    One of my all time favorite sports after soccer is Lacrosse. I was wondering if anyone out there played?

    If so, where do you play?

    I'm located in Seattle, WA. and was trying to get a feel of how many people out there whom are gay actually played lacrosse.

    I'm growing rather hungry for another sport aside from soccer. The Gay Games and the world Outgames do not offer Lacrosse as a sport. Even though it's hell of a lot more vicious than football. Definately as injury prone as Rugby and hell of a lot faster than hockey.

    If there are tons of gay men out there that played or still play i'd like to really know.

    Thanks icon_smile.gif

    Quite honestly the dumbest quote i've ever heard in my entire life.

    The natives played it long before it was adopted by americans. Just an FYI icon_smile.gif

    Just because George Carlin did not understand the sport itself doesn't give him the authority to dismiss it as he says "college activity".

    By many, it's a far more interesting sport to watch and to play than football. It's faster paced than hockey. Has just as many fist fights if anything. Definately the same intensity in training as football if not more considering the hand-eye co-ordination behind a bared mask and helmet.

    I wasn't going to say anything regarding your funny comment, however i figured i'd defend the sport i grew up playing. It's definately worth the play. Had you been on the field i'd have had no problems spearing you in your place ;) I'd take a 2 minute penalty over you ;)
