How many of you have been to a Division I lacrosse game? I played defense in college and will tell you that we LOVED the opposing fans trash talk. Like Aaron said, you know you're doing something right when they can't help but say things about you they'd never say in the grocery store or on a bus!
In a physical game like lacrosse (collision sport) where the fans are allowed in similar proximity to the field as basketball, the talk gets you fired up to lay the WOOD on one of "their guys". Best feeling is when their fans stop talking because (a) you're killing them on the scoreboard and (b) you're physically dominating them. A couple big hits, maybe a knock out blow and they usually shut their yappers!
On a side note, too bad the Lax Buckeyes couldn't take down Hopkins....would have been a very strong start to the season and a nice welcoming to the B1G lacrosse conference for the Shit Birds.
