Whenever I get a chance to visit my parent’s in Manhattan, I usually like to search for things from my childhood and/or past that they kept. On a recent stop over for dinner, I searched for my Bacharach lacrosse helmet a.k.a. “the brain bucket” that I used in boarding school (1992-1996). I knew they still had it from numerous visits before and I wanted to take some pics with the blackberry to post up.
The classic Bacharach helmet. I think it was nicknamed “The Baltimore Classic”??
The “mud-flap” throat guard.
Yup, I was a “sticker for stickers!” Kinda’ like a NASCAR look on the dome!
The South Kent School in South Kent, CT – home of the Cardinals! Had to rep NYC somewhere, hence the Statue of Liberty decal.
The double-foam piece on the “grill”! Before the days of “helmet-tilt” (now) this was for intimidation purposes!
To my surprise, one of my BEST finds up to date, they still kept my ORIGINAL STX Goalmaster! Notice, the “dowel” throat/shaft and the red color before the sticks became standard factory colors of white/black.
My “glory days”.
