Is it played competitively outside of the US & Canada? Such a bizzare sport, exactly what the Olympics should have more of actually.

I thought it would be ice hockey, according to Wikipedia lacrosse is historically the national sport of Canada (seems it's origins are in Canada) but in 1994 there was a bill passed to make ice hockey the national "winter sport" and lacrosse the national "summer sport". They came to this comprise after opposition of the original bill which was to make ice hockey the national sport.

Ah interesting. I too always assumed Ice Hockey was the national sport seeing as it's on their money too. But my Canadian sister-in-law said it was La Crosse. I thought that La Crosse was just played by American jocks in highschool.

Fun looking sport anyway and looks rather brutal too.

You know me, any excuse to post a GIF of Terry Gilliam faking a heart attack.

Me too, but that assumption was entirely based on American Pie films alone.

Also, I think it's Lacrosse rather than La Crosse?

I thought it was Lacrosse too but for some reason assumed Bunni was correct.

Yup, American Pie is the exact reason why I thought that too :lol:

I also listen to American Pie. That’s why I now think that Lacrosse players are all gay.

I've saved that into a notepad. If we're all still around here in 2020 by god I'm holding you to that. You don't have to post it to me though.

If I'm still posting here in 2020, I'm sure I won't need it.

I remember a few years ago they did the FIFA player of the year awards. The sports people got their awards, but before then they did a FIFA game winner award. Some dude won a tournament online and got an award in front of sport personalities. Very cringe worthy, especially as he was typically over weight.
