Our man, Edward Lee from the Baltimore Sun, with a great post on the upcoming Ravens vs. Patriots game. Post includes lots of great quotes from Bill Belichick about his love for lacrosse, and from coach John Harbaugh of the Ravens who has started to fall in love with the game as well. I highly recommend you check out the full article.
The Ravens and New England Patriots have met eight times since 2009, including four times in the playoffs. Bill Belichick might prefer not to see the Ravens that often in the postseason, but one thing the Patriots coach does enjoy is talking lacrosse when he hops onto a conference call with Baltimore reporters.
“It’s a great sport,” he said Wednesday morning. “Obviously, it’s such a great part of Baltimore and Maryland tradition. Crabs and lacrosse, that’s part of the big culture there. The new people that move into the area, they pick up on it pretty quickly and enjoy it and embrace it and see the way that the game is spread throughout this country and internationally really.
"But it’s now become much more of a national sport especially with Denver winning and the world championships a couple years ago out in Colorado. I was fortunate enough to grow up in that area and have been able to enjoy so much of lacrosse and all that goes with it. What a great spring sport tradition it is in that area.”
