well i hope i don't get sent to the can in los marcostan!

cause i'm gonna get as drunk as hell in los marcostan!

I need to steal the plan to get to los marcostan!

VIVA LOS MARCOS

viva boys, viva.

los marcos for presidentistan! 

this is awesome, Los Marcos broke the website!!! i fixed it, kind of.  i'll make videos work for real soon.

YES. VIVAVIVAVIVAVIVAVIVAVIVAVIVAVIVA 

this is like the bonnaroo of bike polo right?

what's a bonnarroo? if it means ridiculous polo party gangbang then pretty much yes.

of all the competitions, this one is probably the most laid back, but by no means is this the easiest one to win. you will be challenged in many complicated and stupid ways. and you'll be having fun the whole time.

...for anyone who hasn't seen it yet, check this link for a quick look-see:

"Thieving, cheating, racing, fighting, drinking, lies and bike polo."

All are encouraged to attend. Be as absurd and creative as you wanna be.

I'd love to come for this.

This just in. There will be a film night presented by Bike Shorts on Sunday the 5th, following Los Marcos Madness. This will be semi-private, for Los Marcos Madness attendees only. You are welcome to submit your own films for screening. They don't have to be about polo. They don't even really need to be *about* bikes.

Every time I see that video the metal gets even more metal.

I'll be living in Chicago by then, maybe I can catch a bus cheaper than from FL.

I am fucking so stoked on this tournament Im getting a Zentai suit just for the occasion! the bonaroo comment was just screwing around fuck that shit. you guys are my favorite team ever.

do you get extra points if you play with a cricket bat and ride a mini bike?

I believe a few points have already been given out for this tournament. But I'll be goddamned if I can remember who I was supposed to give them to. It's possible that my memory might be jogged, or I might find the notebook where I jotted that down, or that I'll just give them to someone else. Anything's possible.

And yes, it's quite possible that you'll get extra points for cricket bats and minibikes. As long as you bribe the judges.

Last year Ethan got beat down by a girl. Are you girl enough to break Ethan's glasses?

you've already given me 134.5 points for general excellence

In order to get to the final you'll have to battle ninjas in the goals, babies heads getting knocked off, the tap out cone getting lifted like a pinata when you want to hit it, etc.

but the final is straight up polo (...it was last year at least)

What type of extravagant thing would it take to convince the los marcostans to allow mini bikes to do a 360 degree tapout instead of the side tapout.

oh i don't know, a case of pepsi and a dime of black hash?

Pepsi is easy how about green eggs and ham instead of the hash I don't eat meat.

EVEARYONE ON "WORLD CHAMPION" TEAM OTAWOA HAS ALREADY WON POINTS AT LOS MARCOS MADNESS FOR AUCTIONING THEYSELF OUT FOR MERCENARY WORK BEFOUR TORNAMENT ENEV BEGIN. SOMETHING LIKE 100 POINT. EACH. THEY STILL NOT IN LEAF FOR POINT YET THOUGH. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH VIVA LOS MARCOS!!!!!!!

SADDLEANS CAN BUY PEPSI AND BEAF JERKY AND SPARKS AS MUCH AS THEY WANT FOR LOS MARCOS AND MAYBE LOS MARCOS TURN AWAY WHEN THEY CIRKLE OUT INSTEAD OF TAP OUT BUT HOW ARE YOU GOING TO HIT PI˜NATA IF YOU DON'T TAP OUT? ASK YOUSELF THAT.

Los Marcos Madness Housing:

If you're going to come to Los Marcos Madness and need a place to crash, Quinn is our housing coordinator. She rocks at this kind of stuff. New Yorkers, if you've got space to put people up, let her know so she can coordinate bodies with spaces

QUINN: quinnsham@aol.com 4oh1.Two43.ThreeThree2Three

"There is no pre-registration in Los Marcostan", but if you and your cities are coming, it *would* help if we knew a bit in advance, so we can plan for the right amount of teams.

PS: The sponsors for this thing are rolling in awesomely. Ben's Cycle, Trackstar, Kryptonite, Bern Helmets, Bagjack, Fabric Horse, Swobo, Mishka, Laek House, Bike Shorts, Halston...It's gonna be awesome.

sleep on the streets in los marcostan!

So Patrick and I set up the housing for Slapdick Fall Open, and I have to say, can we just borrow Quinn for our next tournament? She is seriously awesome at this. Everybody should get in touch with her as soon as they can, it makes the whole process a lot easier.

Also, I am sad I won't be at LOS MARCOS. I can't wait for February to play you all down in Florida.

Yes, Quinn is seriously awesome at it. She's pretty goddamn invaluable up here.

Ryan, I'm taking away points from everyone from DC because you're not coming. Nice work.

PS: Thanks again for a solid, smooth, awesome tournament that had chocolate covered bacon at one point.

Just to clarify, which coast does Chicago play for again?

chicagobikepolo.com

It depends on how many west-coasters show up. You'll probably be a west-coaster in the epic match thing.

Hey, if anyone reads this in time, I'd also like to add that the 2ND ANNUAL LOS MARCOS MIXTAPE COMPETITION is still on this year, tho its pretty much been eclipsed by many other features from this upcoming weekend. A few people did get points for this last year.

But I encourage yall to mix something together and bring it! Last year we had a couple cool mixes from people and we got to listen to a few before they got swiped.

We'll even try to play them during the matches if equipment etc. allows...oh it doesnt have to be a tape either, CDs are just fine.

thanks

Hi Everybody

LOS MARCOS is on a plane back to their homeland afterparty but they asked me to translate & write this:

"LOS MARCOS wants to thank everybody for their tremendous show of support this weekend: locals, out-of-towners (but no longer strangers), sponsors, spectators and volunteers. We are pleased with the players who brought straight game to the court, and proud of the teams who truly got into the spirit of this tournament. Your achievements and antics will long be spoken of in the Great Halls of LOS MARCOS.

¡VLM! ¡VLM! ¡VLM!

p.s. please tag you flick photos with LOSMARCOS or something so we can find and show our people back home how norte america play they pollo game.
¡VLM AGAIN!"

...I had a great time people. Had plenty of good moments from this weekend but one of my faves was watching that EAST COAST / WEST COAST game. Thanks adam.

Hope to see you all again soon.
