International Lax: Ghent Goblins in Koppen

Ghent Goblins Lacrosse CLub

The Ghent Goblins, a Lacrosse Club located in Belgium, were recently featured on a TV channel known as Koppen. They represented the game well and the feature probably generated hundreds of new first-time lacrosse fans in their area.

I’d be lying if I said I understood the dialogue in the video below. The only language I speak is English, and sometimes I don’t even speak that very well. You know what the cool thing is though? We as lacrosse players and fans have a different, universal language that revolves around this great sport. It’s called Passion. In this video, you can see and feel the passion coming from the players being interviewed, and that’s all you really need.

And now, the Ghent Goblins’ 2010 Christmas Card:

I now live in my hometown of Boise, Idaho, with my wife Zoë, two dogs, and a baby girl expected to arrive around Championship Weekend this May. I'm a technologist at heart, I'm not into snow or the month of January, and one time I kind of stole a football from Gary Gait.
