Thanks Crafty.

I learned something today: the Iroquois invented Lacrosse and the original versions involved whole armies of braves (100-1000) on fields up to 2 miles long.

Mind blown. We need some sports like this in the modern age. And I thought football was impressive...

Both my sons play lacrosse they are 12 and 13 years old.

The really rough stuff is called Box Lacrosse it's played indoors it's much more like hockey in terms of body contact.

Lacrosse is the national sport of Canada something I didn't know when my boys first started playing.

Pship Destroyer is right-- there is deep history here. Those taking the time to search a bit will be well rewarded.
