Much like the Indian inventors, teams don’t so much “play” lacrosse, as “wage” lacrosse against the neighboring teams/tribes.

As a former lax player, I got this one right. Go Duke (PhD, 1989)!

I guessed lacrosse, but I was wondering whether it is popular here in the NE and not in other regions of the country.

Johns Hopkins 12, Duke 11. Hopkins is again NCAA Division 1 champion.  It is good to see the world in its natural state. Now if the same good and loving God who inspired the Hopkins team will clean up the Episcopal Church.

Hopkins does it again!  Go Blue Jays!

It was a glorious day at M&T in Baltimore. The undefeated ‘05 run was special.  But this was sweet, very, very sweet. 

Duke deserves a lot of credit for their nearly successful 2nd 1/2 comeback.

I was talking with one of our neighbors Saturday, and her teen-age son has just come to live with her.  After trying out for (and playing) a few different sports, he decided to try out for the Lacrosse team—and says he’s found his sport! He absolutely loves the game. (From what I understand, they didn’t offer it at the school he used to attend.)

Guessed it wink (and probably the only ever sports question I’ll ever get right, lol!)

But then my youngest played LaX in high school, and we could see how it was spreading through the schools.
