Johns Hopkins Players Celebrate In Front of Their Loyal Fans

You don’t hear too much about lacrosse fans, and that’s OK with them.

After all, it’s the more visible, more prominent and more vocal fans of a particular sport that seem to attract the attention, but not always in a good way.

Top 4 College Lacrosse Rivalries

The sports world is full of teams that are perpetually at odds with each other. It certainly makes good theater, as fans can get especially pumped when “their” team takes on “those other guys” and get even more excited when “they” win.
