Countdown to Football Frustration

Next Frustrating Hoops Victory

Next Lacrosse Annihilation

2006 World Lacrosse Championships

Stick happens.
Looking for another event that permits boistious nationlism and the unrequited disdain for other countries? Well, there's a solution: the 2006 World Lacrosse Championships.

Featuring 21 nations and a host of former Syracuse greats, the 2006 World Lacrosse Championships will display the best lacrosse played this summer. The favorites entering the tournament appear to be the United States (gunning for its seventh consecutive title), Canada (boasting some of the world's finest box lacrosse players and arguably the game's finest finisher -- Gary Gait), and Australia (the Aussies have never finished out of the medals).

Plus, this is the only time this year that all three Powell Brothers will grace the field at the same time.

CSTV will apparently provide live coverage of a handful of games on its network and through its streaming video feature on CSTV.com:

LONDON, Ont. and NEW YORK – Lacrosse fans can tune to CSTV and visit CSTV.com to see the action from the 2006 ILF World Lacrosse Championships from London, Ontario, Canada.

The broadcast team for the event features play-by-play personality Jason Chandler and color analyst Paul Carcaterra, a former Syracuse All-American lacrosse player. Throughout the tournament, fans can visit CSTV.com to access the news, results, and analysis from the event.

The 2006 World Lacrosse Championships feature a record 21 international teams, 43 festival teams, and 21 youth teams competing from all over the globe. The tournament begins with games on Friday, July 14 at both TD Waterhouse Stadium and the North London Athletic Fields, wrapping up with the championship game and closing ceremonies on Saturday, July 22 beginning at 3:30 p.m. Games can also be seen on CBC Television. The event is expected to bring more than 100,000 players, coaches, spectators and officials into the London area, with an economic impact in the range of $20 million.

    UPDATE:

    America get trounced 15-9 by Canada in the gold medal game.

    This marks the US's first lost in this competition since 1978 when the Red, White, and Blue got beat by the Canucks 17-16 in OT.

    Uncontrollable weeping can begin right now.
