It usually waits until the summertime to bubble up, but it's always there, patiently waiting to be addressed: Diversity in college lacrosse. I know about it, you know about it, and I just can't wait until after Memorial Day to deal with it this year: Lacrosse has a serious diversity issue, and until the game includes more ninjas with throwing stars, the game will never truly reflect a sufficient cross-section of these United States of America.
Yes, it's true. You can no longer put your heads in the sand about the fact that college lacrosse -- on the whole -- is grossly underrepresented by ninjas with throwing stars that use smoke bombs to clear the ball with stealth-like agility. It's as if the game of college lacrosse has consciously attempted to keep ninjas with throwing stars that leap from goal to midfield to other goal in two flowing jumps out of the game. This is a serious problem, people, and as each year passes without a single college lacrosse roster featuring a ninja with throwing stars that use katana blades instead of STX crosses, I become more and more enraged at the situation.
Who will be the first to foster ninjas with throwing stars in college lacrosse? Will it be you or you? Or will we all stand together, finally, arm-in-arm and demand that college lacrosse offer more opportunities to ninjas with throwing stars? It's just the right thing to do, you guys.
Anyway, there's one game tonight: Maryland travels to Mount St. Mary's to play cards or something.
