It has been a little more than two years now that I’ve been submitting articles for LaxPlayground.com, crazy huh? My first article, “10 Reasons Why Babes Love Lax Bros” was the most read article on the site in 2011! In the last two years, I have spent a majority of my time around, analyzing, and even dating a lacrosse players… I certainly take my position here seriously at Lax Playground. So, I only found it fitting to redraft this article with my new found results.
10 Reasons Why Women Love Lacrosse Players
1. The Language
You’d never realize it unless you weren’t a lacrosse player but the sport has a lingo all its own. If you’re interesting in making a fortune, it would be genius to compose a lacrosse language dictionary. Much like how women adore foreign languages and accents, the lacrosse lingo has the same effect. Just a snip of new words I’ve learned over the past years: lettuce, bucket, spoon, twig, wand, chirping, and greaser.
Speaking of lingo, gotta love that flow! Need I say more? I just wanna run my hands through it.
Okay, don’t laugh! Lacrosse players have the best personality of any sport team. Minus the occasional spoiled egg, most lacrosse players are not cocky, arrogant, or rude. Besides always being the life of the party, I know that I can always count on lacrosse players to be easy going and not self conscious about acting like a bunch of lovable fools.
I will never forget watching my first lacrosse game in high school and having no clue what to expect. Obviously, I ended up loving the sport but I was so intrigued by how violent the game was. Really! The amount of blows you guys take from other players either with their bodies or their sticks is INSANE and you take it like a champ. The first time any female witnesses it they’ll never forget it, I never did.
No other sport but lacrosse has it’s own style: pennies, snapbacks, pastel and neon shorts, pulled up nike socks, and wayfarers. I love it! I’ve stole more of my boyfriends pennies and own more Gym Tan Lax tanks than I can even count.
You guys might be psychopath monsters on the field during a game but after interacting with lacrosse players I’ve learned of a completely different side. The number of submitted stories of lacrosse teams around the country playing for a cure or to help raise money to donate to a cause never fails to impress me.
While writing for laxplayground.com I am ALWAYS looking for unique gear and the jerseys that have been submitted to me, to be posted, always amaze me. There are no other sports with jerseys as sick or players as creative to come up with some of these crazy jerseys.
You don’t see decked out baseball bats, footballs, hockey sticks, or basketballs. Laxers dye their gear. Point lacrosse.
9. The Bod
Okay, I shouldn’t even have to mention it and I won’t go into detail but we all know how lacrosse involves and uses every part of your body and it shows.
Hello, what other sport has their own subculture? Even though must of these acclaimed, “LaxBros” don’t even play lacrosse, it’s flattering that these guys wanna be just like you.
