yo john - come down and we can play together and have a german bike polo reunion! except that it won't rain the whole time like peppermint polo/hiedelberg/every other german tournament...

Ha, you back then?

I need to check out travel options, I need to see how I can get there, I'm not sure I'll have a coupled bike yet, and I don't fancy the $150 AA fee.

I bet it rains now ;)

yup, i'm back stateside. and instead of moving to oakland i'm now moving to boston.

hopefully the travel plans work out because it'd be awesome to hang out and play polo again!

and i accept full responsibility if i've just jinxed the weather...

Yeah, turns out Porter Air is cheap, and only $25 for the bike.

I'm 90% in, unless fairs go up before I book. Just need a third.

I want to come to this tournament. Who will slay with me??

Oh Henry!

Hey guys, I'm not going to lobp, so I totaly missed the registration. But I'll be more than happy to come back to Boston and see some familiar faces.

So if any registrated team is looking for a sub let me know.

greg from paris.

.greg

Contact Addison. I may be wrong, but I think Johann is needs a third.

.

If anyone else is looking to play in this tournament my team's 3rd just bailed on us.

I think Ill be able to make this! Ill play some pickup if I dont get picked up but I would totally be stoked to play!

The catch: I am bike touring across North America so I wont have my own steed and the remains of my mallet will stay in Canada.

in case anyone is playing polo fairy, i swing a 43" mallet and prefer a rear V-brake on flat pedals cause im old school like that. But I'd rock whatever is available.

Like I said we are looking for a 3rd and you would be welcome to play with us. Might be hard to find a bike for you though. We don't have many players with extra bikes. I'll check around. Are you confident you will be in Boston for the tournament?

If you can get me a bike i can get to Boston in time!

Hey since i will be busting ass to get there can i request we enter the PM bracket?

i don't see why not

Thanks rad. Also, revphil what's your name? And if you need a place to stay you can crash with me. I might also have a couple others staying at my spot. I'm not sure. My cell # is 401-369-5581

Hey Phil, I was having a really hard time finding a bike for you and a third from our club came through for us. Sorry about that, at least you can take your time though coming over the Berkshires! You are still certainly welcome to stay with me and party with us.

the sound of my heart breaking!

thanks for trying to score me a whip, hope i get to see some of the action

Hey Boston, we're coming to town (excitedly!) Friday night but our housing guy still hasn't gotten back to us. Can someone give Tyler a gentle nudge for us please. My GPS, sleeping habits and the customs and immigration folks like some specificity of address.

my host's roommate has an extra bike. If there are any other alternate needs...

Like the Care Bears said, "sharing (bicycles, F/OSS, alcohol and Josh's Mom...) is caring"

if your in town, come to the party, we'll set you up someone if a team needs a third!

Where were you Jeff?! They had a few flake-outs and there was room for more teams! And you missed me do an awesome 360 flying pivot. Which really just means my skinny ass got taken out (cleanly) as someone merely rode by me. We did manage 3rd though. Boston bike polo were awesome. And seriously fun to take some heat from some of the big guns present.

:(((((((((((

that was some fun shit! thanks for the loaner bike, toby!

and to all for playing and watchign great games and drinking badass beer!

Like the Care Bears said, "sharing (bicycles, F/OSS, alcohol and Josh's Mom...) is caring"

so what were the final results? Who won?

You make the rules and I'll play the game.

Henry from Vancouver and Hamersly from Lex were playing with Tobi for most of the day but towards the end, Tobi got fed up with both of them for sucking after being dropped to the loser's bracket. He kicked them off the team.

Nate, Zack and I played the final against Tobi alone and he simultaneously screened us all out and 5-0'ed us. With sweatpants tucked into socks with marijuana leaves on them. When he was up 4 goals on us, he said "I'm going to 5-0 you S-O-Bs". Then he did.

It was embarrassing.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
fixcraft.net

Apparently if he untucks the sweatpants from the socks it causes a black hole which vortexes every ball he touches into his opponents' net, and also tears any challengers limb from limb thanks to the sheer cosmic force. Luckily nobody had to die on Sunday and Tobi kept his outfit in one piece.

haha Big sorry that my relaxed reffing let shit get so out of control. Didn't realize a trophy I made out of a broken lamp was worth fighting to death for..

haha, I thought it may have been a lamp. I'm not sure if anyone managed to pick up a single knee pad I may have dropped on Sunday. If you did, I would happily pay for postage and for your trouble a couple frosty drinks if you would mail post it for me.

A black g-form pad?

that would be the one

Thanks Boston bike polo & everybody for this nice weekend of polo.
Now I have some great stories to recount…
