Had to break out the Shimano shoes yesterday for the first time since early, early Spring. The sandals have been doing fine, but the nippy mornings bite the toes a bit on the ride into work. Adding layers in the morning and shedding them on the ride home.
The Pub Crawl is this weekend. Look out, Dundee... Lumpy - is your goathead crew down for the shenanigans?
Missed Polo last Sunday, but I'll be back at it this weekend. Don't want to get out of form. I'm working on getting some more folks out there. As with everyone... people never have a shortage of "busy" & "excuses".
Todd Gila Mr1spd Steelbitch... will you ever come back to polo? Steel Sally - I'm counting on you in November.

2nd batch wasn't too shabby... you've read the Chech Pilsner reviews here.
On to the next batch. Not a fan of October-fest-ish beers, and not particularly fond of winter brews, I'm trying an IPA. I'm a bit concerned about my initial specific gravity (1.034), and hope it doesn't end up being too thin. Like a good little homebrewer, I followed the directions, though I don't really like using dextrose (of which I used 300g versus the 500g of dry light malt). I really love the smell of my house after brewing. The primary fermenter is bubbling away right now. I'll probably take the brew off the yeast and finish it in a secondary fermenter sometime this weekend. Hope to bring some beers out to Fort Collins with me next month.
3 cheers for homebrew beers.

Ok, I'm not as techno-savvy as MOD, so I'll just link to his sweet ass video of Polo on Sunday. I even jacked that photo from his site. What's that? Why, yes, that's me scoring the backwards off-angle goal with the sweet assist from T-Bone at about the 3:30 mark.
See the video here.
Remember - Polo season is ON. We meet Sundays at 1pm at Swanson Park. Show up. I'll bring Cowbell's polo bike as a loaner, and we've got plenty of mallets. Just bring yourself, and some half-time beverages.
