Lacrosse is about as foreign to me as Harry Potter’s Quidditch … but almost as intriguing — I mean it’s a rather intense game like soccer but played with sticks … and while wearing a skirt. Well, I guess it’s just girl lacrosse players that wear the skirts, no?
The day’s main event is a collegiate match pitting Michigan (the returning Men’s Collegiate Lacrosse Association national champion) against Oregon at 7 p.m., and for local lacrosse action see SMU vs. Texas A&M there at 4:30. There are several other boys high school matches earlier that day — no skirts— and admission is $10-$15.
