Sunday I had a date with destiny.
I’ve been intrigued with bike polo for a long time now…but it wasn’t until Sunday that I actually gave it a try. Wow. What an awesome game. I got to play with some masters of the sport who I now have extreme respect for.
Bike polo is a combination of every little piece of biking and sports skill I’ve picked up since I was like 6 years old. Positioning, timing, balance, vision, fitness, finesse…it all comes together in a beautiful way. Even though if I said the word beautiful around some of the regulars, I’d get a can of PBR thrown at my face.
The best moment of the day came on the final goal of my first-ever game. It was a fast break and I received the puck, tapped in the goal, and proceeded to crash through the cones and into the fence. Blood was spilled. I was baptized. It was good
