[Doriana] Lax is Life

Postby Doriana » Mon Jan 30, 2017 6:14 pm

Philipp showed me a youtube video. "If he was on your team", I said jokingly, "you guys would have to do a looot of push-ups."

Philipp = H/A/M
I = yours truly
he = H/T/M, although H/A/M would work too

This is a lacrosse-related puzzle. However, no in-depth knowledge of lacrosse rules or terminology is needed to solve it.

Were the pushups part of training? As a type of punishment?
Was the video of somebody playing lacrosse? Doing pushups?
Arm strength relevant?

Is Carl well known among lacrosse players? I don't know if "well known" is the best way to describe it. The video in question has popped up on several lacrosse pages. lacrosse aficionados? See previous question in Germany? He's from the US, but I don't know how well-known he is over there

Is Carl breaking some lacrosse rules on the video? Is he doing an exercise that is discouraged to be done in your team?

Is what he does directed towards: the ball? His team? The opponent? The spectators? The judge? Himself? No-one? Does he do it after a particular thing happens in the game? During? Right before? Can it be done in other ball games? Is it considered poor sportsmanship?

He does the relevant thing several times throughout the video in different situations Can it be done in other ball games? Something similar can be done in field hockey and ice hockey, but I don't know if it's also discouraged in these sports Is it considered poor sportsmanship? No

Time for the

********SPOILER********

The player-coaches of our men's team make the entire team do 10 push-ups when any player holds his lacrosse stick with one hand. So when Philipp showed me this video of Miles Moscato, a lacrosse player born with one hand, I joked that they would have to do a lot of push-ups if Miles was on their team.

Well done, Grip, RedWine and Galfisk for the groundwork, and Balin for the solve!
