I was hoping the ball joint would become an illegal move. But, i tend to be one of the those pragmatic types and i figured it would be in my interest to use what resources i have to improve my game. I see a lot of potential for where this is going so i have come up with a few improvements to my mallet in order to use the Ball Joint in ways that will give me more of an advantage. Jon K. from Jonny Cycles helped me design and build this mallet. We are ordering some titanium tubes for the final version.

this was shot on the morning of the MWBPC IV a couple weeks ago. nice camera work, funny narration that could only be done by a local news sports crew .... a couple good clips of the videos of some of the morning games.

Elephant Polo

I thought i would follow up kevin's blog post on car polo with another polo variation. I bet we could take these guys on bikes but i might not want to play bike to elephant contact.
