Very fun sport. I started in 8th grade and have now been playing for seven years. A ton of fun.

Forwards(Attack and Midfielders) use 3-foot long sticks, not including the head, defenders use 6-foot long sticks. A lot of people call Defense long poles, or sometimes a forward will use one of the 6-foot sticks on a faceoff, and in that case they would be called a long-pole midfielder. Goalies, IIRC, use a 4.5 foot stick.

I then hike over to the Gustavus library and wrap it up and have to drive home at around midnight.

In conclusion I just got home, and Hopslam and sweatpants have never felt so good.
Foreign language? You mean you don't know what pounding nattys, scoring top cheddar, shot bottom Parmesan, rip the duck, etc. mean?

There are some very dumb terms when it comes to lacrosse, but if you get into the sport a lot of it starts to make sense. In a hilarious/silly way.

St. Peter is a nice little town. I have some buddies down at Gustavus and I've been on campus there a few times. Their football/lacrosse stadium is pretty nice as well.

Congrats

Never had a cavity, personally. Kind of wondering how long that streak is going to last. 19 years is stretchin' it.
