Hell yeah, national sport! I love it. Anybody pay attention to the NLL? (National Lacrosse League) which has been expanding massively recently!
I used to follow it very closely, then lost track for about two years and they added a shitload of teams so I just can't pay attention anymore.
But I'm still a Toronto Rock fan!

Haha, hell yeah! My buddy's uncle used to be the coach (Marty Cooper) or assitant. I forget, I know Les Bartley was for a while, so I forget is Marty was Asst or Head, but anyway he got me and my friend out to quite a few games a couople years back. It's such an awesome experience at an NLL game.

Not too far from. But he coached the Brock Badgers (St. Catharines University team) then moved up to the NLL, now he's just got a normal job.

Yeah, that's so true eh! Well with lacrosse, it seems to be the indians who dominate (not trying to be racist or anything) but when I played a few years back, we'd always get crushed by the Six Nations teams.

i still don't see why they think they should have their own team.

But home come Lacrosse hasn't really spread into the lower states so much? It only seems to be in Canada, and the northern parts of the USA. You'd think such a thrilling and patrially violent game would catch!

Hey, one question for Lacrosse fans. Aren't hockey type of fights allowed in Lacrosse? i've seen couple video clips of Lacrosse fights. Pretty cool if they are, hockey fights rule...

haven't been here for a while...
I just got into Lacrosse, what with getting a new NLL team here and all.... too bad they're one of the worst teams in the league (Edmonton Rush). I went to a good game in Calgary last year. Pretty entertaining, but hockey's still #1 for me.
