Registration goodness should start around high noon tomorrow at the Allston court. (Click for map) All teams must be registered by Friday night, and paid up if possible since our fee collectors don’t work weekends… ok that’s not true because that’s me and I”ll be around… but still folks, make it easy on me! Teams will get a call from the organizers Friday night with info on what bracket they’re scheduled to be in on Saturday. AM bracket starts at 10:00AM – and showing up late will cost you valuable game time… and probably irk dah organizers.
$60 cash per team, gets you into the tournament, shirts, and other goodness.
Seattle, Vancouver, Sarasota, and Pensacola were all in town Thursday night for some straight up pickup at the Allston court.

Watch out for Nick at the ESPIs. He might drop his mallet, kick out his leg, turn your right eye’s vision black and white, apply minor burning, throw in some motion blur and layermask himself into sharpness. That’s how good this kid is on a bike.

Hopefully none of you other East Coasters got stuck with the thunderstorms that were in the neighborhood. According my soothsaying friend weather.com, there’s a half chance of beautiful refreshing water falling from the heavens during the upcoming ESPI tournament. Jav believes we’ll have light showers Saturday morning that will taper off by noon, giving us glorious polo conditions while keeping the basketball players off the pick-up court.

The ESPI4 is fast approaching… so feast your eyes on this goal… Think of a way to get a little ball through there.

Should you find yourself sitting on your polo bike awaiting the THREETWOONEGO call with this man staring you down from behind the cones across the court… well, good luck I say. Too bad luck won’t save you from the Spanish Fury of Javier. This image was captured in a rare moment of glee that overcame him as he realized that he was destined to rip apart every single ESPI team that he and his cronies-in-chaos Jamie and Howl will face in the tournament.

Stuff keeps coming in and I gotta keep hauling awkward boxes home on my polo bike.
Got the ESPI Sponsor (!!!) page all put together. Local shops and kind companies nationwide have been pouring all kinds of good into our prize pool. Two weeks two weeks two weeks two weeks two weeks…
