Wouldn't you be stock piling on bourbon once you get to Kentucky? I wasn't aware Indiana had a vibrant distilling culture.

Hmmmm...this isn't very far from Pittsburgh. Haven't been to Louisville yet. Holla!

...those days are over.

JUST KIDDING!

JUST KIDDING!

Coming in Saturday morning. Can I get a floor or couch for Sat. night? Oh, and a team to go with it?

playing with some St. Louis boys...yinz ready?

...those days are over.

JUST KIDDING!

which boys?!? i love it when STL shows up..

Kayce and his brother. I believe they are originally Philly boys and recently moved to St. Louis, or something. See yinz tonight.

...those days are over.

JUST KIDDING!

cool, i got an email saying two were coming, glad they got a third.

talk shit and burn bridges

Last I heard it was one full team and then the two that just got a third. But who knows, STL isn't the best at communicating their intentions unless it has to do with partying or some type of small motorized vehicles being jumped off of something. Anyway, there will definitely be some MO folks there.

One of the best, most atypical tourney's i've ever been to!

-Three different playing spots/courts
-Final played in pitch black.
-Not being sure who actually won.
-Epic arm wrestling match for MVP.
-Beer chugging contest for a set of chukkers.
-Jared realizing he is not a lumberjack.

Jimmy, Zach, and Louisville thanks for showing us a helluva time! Sorry bout the shitty parks dept and cops and all the headaches you guys had to deal with, but your efforts did not go unnoticed. Much respect for Louisville polo!

"-Jared realizing he is not a lumberjack."

He woke up this morning and asked "Does anyone know how to get sap off?"

This was crazy and ended up being awesome even if it had some stressed moments courtesy of the local fuzz.

Good times. Good times. As was the pickup in Lexington all afternoon Sunday.

Thank you Louisville for the most punk tournament ever. Thank you Lexington for having us for Sunday pick up. You all are wonderful people. I'm so grateful to be orbiting in this poloverse. See you all soon.

...those days are over.

JUST KIDDING!

your camera has been found! zach is mailing it back to you

Yes! Definitely the craziest, most unpredictable, most punk tournament I've ever been to! The element of surprise and danger was always lurking around the corner. Come to Kentucky to play polo and you're guaranteed to come away with an experience you'll never forget.
