Lax is here... / by Michael


It's that time of year, the lacrosse season is upon us.  Lacrosse is arguably the fastest sport on two feet. It's also the only popular sport that was created by indigenous North Americans. If you think it's hard for a pro baseball player to hit a 90 mph fastball from 18 meters away, imagine what a high school lacrosse goalie faces: a hard rubber ball screaming at up to 100mph with a wild bounce off the turf just 6 feet in front of you, without the benefit of seeing the pitcher's wind-up! Add into that the speed of soccer, the contact of football and hockey, and the rhythm of basketball - you have one of the most exciting sports around. Lacrosse is as brutal as it is poetic.
