Ireland's lacrosse team withdrew from an international tournament to give their slot to the Iroquois National's team to play in the tournament instead.

Lacrosse, as you may or may not know, began as a ceremonial sport played by Native American and First Nations tribes (I believe it belonged largely to the Haudenosaunee/ Iroquois Confederacy), and was at one time deeply spiritual but has been soundly ripped away from its roots and its people.

the old memes pain you because for years you have flinched from thinking of them, for years you have kept a taboo, like the respected dead you have refused to speak of them. me, I listen to Never Gonna Give You Up by Rick Astley and Miracles by ICP on a regular basis, and have transcended shame

Like many people my age, PBS played a critical role in my educational development. Until that one day when I learned Carmen Sandiego is apparently in the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean, and according to the host, "we couldn't do nothing about it"?
