On January 1, 2005 the first annual Polar Bear Olympics were held on Sullivan’s Island. The two highly competitive teams “Team Toyko” and “Team Frozen Tundra” were both a little hung-over but the action was intense. The first sporting event consisted of a highly anticipated game of woffle ball. Team Tundra wearing are stylish medium wife-beaters were the better team. The power bats of Moose Dragner and Don-key Desai were too much for the injury prone Team Toyko. The game got a little out of hand when Kev didn’t know that he had to run when he hit the ball. Old Man pitched a pretty good game for team Tokyo but Team Frozen Tundra just had to many secret weapons.
Then 2nd event of the day was a nice calm game of bocce ball on the beach. The Olympic uniforms were not made to stand the cold windy beaches in early January. As the pictures show Don-Key and I were freezing. But that couldn’t stop team Frozen Tundra from making a remarkable comeback. With a few minor hazards on the course, like a huge pile of dog crap couldn’t even stop the inevitable. With the women on the team leading the way, Pink Panda and B-ver were on fire. Even the master play of Oldness couldn’t hold Tokyo together.
After a long day of Polar Bear Olympic sports evens the after party at Tsunami’s was awesome. Great Sushi and sake made for all a good time.
