The fastest game on two feet!
played in three different venues at levels from 3rd grade or younger (on the west coast) all the way up to the professional leagues (NLL, MLL, and girly laX)

Outdoor Men's (REAL) lacrosse:
Played on a narrower soccer field.
two 6'X6' nets at opposite ends about 15 yards off the end line.
Nets surrounded by a 12' circular crease (like in hockey).
Metals sticks (some wood) made out of anything from aluminum to titanium to scandium.
plastic heads that are so vast in number it makes your head spin (very customizable with).
Leather (traditional) straps woven with nylon string or Tight weave nylon mesh (hard, soft, monster, or six diamond mesh.
Similar to soccer in that there are attackmen, middies, and defensemen.
defensemen say on their end as do the attackmen, middies go where ever they like.
goalies stay on their island (the crease).
no cross checking (like hockey) or slashing (excessive force put into a stick check) or tripping or helmet checks.
there are some technical rules involving the restraining boxes and the clearing boxes and the midline that I won't get into.
11 on 11 play (including the goalie)
Hell of a lot of fun!
Hell of a lot of contact!
Hell of a lot complex plays!
Hell of a lot of LAX

Indoor (hockey) laX:
same as outdoor except it's played on a hockey rink sized field with walls and smaller 3'X3' goals. looser on the foul calls. lots of fights in the pros (NLL... GO JAX). no off sides. 6 on 6 play (including the goalie)

Girls (funny) Lacrosse:
no offense to any girl lacrosse players, cuz i love that you love the game, but i don't get girls lacrosse.
there's no contact (kinda takes away half the fun and all the defense)
there's hardly any pocket on the sticks (no sick fakes or sick rips or easy passes)
if there was a decent girls goalie on the west coast then her team would never lose because girls lacrosse shots have more arc then my 80 yard clearing pass, not to mention i could take a nap in the time it takes for the shot to get from your sticks to the goal.
no real face-offs (they have some goofy standing one)
other wise the same at guys laX as far as technical rules and infractions.
11 on 11 play (including goalies)

Best spring spots in existence (besides Motocross (but that's not a team sport))

It's like this:
soccer + Hockey + basketball + football - gay (baseball) + Track X 100 + Metal Poles to beat on people with + style = LAX

not to rip on baseball... cuz i watch the world series game 7 only if it goes to game 7
but i compare baseball to sitting on a bench staring a wall for and hour and a half then have some beefcake, raisin nut, sack grabber through a rock at you and you have to react.
Fun fact: Lacrosse is the fastest game on two feet

Fun fact: Lacrosse is the most physically demanding sport in the world next to Soccer and motocross

Fun fact: There are only 7 minutes of actual playing time in an average baseball game.

Fun fact: I've met, been coached by, and played against Casey and Ryan Powell, Brian Silcott, Brodie Merrill, most of the 2006 Syracuse lacrosse team, and most of the university of Oregon Lacrosse team (they tight)

An ultra-cool sport, with a coolness factor second only to rugby.
"Yo, you play lacrosse? Fuckin' hardcore!"

n. a game that khaki wearing white boys play during the spring because "baseball is gay"
Caucasian male in your English class #1: Did you see that sick lacrosse game last night?
Caucasian male in your English class #2: Yeah, bro! Dirk has so much skill. I'm glad he's out there playing lacrosse instead of with the faggots on the baseball field.

A College Town in western Wisconsin on the Mississippi River. Essentially a small town with many elements of a big city. A nice place for people who want an escape from the city but not city life altogether. Plenty to do year round, though mostly in Summer and Winter.
Spend a weekend in La Crosse and you may have a new outlook on life when you go home.

Lacrosse is a trendy sport that seems to have been idolized by many in the past 5 years. It appears to be a rather preppy sport, although I am not the best judge for that.
1)Honestly, I first heard of Lacrosse two years ago, when someone in my social studies class made a Lacrosse stick as part of a Native American research project.

2)The preppily-dressed senior had to go to her Honda to retrieve the lacrosse stick she forgot.

The national sport of Canada, which is very popular in both Canada, USA, and the UK. It's the best sport ever - there are lots of rules (but fortunately not the kind that will stop you damaging somebody).

One of the most hardcore, badass games ever invented (so long as it's full contact), it's easily at least as violent as rugby, ice hockey or american football. It's a game for real men.

Lacrosse is played in the UK by boys and girls, due to a recent craze emerging especially around Manchester.

UK male Lacrosse is basically the same as US Lacrosse, with the same rules and full contact.

UK girls' Lacrosse does now have contact but only stick checking is allowed. Only Mixed Lacrosse is non-contact, in case the guys decapitate the girls.
Lacrosse is f**king hardcore dude. If you haven't heard of it, go play baseball with the pussies.

US Boys - full contact, badass game

UK Boys - full contact, same badass game

UK Girls - a little bit of contact, not as badass

UK Mixed - no contact.yawn.

Lacrosse:
a sport that requires hand-eye coordination. It is extremely hard and only for the most talented. Some people may think its as easy as a ball in a stick, but it is much more complex. You need to be able to run, need to be able to take a beating and must be strong. You also need to be able to handle what the ref says whether he is wrong or right.
Some of the most hardest positions in lacrosse are:
All
The goalie is undermined because people think it is as easy as catching a ball. WRONG. Goalies must be able to yes, catch a ball but also see where the ball is going and follow it, and be able to swallow tears when the ball hits their bare skin. Midfield is also very hard too, because middys run up and down, and all over the field. Defense too, you need to be big, and loud and scream and stay on your girl and continue to guard her.

If you want to play lacrosse, you would need to be ready to be awake at 4 in the morning for a 6:00 tournament. YES TOURNAMENT.
The practices are the least fun in all of lacrosse but pays off the most. Lacrosse is the best sport ever.
I was up at 3 in the morning for my lacrosse tournament! I'm exhausted but ready for practice!
