Water Polo: December 29, 2007

What a crew -- they're still smiling, (at least most of them are!), after nearly 60 minutes of non-stop water polo in the deep end of Norton Pool. Thanks again to "Captain" Bob, (that's him clutching the ball and the edge of the pool), for setting up another annual HUMS Water Polo Event -- a great way to say goodbye to 2007 and hello to 2008.

Water Polo -- it's not as easy as it looks -- especially if you're trying to defend the goal against Harry. Click the Video Link below to see!

"I need air, I need air, I need air.." said Bill. Or, is it his new book, "How I learned To Stop Playing And Just Hang On The Side!"

He swam thataway!

Bob demonstrates the new semi-legal elbow-hang.

Oh yeah, this is sort of what the game looks like from a fishes view point -- not that there are any fish that we are aware of in Norton Pool.

This is what happens when you use inflatable goals and somebody throws REALLY HARD -- Bob has to do an emergency end-of-game inflation! See you all next year!
