Nothing About the world games
    by (#3709) on 7/26/10 @12:05PM
Really? Nothing about the USA vs Canda game. This is why our sport does not grow.

This is arguably the game with the best players in the world going head to head representing their countries on a world stage.

The world games should be hyped up beyond all else. But instead you have to be a lax fanatatic to find any information on them. Your casual lax fan will never see anything about the world games.

But instead we see reports on high school summer all-star games.

This is so frustrating.

All you have to do is get on the FIL (Federation of International Lacrosse) website and they have plenty of articles and video highlights to watch, a lot more simple than complaining and posting comments on lax.com. Many people including me enjoy watching the high school all-star games...

In that case, I wouldn't really put a team from Deleware in the same group as WI. Ditto for Cheshire and FP. Cheshire was solid this year but probably #3 in CT, and FP has never been elite.

i would hope long island would be good at lacrosse considering over 7 million people live there. think of how big that is compared to the baltimore area that was picked from talent-wise.

if anyone has a hard time grasping just how large LI is, check this out:


i had no idea that if it were a state it would be the 12th largest. insane!

That's just sad, if you want real facts don't go to wikipedia. Long Island is about the size of New Jersey, a little smaller. Nice try though! A for effort....

I think he means population not actual square mileage...
Soooo... Yup, still 12th largest.
F for being an A-hole and thinking you're right.

uh, yes!

i did mean population man, thanks.

Maryland doesn't even have 6 million in the entire STATE.

If you combine the amount of college talent and pro talent from MD and the small pool/population that draws from to the gigantic pool/population that upstate NY and Long Island come from I would think that MD can hold its own...wouldn't you say?
