Friday Cheese: Step Your Game Up

1 - Published August 27, 2010 by in The Life

It’s Friday and one of the last weekends of summer.  What better time to take your game to another level and nothing works the hand eye coordination skillz like a little lax while riding a thousand pound animal. Get to know polocrosse:

Polocrosse is an international sport…started as a training exercise for learning horse riders during off-seasons, when they weren’t working on their more vigorous routines. Think of it as Victorian cross-training.

Wikipedia makes it sound boring but put Rabil on a horse and I bet he shoots 211 mph a’la the Old Spice man:

Polocrosse… is played outside, on a field (the pitch), on horseback. Each rider uses a cane stick to which is attached a racquet head with a loose, thread net, in which the ball is carried. The ball is made of sponge rubber and is approximately four inches across. The objective is to score goals by throwing the ball between the opposing team’s goal posts.

Lax equipment ain’t cheap but it’s nothing compared to a training tool of the equestrian variety. Do like our buddy Marcus says:

Step your game up.
