KEV'S LEAGUE OF BIKE POLO TEE 

 

If you're here looking at this shirt, you probably don't need an introduction to bike polo or who Kevin is or what he did for the sport. I'll try to explain anyway. 

 

It's nearly a month after Kev was killed by a driver while out on an evening walk with his partner and pals and I still can't believe I'm writing these words. I am heartbroken for his family and all of his friends. Kevin was an irreplaceable presence in my life and I am forever grateful for the time we had. 

 

It is my hope that Kevin's family will continue to feel his presence through all those who loved him. I hope we can all care for each other the way Kev cared for the people he held dear and for the bike polo community at large.

 

Maybe this shirt can be a symbol for us to really think about how we want to play; how we want to live :) 

 

The image on this tee was found on Kevin's Flickr. He credited his partner Lisa for taking it but she's unsure if she did or not. If you know who took it please let us know.

 

When I first started playing bike polo back in Madison around 2007, I made a similar shirt from an action shot of Kev playing grass polo. He was using a wooden mallet but he had the same signature 10 foot wingspan! I wanted to update the design with a hardcourt version and decided to add LEAGUE OF BIKE POLO to reference Kev's massive contribution.

 

To the font nerds who helped me find it, thank you! The font is Dosis, the last Kev used for LOBP back in 2016. The shirt is printed on a 6.1 oz. 100% cotton garment-dyed tee.
