The gist of our polo experience: It's a four-hour long tailgate that's a few levels up from beer and grilling in a parking lot at a football game. There's wine, cheese, dates, dresses, floppy hats, pastel shorts, Polo shirts and, oh yeah, horses!
We find out the history of the "Sport of Kings" and how the game works, how Argentina plays a major role in polo, the fashion aspect of a polo match, the perks of being a polo club owner, and the origin of the Polo shirt.
While we drink our wine, eat our cheese and discuss what we Googled before attending the posh event, we also make terrible (read: fantastic) puns, Emily has an idea for a "better" mallet, our intense knowledge of "My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic," "Pretty Woman," qualities of a horse to look for in a relationship, Babe Ruth's STDs, the breeding of WASPs to walk in the grass in high heels, a Periscope suggestion of cloning Louie Anderson for polo purposes, James' curiosity about floppy hats, James' finally learns what pastels are, and the birth of a new word: "Afazing."
Tune in every other #WineWednesday for a new episode! Cheers!
