Hand painted Batman lacrosse cleats I did for a friend. Warrior Burn 6.0 I believe.
Anonymous asked: how do you feel about recent movements across the country to instil rules about helmets and other heavier protection gear into the rulebooks for girls lacrosse? are you for, against? and if we do get more gear, do you think the rules should also be able to be loosened more?
This makes me think a lot about the last question I just got. I think that with any sport, there’s an opportunity for injury, and everyone needs to take precaution when partaking in any activity. I’ve seen people with broken ribs, internal bruising, concussions, and broken/twisted limbs in GIRL’s lacrosse. Everyone thinks that just because girls don’t have more protective gear, that means it’s not dangerous, and it’s that mentality that makes it such a risk. I think there should be increased appreciation for the severity of the injuries incurred during girl’s lacrosse, and if a way to prevent further incidents is to increase protection, then so be it. And maybe then, girls will be allowed to check. We’ll just have to wait and see.
bekkaa asked: what do you think about a lof of girls wanting to play boys lacrosse? i personally would love to play with *all* of the same rules as the boys, even i we still played in separate leagues. i'm also personally really tired of the boys on my school's team and the other teams in our area saying that girls lacrosse isn't a sport, or that its not equivalent to boys lacrosse. :/
I think that girl’s lacrosse can be just as brutal as boy’s lacrosse, but the lack of outlandish violence in either is what makes the sport so elegant. While I’ve often thought about how much I’d like to just check someone on the field, I know that that’s not the way to properly handle a situation. I think boy’s lacrosse is a fine sport, but no one should ever ridicule one as opposed to another.
Anonymous asked: How much do you depend on your goalie? & when they miss shots/or you loose a game; do you blame the goalie or get mad at them?
THANK YOU FOR ASKING ME A QUESTION
I know that in a lot of sports, when something doesn’t go right, it’s easy to blame the person in charge or the person you rely on the most.
Of course, everyone relies on goalies, which is why they’re so coveted. They make calls, they make saves, they put themselves on the line, and they’re 50% of what makes or breaks a game.
I think it’s really important to respect your goalie and understand what she’s going through in the crease. She’s out there all by herself and everyone’s counting on her to save every shot, and that’s not always possible. She will always feel the worst when your team loses, and she’ll feel like it’s her fault, but you should always know it’s never anyone’s individual fault. Your team is supposed to be working together, not against each other, and that’s why you should never get angry when you lose, especially not with someone who puts themselves out there for you, like your goalie does.
