Water Polo at the Huntington Y, Friday December 27, 2013

Yes, I finally managed to get in a picture (above) if not the Water Polo "match" itself... somebody had to take the pictures! Thanks to Marko (below) for taking my picture and for bringing the ball. A BIG Thanks to Bob Miller and the Huntington Y for setting this time up for us for probably the tenth year in a row (or is it more?). 

We got together on a Friday afternoon, (12/27/2013) of Christmas Week so many potential swimmers were still traveling or even worse, WORKING... so the turnout was light. In fact, for the first year that I can remember, we had NO Women... what's up with that girls? Time to answer the challenge in 2014... so make plans now. Water Polo is a GREAT workout. I'd much rather swim 3,000 or 4,000 yards than do even 30 or 40 minutes of water polo. It is that intense. Lots of fun and NO injuries!

Enjoy the pictures and we'll hope to see you in 2014.

Follow the three shots below for a goal!
