AND STUFFWe had the opportunity to attend the Denver Lacrosse Shoot Out with our son last weekend. The event, staged at the Dick’s Sports Arena, was massive in scope with over 200 teams comprising all divisions. There were 16 teams in my son’s division.
As I am told is the norm, the weather changed about every 10 minutes. The weather ranged from hot strong winds, to rain, to cold winds, a little lightening, and then warm again. But in a way the changing weather was good in that it allowed the kids to play in various conditions.
My son’s team, Platinum Factory, played great. They rose to the occasion beating a couple teams that were much larger. In more than one game they were buried at the half and fought their way back for a win.
As a result of their superb effort Factory won all the preliminary games and was in the championship game. They boys played great, and for a time it looked as if they would win. But, hats off to Houston, seems they were to win one more game then us.
If you have not yet checked out a lacrosse game, give it a look. The ancient Native American’s game is thrilling.
