Editor’s Note: Muamer Razic tells us why he loves the game of lacrosse. Then he asks you to tell US why you love the game. If you do a good job, there may be a super awesome grab bag of swag in it for you! We’re talking brand new head great swag levels here. Read through and get to conversating!
On a LONG trip to Florida (of course I was rocking my LAS Summer swag), I started thinking about why I love the game so much. And then it dawned on me; there’s no single reason why I love the game of lacrosse.
Everything about our sport, and what it has to offer, intrigues me and makes me love it more and more. Whether it’s how easy it can be for almost anyone to be able to talk to, and learn from, some of the best players in our game, or simply how much fun one can have on that lacrosse field, it interests me. It really does. It doesn’t matter if it’s for a practice, a game, or laxing with a few friends, you know that you’ll have fun because you love the sport (hopefully). I mean, you can’t compete with that.
I love sports, and am not trying to hate on any other sports, but I don’t think that any other sport can compare with lacrosse. I mean it’s the fastest growing game in the world and it continues to evolve. The gear is getting more high-tech, the players are getting better, and more companies/people are taking notice of that, and are getting involved in the growth of the game.
When I was on the beach in Florida I was teaching a friend of mine how to play lacrosse and I could see everyone watching us and even heard some people talking about lacrosse and what we were doing. Needless to say, I loved it! But, that is not all that happened!!!
These two kids from Scotland were staying at the same resort, and they saw me carrying around my lacrosse stuff. So, they started asking me about it and after hearing just about everything lacrosse (when I start talking about lacrosse it’s hard for me to stop!) they said they wished they could play lacrosse in Scotland. Maybe I planted a seed! Not only that, but I went to Universal Studios and saw a kid wearing a lacrosse shirt there. Sometimes it’s the big things, sometimes it’s the little things.
It’s these little things that make me love the game more and more. Don’t get me wrong, playing the game is amazing, but if I couldn’t help Grow the Game, then it wouldn’t be the same.
I want to know why YOU love the game. Everyone has different reasons why they play/why they love it, so let’s hear yours!
(Editor‘s Note: Since this is SUCH a great question, and we really do want to hear what you have to say about WHY you Love the Game and want to see it grow, we’re going to give away a custom LAS Grab Bag. We don’t know what’s in the bag yet… it all depends on the number and quality of comments and conversation we get going. The better that is, the better the PRIZES will be. If it’s really good I can guarantee there will be a free head, some shorts, socks and a shooter! So get to it!)
