A Local Sporting Event

Took the family, all three generations of us, to see the Rochester Knighthawks, one of the nine teams of the National Lacrosse League. The local team lost, but it was great fun. Far better a sport than basketball, football, or soccer.

Lacrosse is, of course, a local sport, having been played at least nine centuries in these parts. About a quarter of our local team is Iroquois, mostly from across the border from the Six Nations of the Grand River First Nation. Most of the league seems to be made up of Canucks, which is natural; the game is basically hockey on turf.
