Jeannette and I watched a Swarm game on Friday night because I won tickets from my work. I felt like an ancient Roman watching gladiators, except, these people had funny sticks with nets on them. I was surprised at how violent the game is. It does follow the rules of hockey, including the unwritten rules, like you get to punch someone repeatedly, and not be charged with assault, or even kicked out of the game. It was a good game, but lacrosse is very much a northern suburbs, truck driving with a dead deer strapped to the back, lovin America, but hating everyone else not as white as you kind of sport.
