Spotted: Rich Boys Cries for… Lacrosse?


Spotted - lacrosse in unexpected places

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.

This week’s spotting comes to us from Kevin McDermott, who caught a glimpse of a Traditional Laser HiWall in the novel, Rich Boy Cries for Momma.

Rich Boy Cries for Momma

“…Rich Boy Cries for Momma is a semi-autobiographical coming-of-age novel by Ethan H. Minsker, an American writer and filmmaker. It is set in Washington, DC during the turbulent 1970s and ’80s, when the city and the nation, led by ruthless and amoral men, were riddled with strife, class struggles and scandal. The story is told by an unnamed teenage narrator, the dyslexic son of two successful lawyers. Taunted, bullied and rejected by the “nice” children of the Washington elite, he is looking for a world that accepts him as he is. Outcasts, the teenager and his friends create their own world, without adults, that centers around punk rock music. In this underground subculture, with its own codes and hierarchy, it is survival of the fittest.”
