This is the face-off - or whatever you call it - at the beginning of the game. Weirdest position in which to begin a game I've ever seen. Alex is on the left, in green shorts and white jersey.
Alex is number 15 - see his cute ponytail? One of the other lacrosse mothers (who doesn't know me) said "That number 15 needs a hair cut!" I just laughed. She's welcome to her opinion.
See? Whacking each other with sticks. That's what the whole game is all about.
One of the things I don't like about this game is that you can't see his handsome face. Although, I do appreciate the helmet protection. He gets hit in the head about 10 times per game.
Why is there only one of him and about a million of them? I don't care if a bunch of them ARE standing on the sidelines. Still - where are the rest of the Vikings?
His position is called Midi - which covers the whole field. They always put him in this spot, usually center midi, because he runs. He's the fastest sprinter on the team. Now, if he can learn to hang onto the ball when he's running...
