    Some big bucks backing him, had it on in the background, but thought I heard them say Nacho was traveling with 13 of the 300 ponies he owns for a 6 week tournament in the Hamptons.

    Not exactly like they have a big TV contract to support it... the network of sponsors must have some major dinero to burn

    Patrons are like team captains that foot the bill if the team loses money or gets to keep it if there are profits. Hardly an expert. I just learned it from 60 minutes.

    Obligatory stoic white man saving inner city yoofs. :jj:

    They said people pay $50,000 for a table at one of those events.

    Does anyone outside of the hamptons care about polo!? Do they even have polo matches anywhere else in the USA?

    Could be. Polo is unbelievably snobby he wouldn't have to do that. He might really be trying to get more diverse groups playing the game.

    There is a polo club in St Louis. Anhauser Busch heirs pay for it.

    Hey y'all I got a question.
    I was watching the 60 Minutes segment about Nacho (or Nacho was in it... it was actually about polo and the horses and the sponsors and you just know that filthy girl reporter Lara Logan banged the hell out of Nacho) and I kept giggling like a fool everytime Nacho came on.

    My wife wanted to know what the big deal was and I said, "That's the gigolo who was banging Beth".
    So she says, "how do you know she was banging him?"
    So I said, "They were 'romantically linked'".
    But then she asked me how I knew all of that and all I could say was, "well... I read it on Dawg's site"
    :eek: :facepalm:

    Can you guys please remind me how we came to learn that Nacho was banging Beth and how they were "romantically" linked and what Howard did to quash the rumors? :hat:

    Beth should just sire Nacho's child already.

    I thought men "sired" children and women "birthed" them. :scratch:
