Lacrosse: Buffalo Bandits forward John Tavares tops all-time NLL record.: The 39-year-old surpassed Gait's record with four goals on Saturday in Buffalo's 17-13 win over New York. Tavares now holds the National Lacrosse League's golas record with 597. In the other NLL game this weekend Toronto Rock outlasted the Edmonton Rush 14-9.

The amazing thing about Lacrosse players is that they really do it for the love of the sport. Their salaries are poor and often they need "real" jobs on the side to pay their bills. John Tavares, for example, was a math teacher at my high school (as well as coach for its lacrosse team, naturally). I never had him but some of my friends say he was a good teacher. Now, also an NLL record holder. Oh yeah, his nephew's a pretty good hockey player too.

I saw the Bandits' dance team perform today at my daughter's cheerleading/dance competition. They were very hot. I apologize, but that's all I can add that's remotely close to lacrosse. Living near Buffalo, though, I've long followed Tavares' career in highlights and newscasts. Congratulations, John. Wish you could score some goals for the Sabres.
