No, I’m not talking literally. This is more of a figurative work of art. A masterpiece painted by a High School senior from upstate NY with his lacrosse stick. Gale Thorpe – son of lacrosse legend Regy Thorpe – who will be dressing up for the Syracuse Orange next year – stuck one of the filthiest goals you will ever see (on any level) last week. And by filthy I mean awe-inspiring.
This, to me, is a thing of beauty. Something that most people can’t appreciate because they don’t realize how hard it is to achieve. A play like this is why lacrosse is the greatest sport on the planet.
