L.A. Crosse

First lacrosse event of the spring drew us out to the NHS fields late this afternoon.  Ph.'s team--in the white jerseys (he's no. 3, mid-pile here)--lost the scrimmage, 7-6.  I'm not always sure what's going on out there: several faintly familiar rules rolled into one--slashing, penalty boxes, face-offs, out-of-bounds, spacing and ball reversal.  Really I have no clue.  But Ph. insists that it's fun, and he managed to net a goal this afternoon, so I guess that's notable.  I put a few other pics in a slideshow for you diehards.

Added:  Just learned over dinner that Ph. went without wearing the sports goggles or glasses he needs to...erm...see the ball clearly.

I don't know why, but that picture sort of reminds me of the pope's funeral proceedings.

You are a seer of things papal, Alice. I looked and looked, but pope's funeral--nothing. Unless it's the crowding, sticks (or something...somehow I missed *all* of the pope coverage).

Maybe it's just because they look like they're digging. Or maybe it's because I haven't slept in awhile.

I mustn't have been tired enough becuase now I can see what you meant. Crypt-ic image, eh?
