Save a Polo Pony. Ride a Segway.

There’s something oddly disturbing about this video of Segway of Oakland partner Steve Steinberg and pals playing a recent game of Segway polo in Oakland. Perhaps it’s the sultry soundtrack which conjures up some very nongeek images of, say, wafting pot smoke and sex. Or the fact that there’s apparently not a gasp of physical exertion required in this “game,” save for the ability to stand upright and tap a bright red ball with a mallet. (Learn to make your own three-foot whacker here.) To join the Oakland Junkyard Dogs and star in your own eerie flick, you’ve first got to learn how to ride.
