Pressler's rep may not be all the way back, but this should help:


Best of luck Coach!

After all the criticism he had to put up with, I am delighted that he has received this recognition. I am sure he will do an outstanding job, just as he did at Duke.

That's pretty cool. I've never followed LAX much, but I did know Duke had a good coach. Regardless of whether it is right or wrong for him to be no longer at Duke, it's nice to see him move on to better things as he has done.

What countries other than the USA field a lacrosse team?

21 nations competed in 2006:

The final standings were:

1. Canada
2. USA
3. Australia
4. Iroquois Nation
5. England
6. Japan
7. Ireland
8. Germany
9. Finland
10. Italy
11. Scotland
12. Netherlands
13. Wales
14. Latvia
15. Czech Republic
16. Denmark
17. Spain
18. South Korea
19. New Zealand
20. Hong Kong
21. Bermuda

Although Iroquois Nation is not really a "country" ;) I guess Hong Kong isn't a nation either, though, technically....But they have their own Olympic team, I believe.

You can try to keep it down (and try they did, without reason), but the cream always rises to the top.
