World Lax championships in Denver RIGHT NOW

Hey just thought I'd take a shot at publicizing an event that I enjoyed today and seems to be getting less attention than I think it deserves: the World Lax championships being held at Dick's Sporting Goods park. I was fortunate to attend a portion of today with a few friends and my son and found myself stunned at how lightly attended.

While I realize everyone may have a little international competition fatigue, it is pretty cool to be in the midst of athletes from so many countries.

The crowds are so small that it makes it enjoyable to wander about and watch different teams play and the odd status of the sports' popularity makes for some matchups that sound strange. Oddly, it feels like a lot of games between hockey countries and soccer countries.

The World championships are only held every 4 years and tickets are CHEAP. My wife surprised me today by picking up tickets for my son and I to the championship game (5th row for $25 apiece).

In the Jamaican bobsled storyline the Ugandan team was enthusiastically supported in their 17-1 loss to Ireland. If you want a Ugandan Lacrosse T-shirt (sure to be the ultimate hipster pick--obviously briefly) you'd better move quick as they were selling them out today.

Other highlights for me today included:

1) Watching Wales beat Russia.

2) Trying to discern between the Belgian and German Flags and Fans.

3) Cringing as pea-sized hail dance off the numerous beautiful Ferrari's (Ferarri? Ferarrus?--not sure on plural).

Lowlight: Having to leave before England (who cruelly oppressor) squared off against the Iriquois team (whom we cruelly oppressed).

And if you make it, consider giving the Solar Roast Coffee truck some business as it is a pretty cool idea and a Pueblo business trying to counteract the traditional Front Range franchise flow and make its way up from Pueblo. is a fan community, allowing members to post their own thoughts and opinions on the Colorado Avalanche and hockey in general.
