  • I have a sinking feeling that Canada is 3 out of 3 for gold with all of their national sports so far.
    I didn't know they had lacrosse at the Olympics. Can we be friends again now. :x

  • On Sunday its a 4:00AM start here in la la land, I'm trying to make plans on wether to just stay up or set the alarm, maybe I'll do a fully attended overnighter. No, on second thought if I didn't fall asleep, I'd probably just drink too much and pass out. 

    Go Canada Go!

    Sorry, the "other" winter sport of curling.

    I was not speaking about the "true" national sport of Canada. But since you mentioned it, we can be friends. I grew up watching Gary and Paul. The hidden ball trick is one of the greatest plays ever.
  • Lacrosse has lost its favour with Canadians, ever since we started using a net and quit tying the chief to a tree and traded using a rock for a rubber ball.

    It may have been the 28 straight years of losing at World's. At least there was 2006.

    It used to be what hockey players did to keep in shape over the summer. Now they worry about getting hurt. Rough game.

    Losers. They just can't handle the speed of the game.
  • I played goal in hockey but only one game of lacrosse in a Jr. A game. Guess why.

    I know, I was a midfielder from 5th-12th grade. The bruising from taking a shot to [insert body part] was insane. I never wore a cup and I am amazed I never took a shot there. 
  • Field lacrosse is for girls. Goalie jocks are made for frontal assault only. Those Indian rubber balls go vertical on a bounce off concrete. @-)

    I wouldn't call the Gait brothers girls. They weren't wearing skirts at Syracuse. Indoor/box is for winter time. It's a lot more fun to aim for the ear hole.
  • We played in the summer in the arenas after the ice was out?

    I played lacrosse a few years ago and I remember playing the natives in Iroquois. That was a rough game with a fight every couple of minutes and guys being tossed over the boards all the time. We lossed by one that day. But ended up champs at the end of the year

    Oh ya we found that out quick. Luckily we only played them one game
  • I hated when we played hockey tournaments with six nations. The whooping and big tomahawk yells scared the crap out of us.
