Editor’s note: Welcome to another installment of “Spotted,” where we shine a light on lacrosse spotted in unexpected places, such as on TV, in a movie, or even in real life. Be sure to drop us a line if you spot the beautiful sport of lacrosse in a place you didn’t expect.
This is a special edition of Spotted because instead of just one sighting, we have three! And not only that, there is another connection with the National Football League, and who doesn’t love football?
The first sighting is from the trailer of “Cooties,” we wouldn’t have found this one either if it weren’t for Valts Janis Gratis. Cooties is a comedy about an epidemic that only affects anyone who hasn’t gone through puberty. The virus is literally called cooties and turns kids into zombies.
When a group of teachers and uninfected students try to get out of the school grounds to get away from the infected zombie child, a lacrosse stick happens one of the teachers weapons. (You can see the lacrosse stick at the 1:48 mark of the trailer below.) I can’t wait to see how it’s used.
Spotted numero dos, Matthew Stafford and his Nike Huarache 4s.How awesome is it to see some of the highest paid athletes in the world rocking lacrosse cleats? Now if they would only drop the pigskin for leather and lace…
Matthew Stafford’s cleats also supported a great cause, October’s Breast Cancer Awareness month. Even though the Lions have done poorly so far this year, Stafford’s cleat game is on-point.
The final sighting in this edition is in the State Farm commercial, “Roomates.” A lacrosse stick is in the background of the scene with a family sitting around their kitchen table. The commercial is about a son who has finally moved out of his parents house for the first time. Thanks to Rick Kovalsick (go_lax27) for finding this one.
