    it was a joke ahha even though rugby has been one of the club sports for like 8 years. there has only been a team only 2 years. so not enough intrest is my thinking.

    This probably isn't a sport, but I go to sword wars, where you build a weapon out of PVC and padding and duct tape, and the have these awesome sword fights with them. That's a combat sport! I also take fencing, and I used to take Shotokan karate.

    They have a rugby club (men's and women's) at my university. They tried to get me to join the women's team and I signed up for it but they never sent out the email...oh well.

    rugby is awesome! I'll have to say though that I like the shape of the Merkin football much better. So basically street football is the best.

    i'm in Cali. Lotta people here haven't heard of lacrosse, and I don't even know how to play it. Guess football is too big over here.

    Btw, anyone else here a lefty? This will create interesting problems for me boxing.

    Should work to your advantage if you learn how to block. Most righthanded people (i.e. most people) have never fought a lefty.

    Thats true. Most of the class has zero experience like me so I don't think it will matter much at least in the first few weeks.

    Main thing that I see is that since a righty vs a lefty would be lined up like this /\ as opposed to this // certain punches will have to be changed because both of our jabbing gloves will be aligned with each other. Supposedly if you get your foot on the outside from here a cross is something neither person(but particularly the righty if he hasn't fought lefties much) isn't really ready to defend.

    yeah, the west is slowly catching on to lacrosse...slowly...

    I think Denver College is the westward most college to have LAX as a sport with scholarships.
