While the college lacrosse season is in full swing, Kyle’s first game of the season is set for tomorrow afternoon. Thus, today’s services will revolve around lax bros.
Lacrosse is a team sport played with a lacrosse stick and a ball. Players use the head of the lacrosse stick to carry, pass, catch, and shoot the ball into the goal.
The sport has four versions that have different sticks, fields, rules and equipment: field lacrosse, women’s lacrosse, box lacrosse and intercrosse. The men’s games, field lacrosse (outdoor) and box lacrosse (indoor), are contact sports and all players wear protective gear: helmet, gloves, shoulder pads, and elbow pads. The women’s game does not allow body contact but does allow stick to stick contact. The only protective gear required for women players is eyegear, while goalies wear helmets and protective pads.
It is by far the greatest sport in the world; not that I’m biased or anything. There are more photos below the fold…
Lacrosse players come in all shapes and sizes, but the best players are usually the most physically fit.
