New polo kit.

Fellow Elk (east london knight) Ali has got a bit of a cold. So for our fixture this week against the Dinos wore new polo attire!

Tomasito and B are back…

… and what they bring with is a 10am start to polo this Saturday at Downham

Breakfast polo is where its at.

Dapper Dan and his broken thumb…

We haven’t had any major injuries for a while. Dan came off his bike this week from a slippy drain cover at Mitchitson Road polo court during throwins…

A few quotes from the polo forum to get a flavour of what actually happened:

from me:

found myself just editing the League blog…. and news just in from Dr Chukk…

Quote:“chukker_norris Dapper Dan just broke his hand, bone popping out of skin. #bikepolo #wet#hardcourt. black rebel down. #lbpl”

from Golden wheel:

“He slipped out on a muddy drain cover at mitch. Xd up bars and went down hard. We had to call for an ambulance. Vidal waited with him, but only so he could get on the gas! Dan was cool as could be.”

from Dapper:

“Cheers everybody, and a massive thank you to everyone who helped me out last night. You are all lovely people.
The thumb is broken, got a cast on it and an appointment at the fracture clinic this morning. Bummer.
Disappointingly didn’t get any gas in the ambulance as he couldn’t find some kind of attachment for the canister, “good job you’re not in screaming agony” he quipped. Yes, I though, good job. I did get my heart rate tested which was in the 40′s which had them worried but then they just figured I was really fit, like some kind of superhero.”


“Just got back from the hospital where the nice men tied surgical tape round the end of my thumb to make a strap which one of the pulled full-on hard outwards along the length of my thumb whilst the other pushed it sideways into place, properly mauling it in. Nice. Seems to have done the job though. Thank Jesus for local anesthetic.”

From Jesus:

“It’s the least I could do for such a fine chap.”

Heal up Dan.

First Fixtures of the Londons League 09/10

Yesterday Gabes and Mark posted the fixtures on the The London Bike Polo League website and started the fixtures/results thread on the  LFGSS forum. We did this last season, it was a way of finding out the fixtures, organising when teams can meet to play and most importantly trying to psych out the other team (shit taking/sledging).

Interesting about the league…

Players and teams- this is taken from the league website:

This season has 5 more teams than last, but surprisingly only three teams that played in the last season are back with their original line up (BAD, Los Coños, and BRBPC). Instead, most teams have chosen to reshuffle and have a go with new members (although it wasn’t always a choice). What is more, almost half of all players in this season’s league are westies rookies.

My tip for teams to look out for this season would be in no particular order:

Zombie United, Rotten Apples, Malice In pololand (not sure about the name Matt), Cosmic³, SLAP, Three beards, one cup and Whats our name again (my team;))

I am, and I think I can speak for those who are in the League. Am really excited about this season and can’t wait for play to start…

321 polo!!!!!

11.09.09 – Stolen Trophy

From Todd of Cosmic:

At the Northgate pub on Southgate Rd, an empty place on the top shelf remains where one of polos greatest polo prizes used to perch.

Who could’ve done such a thing?

Rumors are circulating within the London polo community and it seems another player is responsible!!!!

This could break friendships and divide communities.

If the trophy is not returned within 20 days, a reward will be issued for the wheels and mallet of the person responsible.

Cosmic have set about creating a curse which will cause great damage.
Do not make eye contact with the trophy.

The gods are not happy.

The thief has put a price tag on ebay

Either way i hope the trophy and the team are reunited.
