Lacrosse Warrior

Yes. Me. Well, not really.

My sister talked me into joining her lacrosse team this year. It seemed like a GREAT idea a couple of months ago when I registered. Right now, it doesn't seem like such a great idea. Our first game is tonight. I have NEVER played lacrosse. I just got my lacrosse stick last night and tried catching the ball etc. It is not going to be pretty.

I feel like a kid again. Not in a good way. In the way where I was shy and unsure about joining the kids I didn't know in a game I knew I wouldn't be great at. I hope they don't laugh at me, I hope they like me, I hope I don't get killed by the hard (did I mention it is a REALLY hard ball?) ball that will be whipped at me at very fast speeds to which I am supposed to catch it in this really small basket attached to the end of a stick that offers me very little protection.

I am afraid, I don't feel like a lacrosse warrior, I feel like a lacrosse wimp. Stay tuned tomorrow to see how it turned out. If I don't post you will know I have been attacked and am injured from one of those lacrosse warrior princesses. Eeeek!

I have never even heard of lacrosse until I moved down to the states. People just don't play it up here
