Our city has had a team (Edmonton Rush) in the National Lacrosse League for about 4 or 5 years, and we finally went out to see them play. There's a sign in the arena that says "it's alot like hockey, but played with balls!" Man, these guys are tough! Hitting each other with their crosse seemed the norm. It was so fun to watch, and my youngest son seemed to enjoy the Crush dancers almost more than the game!
