Editor’s note: Welcome to another great installment of “Spotted”. With your help, we hope to shine a light on lacrosse spotted in unexpected places, whether it be on TV or in real life. If you find any aspect of lacrosse in a place you didn’t expect it, we would love to hear from you. Take a quick photo or video and submit it at!

50 First Dates is a romantic comedy about how Adam Sandler’s character falls in love with Drew Barrymore’s character. The catch is that Barrymore’s character has short-term memory loss, and forgets who Sandler is each morning. Overall, I think it’s just a fun movie to watch, but did you know that Barrymore gets to smack Sandler with a lacrosse stick in the movie?

The lead-in photo shows you the still frame, but let’s take a look at the trailer to see it in action. Feel free to watch the whole trailer (and the whole movie – like I said, I think it’s a good one!), but the lacrosse spotting happens around the 0:37 mark:

Ouch! Right on top of the head. I’m assuming that Drew Barrymore didn’t actually hit Adam Sandler on the head, but who knows! Thanks to reader Matt for this one!
