This is Beco the elephant. Beco lives at the Columbus Zoo and spends his free time playing water polo — or at least that’s what I was told.

I’m a little bitter. I was promised an elephant playing water polo. What I got was an elephant in a few feet of water kicking a soccer ball. This could be a miscommunication, but I’m more concerned that Beco is trying to pursue a career in a sport that he doesn’t actually know how to play.

If he wants to be a successful water polo player, there are a few necessary steps he will have to take.

First, he needs to figure out how to pick up the ball. That’s a major part of the game, and the lack of hands will make this part fairly difficult.

Secondly, he’s going to need a regulation size swimming pool instead of that sorry excuse for a puddle he’s currently training in.

Finally, Beco will have to find a water polo organization that allows elephants to play. That might be the hardest part.
