Silent Fight

December 23, 2014

Silent fight, nobody’s right
The ref is a joke, His face I will poke
My mallet was not even in that guy’s face
My foot never went down, you ignorant waste

I’m going to play how I waa-aaaant
I’ll play how-ev-er I waaaant

Silent fight, fists ball tight,
I won’t say a word, but I never heard
the whistle blaring into my ear,
You must be crazy, I wasn’t even near

I’m going to play how I waa-aaaant
I’ll play how-ev-er I waaaant

I know I’m right, Sleep fine tonight
Your tourney is dry? Go ahead and try
I’ll drink like a fish and beat you this game
Call you a name and then wheel dick a-gain

I’m going to play how I waa-aaaant
I’ll play how-ev-er I waaaant

Maybe It’s Not About More Big Tourneys

December 18, 2014

For the past year or so, there has existed a significant push towards having bigger, better, higher budgeted tourneys in bike polo. It makes some sense, this drive to move away from poor courts, iffy organizing, and what not. To be honest, I think this kind of shift is a natural progression of the sport (as it develops, so too do the tourneys we put on. It’s not brain rockets), but I wonder about something else: maybe the answer to growing the sport isn’t bigger, better tourneys. Maybe it’s smaller tourneys that happen more often.

First, let’s establish what we’re aiming for. In my case, growing the sport means having more people playing. That’s it. I’m not talking about getting people to watch the thing, nor am I talking about getting sponsors lined up. I’m talking about sheer number of bike polo players on the courts.

Using that as my measurement for success, I can begin to make the argument that having 5 little, regional (read: within 2 hours of where you live) tourneys might be a better bet than having 1 big regional (read: in your NAH Region) tourney, or even just 2 larger tourneys that have nothing to do with qualifying or the NAH.
