Indoor lacrosse team relocates: to California. I didn't know the game was big in California, or really any place besides upstate New York, Long Island, NY Hudson Valley, Jersey and Maryland; but with this move California has two pro indoor teams.

Well I was just referring to the U.S. BTW, was that the first, professional or otherwise, lacrosse post in the history of SportsFilter?

We can use more Lacrosse posts, of course, I think that it has come up before. I didn't know about indoor Lacrosse. If Phoenix picks up that Columbus franchise, I might try to drive up and watch. Phoenix is perfect for air-conditioning enhanced sports.

I mentioned the NLL back here, but I think this is the first thread. I catch some of the Rock games when they're on TV. It's a fun game to watch. I've been meaning to catch a game live, but I haven't really bothered -- they routinely sell out Maple Leaf Gardens here anyway (that's 16+ thousand people per game).
