Ben (my son) had his birthday party last weekend and we hosted a shindig at a local community center for Ben and ten of his closest friends. While we were there, a lacrosse practice started in an adjacent room in the building.
What amazes me most is not that these kids give up part of their Saturdays to practice, but that one of them ends up in goal. These poor little goalies, dressed head to shin guard in armor, have all of their teammates use them as target practice for about two hours. That’s like asking for the firing squad, but knowing the bullets won’t kill you, only hurt like crazy.
