I wanted to open a thread, where any sport is discussed without opening a new thread for it. I'm a fan of the NBA, I don't know if there exists an own thread for it, but I'd be happy, if someone posts about it around here. Well, just one question:
What the hell is Lacross? Does anyone play it? I saw the guys in the movie "american pie" play, but couldn't figure out what they were doing.

Lacrosse was invented by Native North Americans. Its name was dehuntshigwa'es in Onondaga ("men hit a rounded object"), da-nah-wah'uwsdi in Eastern Cherokee ("little war"), Tewaarathon in Mohawk language ("little brother of war"), and baaga`adowe in Ojibwe ("knocking about of balls")
