Air Mail

So Bob did the most ridiculous thing on the court today. He’s always doing tricky stuff, scoop passes, wheel shots, we call him “Tricky Bobby” for a reason. But today, he did this one ridiculous move and it changed the way I see the game.

He was riding with the ball down the court, Jimmy was on his right, vying for the ball. Bob scooped it, tossed it up, way over Jimmy’s head, as Bob rode around him. It landed a few feet in front of Jimmy,  bounced once and Bob slammed it, out of the air, into the goal over Ryler’s wheel, top shelf front door.

incredulous

With the 2013 ruleset allowing goals off the shaft this begs the question: Is the next level of bike polo turning it into bike lacrosse? Are we going to see more lob and scoop passes and midair shots?

Time to start practicing my wheelie blocks.
