In case you missed the televised screening of the Somebody’s Gotta Do It episode where Mike Rowe plays hardcourt bike polo, Michael Hersman of Decatur Bike Polo recorded and posted the video online. Enjoy it and share it with your friends, celebrities have a way of making things look cool, so maybe that will work for hardcourt bike polo too!

Two weeks ago we announced that the legendary Mike Rowe would be playing bike polo on his CNN show called Somebody’s Gotta Do It. Due to protests in Baltimore, CNN decided to pull the show and reschedule it for another date. That new date is TONIGHT, May 14th at 9pm (again, be sure to check your local listings for time confirmation). Tune in and show that people want to watch hardcourt bike polo on TV!
Here on the west coast, few of these prototype Arena Bike Polo heads have been popping up at the fun tournaments. In a way they a throw back to the days of Eighthinch and Rad Caps, but with a lightweight modern twist. The carbon cap is attached to the UHMW head using small screws. I’m not sure when, let alone IF, these will go onto the market, but I love bike hardcourt bike polo innovation so I had to share!
