"The Maltese Cat by Rudyard Kipling. A story of Polo told from the horses perspective.
Polo: The Emperor of Games by Frank Milburn.
I think both are excellent.
The polo scenes in Pretty Woman, not so much."
Is Nacho the first polo player to be a major sporting celebrity outside the world of polo ? Other sportsmen and women have been famous outside their sport. Is Nacho the first player to be known by members of the public who are not fans of polo and will this help the sport of polo as a whole ?

Just the other day, someone in one of the European legislations wrote me asked me what I thought of the idea of a monarchist party. Just the question a lone got me thinking on the whole thing, as had our discussion here. My answer to this question was that monarchy must remain neutral so that it cn remain a hedge against extremes and a split within a country. Perhaps nobllity is a glue to holds things together, a stable effect. Maybe that's why the new money marries into it. There is some staying power in the aristocracy.
I believe that it'll go on forever. Some modern progressives in Europe say titles are gone. Wrong they are. As ethics go down the tube, and runaway greed takes place - and adding in extremes - noble orders are gaining a role again. These are about helping the unfortunate and the poor. During our last 8 years in the US, and Europe's opposite trending - there is a reaction. The reaction is knowing the importance of stewardship and service all over again.
I must admit that debs going for the titles cracks me up. But it's a part of a long history within America to somehow bind with the blue bloods. There's some historical meaning to it there, but I haven't placed a finger on it yet.
Indeed European jet-setters are an interesting bunch. Over time, I have been able to see the various layers and factions within too. There's old tradition and then there are those into a form of elite spirituality similar to that in Hollywood. The dialog between the two at events can be interesting. I get a kick out of it for the most part.
ASW is very jet-setty, and has a European and international feel to it. It has a bit of product placement, but it's well done enough not to annoy. Decayenne has some great clubs in it that I like a lot. ASW is about connecting with people you know already, for the most part, and has no status bar or wall. I like both, but enjoy the clubs on Decayenne a lot.
