only in new york... bike polo
i was walking around in LES (new york's Lower East Side) today with carrie, and encountered the coolest urbanized version of a sport i'd ever seen. men & women on bicycles playing polo with augmented metal canes... like the ones that visually impaired people use -- they affixed a metal piece to the end of it, as a "mallet" - and used a tennis ball. cones were set up as goals. gotta love the ingenuity!
