Stupor Bowl 13 Garage Polo

Last Friday night after the Stupor Bowl 13 pre-registration party at the Nomad, the polo crew, including a number of our friends from Milwaukee, cruised over to the garage and got in some late-night polo on a dark and slippery court. Everyone went down at some point on the slush that was just above the freezing point in the out-of-bounds zone. That said, it was a lot of fun until the ultra-passive transit employee sort of told us to leave, kind of. Well enough, I thought, as it was 2 a.m. and I had to get ready to race. If you’re interested, visit my blargh for a race recap and photos.

Ebbin Attacks!

Greif Masters Tournament

GreifMasters 2010 Bikepolo from Uolmo on Vimeo.

This past weekend while Minneapolis was racing Stupor Bowl 13, Germany was putting on an epic tournament. Just look at those shirts!

Uolmo has made some nice videos in the past and this is no exception. Check out his video detailing his trip from Geneva to Karlsruhe, Germany with his polo team L’equipe The Iron Ponies. As well as being a great editor and cameraman Uolmo, from what I hear, is also one hell of a polo player.
