Leap Year Babies are Weird: College Lacrosse Schedule for February 28, 2012

It has to be hard being a leap year baby. Only once every four years do you get to celebrate your birthday on your actual birth date. In all those other years you need to, I assume, celebrate it on February 28th, and that's just sad and disappointing; it's like the majority of your life is lived in an alternate reality.

Plus, all leap year babies are ugly and terrible people. (Probably.)

It's a busy afternoon and evening across college lacrosse, which is odd for a Tuesday. It's like there was a fire sale on games before the start of March. "EVERY GAME MUST GO! IT'S A COLLEGE LACROSSE LIQUIDATION SALE! GET YOUR GAMES IN BEFORE WE FILE FOR BANKRUPTCY ON MARCH 1ST!" I don't know. Whatever.

There are a handful of highlights standing out among the treachery taking place in the majority:

  • Drexel at Villanova: It's the battle for Philadelphia! It's also the third Pennsylvanian school that the Wildcats have played in as many games. This is like a dog taking a squirt on every fire hydrant it sees on its morning walk.
  • Fairfield at Hofstra: This is like The Bourne Supremacy: Good, enjoyable, but you're left wanting a little bit. Regardless, you'll enjoy the broken arms and stuff blowing up all over the place.

And, of course, Wagner is in action tonight. The Seahawks travel to Lafayette and will hopefully, with the grace of the worst possible luck, come out of it with its Wagner Cup and Reverse Survivor title chances in great shape.
