I know from a pure numbers perspective of the HS and colleges adding a sport in the last 25 years, lacrosse has been at the top of the list. I get it's not for everybody, as is the case w/ all sports.
But what I don't get is when somebody says this:
I don't like lacrosse b/c there isn't enough scoring or action. Yet this same person likes baseball and / or soccer...which BOTH have far less scoring than lacrosse.
Heck...I'm just happy I live in a place where I can talk about it w/ other sports fans on this forum and go see a good game when I have the time.
Happy 4th of July everybody!
I think there's enough scoring/action in lacrosse, way more than in soccer -- just not exactly my thing. I can appreciate and respect the sport however. That's been the biggest thing for me in this World Cup, I might not love soccer and just be flag-waving, but it takes a lot of stamina to play especially since they don't exactly have breaks. I did cross country in high school and used to run a lot more and I'm impressed, takes a lot more endurance than most sports.
In terms of baseball being boring, I can appreciate both a high and low scoring affair -- I don't really even have much of a preference here. Soccer, I'm just bored with the lack of real scoring opportunities in a lot of cases, but I'll admit besides the World Cup especially when the US isn't playing, I don't give it much of a chance. There's enough to tie me down between baseball, football (both pro/college), college basketball, and to a lesser extent, the NBA/NHL. My brother (who generally dislikes baseball) always likes to remind me if I grew up in England, I'd be into Manchester U or something -- while I like to march to my own drum, I think how you grow up matters.
Even when we don't see eye-to-eye, I do respect your passion for lacrosse.
