On the last Spotted we showed an awesome behind-the-back goal featured on Gatorade’s Instagram, and this week we have a Gatorade-like sports drink featuring a lacrosse player on the bottle! Let’s take a look at Glacier X Sports Drink.
Gatorade is basically the pinnacle of sports drinks, and they just posted an Instagram photo of a lacrosse player flying through the air while going behind the back to score. What a shot, both by the player and the photo!
Humans of New York is back on Spotted with another lacrosse photo! This time it’s a youth player in the park, in full gear nonetheless. But his true ambition isn’t lacrosse – it’s dog walking!
We have another TV lacrosse stick spotting, but this time it’s from Portlandia! Thanks to @ConnectLax for tweeting us this week’s spotting, and including this awesome hashtag.
Toronto Rock star Garrett Billings was recently the subject of a CNN.com article in the site’s “Human to Hero” series.

Ever heard of Humans of New York? It’s a really cool photo blog that pairs portraits of people in, you guessed, New York City with quotes and captions about their lives.

Sometimes you see lacrosse while shopping. That’s what happened to our guy Sergey, who spotted some lacrosse sticks and photographs at a Ralph Lauren Outlet Store in Omaha, Nebraska.
Ever heard of Dude Perfect? It’s basically a group of five guys doing insanely awesome tricks and stunts, filming these antics, and posting them to YouTube. But maybe antics isn’t the right word, because the tricks Dude Perfect pulls off are extremely impressive, and these five friends have amassed quite a following on following on YouTube – over 2.4 million subscribers to be exact. And hey, they just used a lacrosse goalie stick in one of their recent videos, Nerf Sports Edition.
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.

Last week we had a spotting from NBC’s Community, and this week we have a spotting from another NBC TV show: Parenthood. Shout out to Claudia with this week’s spotting!
Back in January, lacrosse was spotted on the TV show Community. I’m not quite sure what was happening in the episode, which appears to be “Geothermal Escapism,” the fifth episode of the show’s fifth season. Thanks to reader Jeff for the tip!
It’s fairly well known that longtime New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick is a lacrosse guy. His daughter is the head coach for Wesleyan’s women’s program, and she as well as Bill himself played their college ball at Wesleyan.

Earlier this week we were tipped off by reader Travis that Keith Olbermann brought up an NLL game during his show on ESPN. A little bit after that, the Rochester Knighthawks posted this photo on Instagram:
