I love Black Star Bags, and it’s not just because my teammate works there. I love how the owner, Dave Stoops, stays true to his roots when guiding the future of the company. He is a former messenger and longtime hardcourt bike polo player, and he makes products to help advance the bags of the messengers and bike polo players of tomorrow.
Now that the Ladies Army 7 dates and location are finalized, it seems like a lot of the polo community is coming together to make sure it goes off without a hitch. One such group is the Davis Bike Polo Club; to help Ladies Army raise some funds, they are selling beautiful hardcourt bike polo T-shirt (as seen above). They have a goal is selling 100 shirts, but let’s help them blow that goal out of the water. Everyone order one! Find more info on how to order HERE!
If you live in the United States of America (or any other dumb country that uses month/day/year) then today is 3/21, otherwise known as international bike polo day (I just made that up, but maybe it’ll stick). At 3-2-1 Polo! we wanted to celebrate 3/21 in a huge way, so TODAY ONLY Enforcer framesets will cost you only $321 +shipping. What better time than now to get a brand new frame for the season!
We have limited supply so orders will be taken on a first come first served bases. At the time of this post going live, this is what we have left in stop

If you’re still on the hunt for a slay-tastic team to take to Ladies Army 7, then we have an important resource for you!

If you would classify yourself as a loose cannon, then head to their sign up HERE!

I’ve said it enough times (both as a way of being self-aware, and also as a way of being self-deprecating), but I’m a much better talker than I am a…uh…walker, I guess? Though we’re on bikes so I don’t know if that works, really. Also, it makes me sound like a zombie. Okay, hold on.
I’m much better at discussing the game than I am playing it. Is that clearer for everyone? Good, good.
But I’m not the worst player, either. I like to think that I can at least hold my own if need be against a fair amount of players. Not the best, of course—and maybe not even the very good or good, but the middle pack folks. I’d have a good show of it.
And that’s fine by me. Point in fact, I think it’s great.
Point in fact I’ve always been a middle-grade player in any sport I’ve taken part in. When I wrestled (which is a horrible thing nobody should ever let their children or nieces/nephews do), I was…well now that I think of it, I was straight up horrible at that.
When I played lacrosse I was alright. I was on the JV squad and managed to not totally ruin everything I did, but I didn’t do particularly great things, either.
