Add this to the list of..

Add this to the list of places that you should not choose to drive to on a Saturday afternoon in the summer time. The place? Hofstra University, in Hempstead, NY.  We drove from Manahawkin, NJ to Hempstead NY to watch a MLL lacrosse game. It was only 115 miles. When we drive to Annapolis to see a game the trip is 190 miles (each way, of course).  My DW, DS3 and I went to see the Long Island Lizards play the Boston Cannons.  The ride sucked. There is no other way to describe it. I hope to never make that drive again. The trip to Annapolis takes just as long and is not anywhere near as stressful.

Boston jumped out to a 6 to 1 lead at the end of the first quarter. By half time the lead was dow to 6 to 4. The final score had Long Island winning 14 to 9, I think.  The game was good. The fans were Long Island fans. We love them when they go home after their vacations.  The announced attendance was about 4500 fans. When we went to the two games in Annapolis last year, the attendance was over 8000 at each game. Long Island needs to do some more work and get the fans in the seats.

DS3 met up with two lady friends from college at the game. They did not just bump into each other. The kids made plans Friday night when we decided to go to the game on Saturday. I have some stories about Saturday that I will save for Sunday’s blog. It is Sunday already and I am going to bed.
