I love writing about sports I’ve never encountered before. The research (i.e. reading the Wikipedia article), the preparation (i.e. watching a YouTube video or two), it all makes me feel like I’m developing further as a sports writer, not just using the same tricks over and over again.
So needing a live story for this week’s 52 Games before heading to bars for the next few weeks for postseason college basketball games, I chose BU’s women’s lacrosse game Saturday against Notre Dame.
