Water Polo Pin - 1996

sgI picked up this fun item at the San Diego ComiCon. I simply love the idea of tying superheroes into promoting sports, this time via the United States Water Polo team. I think it helps get these characters more into the mainstream and in front of a new audience.

I remember seeing a Green Arrow/Archery one, and I assume there had to have been a Flash/Track one, as well. Howabout Batman/Biathalon, or Zatanna/Spellcasting?

My only question is how many game balls does the team go through, letting the Pirate Aquaman play?

Can you spike the ball in water polo?

When did spellcasting become a sport?

I have one similar to this except it's Diving. It's the coolest Grunge Aquaman thing I have.

I've got Wonder Woman for skiing and, I believe, either track or soccer (can't recall and they're out on loan now being photo'ed for a WW book by Andy Mangels).

Alas, you have to go through DC to get to Chronicle for something like that. Still, if you've got a proposal, I can hook you up to the right people at DC...!
