You can say its a "macho" sport all you want, but its a game where men in thin shirts ride around fiercely on horses so they can smack balls with long shafts.
If you got Kathy Griffin to host this thing, they'd put it on BRAVO!
Anyway, the first ever Gay Polo Tournament is being held in Wellington, FL. next week with four teams competing to be sponsored by Credit Suisse.
According to sources, since homosexuals are so new to the game, each team had to recruit a hetero just so they could have enough players!
The spokesperson for the event explained that the rules would remain the same and that the boys would be riding the same steeds as in a nongay polo match. So what really is the difference between a hetero and a homo game of polo? The spokesperson replied:
"Of course, the uniforms are a little chic-er . . . the balls are a little nicer, too."
