|Cincinnati Polo Club at Wilshire Farm|
a match at the home club's regular field outside of Milford took a turn toward Wilshire Farm in Goshen and the special Galloping Pig benefit hosted by Dhani Jones' Bow Tie Foundation. His foundation supports Breakthrough Cincinnati that affords art experiences for urban middle school students in cooperation with the Cincinnati art Museum. And we all had a better time, I'm sure, because of that.

as the Announcer
Bow ties and sundresses were the suggested attire. (It's amazing how much attention a bow tie attracts on a man.) Actually, it was nice to "dress" for a festivity—something that so rarely happens these days. There are certain traditions
that go with the sport of polo, one being the stomping of the divot. The recent drier weather didn't allow too many of those to appear, but Carole did manage to find one with the help of Dexter. Various rules were explained throughout the match as Cincinnati played the Columbus team. Cincinnati started with a 3 point handicap lead that allowed them to win the match 6-4. Thank goodness they didn't end up in a tie breaker, known as a whack off in polo. I won't even tell you where Sittenfeld went with that one! I'm just wondering if Ralph Lauren was aware of that when photographing his innocent, preadolescent ads?
