Brian, Eric, and I were the last staff members to leave the North Elba Athletic Fields yesterday afternoon; by 4 PM the fields were cleaned, equipment was stored, and the main tent was emptied out. We got back to Oswego around 8 PM after an uneventful ride home through Saranac Lake, Tupper Lake, Cranberry Lake, and Watertown.

Thoughts for this article were swimming around in my mind, and then Brian started talking about what he was going to write in HIS Lake Placid blog. It seems that now we have more than one lacrosse writer in the house! In the following paragraphs, I steal only a few of his ideas . . .

For a select group of people however, the mention of Lake Placid reminds them of a particular sport which has never been played as an Olympic event- lacrosse.
