World Lacrosse Games

Just got back from being in Denver, CO for the world lacrosse games!  I had an awesome time there watching some of the games.  I even got a chance to meet the Thompson brothers and take a picture with them too!  While we were in Colorado, we went to the stadium two different days and saw Iroquois vs. Japan, a bit of Germany vs. Hong Kong, Team USA vs. Japan, and we were going to stay for Iroquois vs. Canada until there was a rain delay.  😦  The weather there made going to some of the night games pretty inconvenient, but it was still fun to be there!  During a rain delay on the first day we were there, we were stuck under a tent near team Poland, and it was very cool to listen to one of the players talk about the team and how it was an honor to play on Poland for his family and his grandparents, who were born in Poland!  He said 16 players were from Poland, 4 had dual citizenship and 3 were American like he was, or something like that, but had Polish family members.  (I could be slightly off with those numbers but that’s what I remember him saying!)  Anyway, it was a lot of fun to be there to see the best of the best playing in person.  The Thompson brothers are just so darn creative it’s unbelievable to watch!!  Here are some pictures from the weekend!  I used to have pictures of teams on the field, but I guess I accidentally deleted them.
