The Basics Of Lacrosse posted by Lacrosse

Lacrosse is a team sport that is mainly played in North America, but has still not gained much popularity. The origins of this game can be traced back to 1100 AD, and it was mainly played by indigenous people of the continent. It became more established in the seventeenth century, and Jesuit missionary priests had documented the game being played somewhere in Canada. However, the game has undergone several changes since then.

Presently Lacrosse is played with a small rubber ball and a lacrosse stick, which has a loose mesh at one end for holding and catching the ball. The objective of the game is to shoot the ball into the goal of the opponent. The ball can only be carried, passed, and caught with the lacrosse stick, and the other team will try to stop the ball from being shot into their goal by positioning, body contact, and stick checking. In the field, players take four major positions, which are the goalie, defense, attack, and midfield. Lacrosse has four main types that include Intercrosse, Box Lacrosse, women's lacrosse, and men's field lacrosse.

In field lacrosse, each team will have 10 players, consisting of one goalie, three defenders, three midfielders, and three attackers. In the game, attackers, typically use a short lacrosse stick, whereas the defenders use a longer lacrosse stick. The defenders could use either type of stick; however, only four players of each team can use the long lacrosse stick at a time. The lacrosse field is 55 meters wide and 100 meters long, and the goals measure 6 x 6 feet. The defensive and offensive areas are surrounded by restraining boxes. The game starts with a face-off, where two players place their sticks next to the ball in a horizontal position. The face-off starts with scrapping for the ball, and clamping it inside the mesh, and passing the ball by flicking it to other players.

Conversation with Tom Ryan posted by Randolph Charlotin

This doesn't have anything to do with football, but when a new local team hits the scene as does well, I won't ignore the accomplishment. Tom Ryan is the head coach and general manager of the Boston Blazers. In their expansion season, they went 10-6 and reached the playoffs. They deserve to be heard from.

Things to do in Denver when it's dead posted by Dale Saunders

     In the last 20 years or so, Denver Colorado has emerged as one of the sports hubs of the country. We boast all four major professional sports teams, three of which have compeated at the  championship level. We also are home  to a number of "B" list sports teams, The most exciting of which is The NLL Colorado Mammoth Lacrosse team. Just in-case some of you aren't familiar with lacrosse, it's the second most played game in all of Canada. Briefly; it's a smooth blend of hockey and soccer. For those of you that find yourself missing the physical aspect of football with high speed collisions on turf, you need to check it out. What soccer and hockey bot lack in scoring, lacrosse makes up for. It's not uncommon for final scores to be around fifteen (combined). If you're disgusted by the notion that some people would like to rule fighting completely out of the NHL, then you need to watch lacrosse. In last nights Mammoth loss to the Rochester Knighthawks, there were two huge hits sending both of the Rochester players out of the game so they could dislodge their jock straps from around their tonsils. We were also treated to two good fights, one that sent four players to the box. For those of you who enjoy the raucous atmosphere of the south end zone or Oakland Colosseum you'll find chest paint, voodoo costumes, chow bells, bullhorns and the rowdy Willy B of KBPI fame is the field announcer. Willy delights fans with plenty of in game trash talking. If you're not sold yet, let me mention the bikini laden hot tub right behind the glass in one corner of the field. If you can muster up the ten dollars to catch a game I guarantee, you will have fun. The most endearing aspect of an indoor lacrosse game is the players. After every game you're invited down to the field for autographs, and the players are gracious enough to stay and sign till well after ten o'clock. That's a big deal since all of these guys have regular nine to fives to get to. I strongly urge all of you to get out to one of these games.

Plaxico Burress- who needs him? posted by Derek

While watching the Big Blue march up and down the field against the Redskins in the first quarter today, it's hard to tell what is missing from the offense.  The Giants have a plethora of young, hungry receivers, led by Domenik Hixon and Steve Smith, as well as the always quietly reliable Amani Toomer.  The Giants can obviously win without the loquacious diva Burress, so why should they even attempt to keep him around after his latest off-field exploits?  Sure, he is an incredible talent.  His size makes him a dangerous weapon in the red zone, when he is able to post-up against smaller defenders, ala last year's Super Bowl game winner.  But all of the negative attention Plaxico brings far outweighs any benefits to the Giants offense.  He routinely misses practices and meetings and is constantly bringing attention to himself.  I say let him go.  I have played sports at a high level (my TEAM won an NCAA national championship in lacrosse) and I know from experience that success comes only when all members of a team buy in to the TEAM concept.  I am sorry for Plaxico's latest self-inclicted injury and hope he has a speedy recovery.  But here's hoping his rehab takes place as a member of the Cowboys.  They seem to like individuals more than teammates.  Good riddance!Continue reading "Plaxico Burress- who needs him?"

Dangerous Projectiles posted by Street Reporter

Nick Blackburn of the Twins was felled on Sunday by a line drive off the bat of Yankee Bobby Abreu, who's enough of a nice guy to show obvious distress as he ran to first. It's one of the greatest fears of any pitcher, as few have the instincts to get out of the way of a ball traveling 100+ MPH from fifty-five feet away (recall that the pitcher typically lands much closer to the plate than the sixty feet, six inches from the rubber to the plate).

Practically every game has its share of near-misses, with balls screaming past pitcher's legs, arms and faces, and giving the lie to any misbegotten notions that baseball is a game for sissies. Unlike football, hockey, lacrosse, or most other contact sports, baseball offers few protections to its players. Catchers get to be armored, home plate umps a little less so, and batters (plus this year, base coaches) can only don a helmet that still leaves their face exposed, and perhaps add a guard to previously injured elbows or shins.

Really, this is about the best that we can do to protect the batter from a thrown ball, and I'm not suggesting that pitchers wear helmets or hockey facemasks, nor should batters be allowed in up-armor themselves like a vulnerable Humveee. Nor does any other remedy make sense: softening the ball, moving the mound back, or changing to a kind of bat that rebounds less. Facing a pitched or hit baseball at close range is just one of those things that ballplayers must endure. Perhaps we can institute a higher level of medical insurance for pitchers, or hazard pay based on the number of pitches they throw, or comebackers that whizz past them.
