New Wave’s commercial delivers a sense of what lacrosse is and should always be about. Lacrosse is a way of life that brings people in and acts as a support system. The speech used for the video was given by Sen. Ted Kennedy as a Eulogy for Robert Kennedy in 1968.
New Wave provides an explanation of the video:
Lacrosse, as many of us know, isn’t just a sport. It’s not just a game, it doesn’t end when the clock expires or the whistle blows. It lives in us. It grows with us. Many of the relationships forged through this sport will last us our entire lives. Lacrosse is a way of life. A brotherhood of sorts.

I’m gonna bet not a single New Wave player lives within 20 miles of the City of Chicago yet they try and rep Chicago so hard that it’s nauseating
The speech used was actually spoken by Senator Edward Kennedy as a Eulogy for Robert Kennedy in 1968. The parts of the speech that quoted RFK were actually from his Speech in South Africa in 1966, on the “Day of Affirmation” , a historical milestone in that country’s history. While RFK’s famous Mindless Menace of Violence Speech is inspiring and moving, it was not used for this video.
