    I just noticed this new forum and wanted to be the first one to post something. I have a question...

    Why isn't Lacrosse more popular? its kind of like hockey, but you do not have to know how to skate...like soccer, but you carry a stick and can hit people with it. I love it, but wonder why it has not caught on?

    LaCrosse is a great game. The indoor variety is far more exciting than the outdoor one, IMO as a spectator.

    For that matter, as far as American sports fans are concerned, I think that the indoor version of soccer was very exciting too, compared to the outdoor version.

    Americans love scoring in their sports and sitting through 0-0 or 1-0 soccer games is a total bore.

    Most teams in the MLS for example score less than an average of one goal per game over the course of a season.

    Now, I realize that there is great skill involved in soccer, and I do watch it on occassion sometimes to see how the revs are doing but trying to get into a 0-0 game is pretty hard.

    Coincidentally, I was surfing through the sports channels earlier today and when I hit one of the ESPNs they had a MLL game on between the Rochester Rattlers and Boston Cannons.

    It was being played at Harvard Stadium.

    It was tied 13-13 in the 4th quarter. Don't know who won cause I changed station to the news.

    Was interesting to watch.

    Like every other sport in America, it is overshadowed by football.
