The Sport of Kings and Hot Men

If you need something to do Saturday, May 30th, then I suggest you head over to Governors Island for some champagne and divot stomping at the Veuve Clicquot Manhattan Polo Classic. Usually polo is played in more bucolic settings like Bridgehampton or Argentina so a match in Manhattan seems a bit out of place but not completely without precedent. Apparently, they used to play polo on the island in the 1930’s and 40’s. Who knew?! Britian’s spare heir, Prince Harry will be playing, as will the only man capable of upstaging royalty, the muy caliente Nachos Figueras. Better start brushing up on your Spanish now ladies because where there is one handsome Argentine polo player, there are many! Adios Amigos!

    Remember the song, “These are a few of my favourite things…”

    I’ll be there in spirit.

    We’re polo freaks down here in Charlottesville, VA. I had no idea it was big in NYC. Hope a few of you get hooked!

    We go on Sundays to polo matches on the grounds of a vineyard. It’s a fun time!

    The polo scenics are even better in Buenos Aires, particularly Hurlingham, where no polo player appears to be deficient in the looks department.
