If you’re like me, then chances are that the first Fixgrip you tried to install blew a whole out the side. And then the second went on, but it took a lot of curing and elbow grease until it finally seceded to your threats of killings its whole family.
It’s hard to believe that it’s already been a week since the start of the 2014 North American Hardcourt Bike Polo Championship. It feels like just yesterday Drew Thomas, Michael Fletcher, and I were going stir crazy at the Denver International Airport during our 4 hour layover. Alas, the fun has passed and we are stuck at home until the next tournament. I’m sure I’m not the only one who feels this way, so I’d like to help those who are the in same position as me.
Here are three hardcourt bike polo videos to help you get by until the next time you hit the court!
This short video by Mr. Do gives us a small taste of the excellent videos that are going to be coming from him of the North American Hardcourt Bike Polo Championships in the coming weeks. Not only does it do that, it gives us the chance to analyze the hit that Joey Halvorsen of The Beavers laid on Pete Abram of Portland United. It is very obvious that the hit from Brian Dillman on Pete, just prior to Joey’s hit, is a foul, but what do you think about Joey’s hit?
Some people say Joey was trying to dodge Pete to the best of his abilities as he played the ball and accidentally hit him causing Pete to do a soccer style flop trying to draw a penalty, while others feel that Joey maliciously hit Pete causing him to hit the ground and have what a medic on the scene diagnosed as whiplash.
You be the judge, is it a flop or a foul?
