...LACROSSE SEASON STARTS!!! Yes, I know most people do not get this excited about lacrosse season. However, I am my father's daughter. For those of you who do not know my father, he played lacrosse growing up in Baltimore and all throughout high school and college. He subsequently officiated high school and college games up until having two knee replacement surgeries in the last several years. When my father officiated, my younger sister and I came along to games. During our younger years, we were bored out of our little minds. We used to pray that the high school to which we were dragged also had an affiliated grade school so that there would be a swingset or something to occupy us (shout out to Tatnall, which had by far the most entertaining facilities). But by the time we were older, we actually enjoyed watching the games. We also owned pee-wee sized lacrosse sticks as kids. We played in grade school. I started playing in high school and then ended up with the world's most evil lacrosse coach (long story, but if I had continued to play for her, I am fairly sure I would have ended up in the hospital and my high school would have had a very unpleasant legal situation on their hands), so I quit, and I think my father and I had the single largest fight we've ever had about my quitting. I then "managed" the mens' team. Anyway, my history aside, I like watching lacrosse, and I am particularly excited now that I go to a university with the No. 2 ranked men's lax team and the No. 12 women's team! It doesn't hurt that the lax stadium is a mere 5 minute walk from Darden.
