Toronto Rock 13, Buffalo Bandits 9, Scotiabank Arena, Toronto, ON

Gord and I are season ticket holders for the Toronto Rock lacrosse team games ... the Rock is a professional lacrosse franchise in the National Lacrosse League (NLL).  This is our seventh year going to the games and our sixth year having seasons tickets.

This afternoon the Rock were hosting the Buffalo Bandits.  Our friend, Trish, joined us.

We got there early enough to watch the Rock players warm up.

Here are Gord and I.

Scotty Newlands sang the national anthems.

The Rock players huddled before the game started.
