice together at least once before we play for real. hollerrr!

are you serious about will having you cover up goatse? wtf? paul, you should make a second one and have it on your other wheel. i mean the man is only showing us a lesser seen part of himself.

Come on now. I asked you nicely and gave some supporting arguments. You can do whatever you want brah.

haha, i don't care about censoring the goatse. i'll just have to spread my cheeks.

I'm just checking, Will... are people going to be allowed to have fun this weekend?

If no fun is going to be allowed I really think we should have added that to the rules.

I'm trying as hard as I can. If anyone does have fun, it won't be on account of me.

Tap out's required when:

- Any player appears to be having fun.

Ejection From Play:

- If a player is repeatedly reprimanded for having fun, he/she may be ejected from the game at the sole discretion of Will Curry. If an ejection occurs there WILL BE NO SUBSTITUTION ALLOWED FOR THE EJECTED PLAYER for remainder of that game. If a player is ejected twice for having fun, it will result in ejection from the tournament.

yeah, im fine now, long crappy story, and i owe the atx'rs big time. if u guys r reading this, i got ur turney fees covered for nola and as many beers as u can guilt me into at the bar. i'll try n call everyone tomorrow, jeff gave me robs # and i think i have mo's in an email somewhere.

you should come over and play at the beach friday morning and start your buttering up to austin before going to nola! think we are going to leave from the beach at like 2pm to nola and try to get out to da beach around 11ish!!!

OK thread closed because it's approaching the point where it explodes.
