Way better than baseball, lacrosse is sport for rich high school and college kids. It is very popular in Canada and the states in the Northeast US (particularly Maryland), because of the region's abundance of aforementioned rich college kids. Its the only college level sport (excluding UMCP basketball) that Div. 1 college teams from Maryland are reliably good at.

Fan 2: Wow, we may suck at college basketball and football but we rule at lacrosse!
