Well, today is ‘Flashback Friday’, or #FBF on social-media lingo. As the Lake Placid tournament starts next week, I’m reminded about a certain picture, instead of a game.
I remember dreading the 8:30am start. It was just way too early to play lacrosse. I wanted to go back to bed, eat a long breakfast and watch TV. But, while the parking lot was slowly being filled and players making their way to the their fields, a mist and heavy fog dominated the setting. It was quiet, nobody talked.
I took out my smartphone and started to take some random pics.
That was when one of my teammates yelled out loud, “Hey, take a pic of this!” Arms up, holding his sticks, and carrying his gear, he followed, “Boys, it’s early but let’s be thankful we get to play some lacrosse, today!”
And that line sealed it. It defines the moment, and the moment we love. Hope to see you at Placid!
