With the National Lacrosse League's 2014 season starting in just a couple weeks, it's time to look back at the last season and reflect on the great plays that make indoor lacrosse the best spectator sport ever (in my opinion, at least).
As I demonstrated at one point last year, the action is so exciting in a typical NLL game that a great highlight package can be put together using clips from a single game. As a result, trying to distill an entire season into 15 plays is a challenge, and it means spending some time hunting down the best of the best.
The good news is that the NLL has done a very good job of providing highlights on its You Tube page, making my task a little less intimidating. In fact, their crop of highlights is so good that I found myself unable to trim it to 10 highlights, which is why you're looking at a Top 15.
Going through all the highlights, it would be easy to just pick all the across-the-crease dive plays and call it a day, but I wanted to make sure there's a variety of sweet plays, so I made sure to give props to big saves, big hits and great passes as well.
So without further ado, let's dig into the NLL's Top 15 Plays of 2013. And if you think I missed something, feel free to let me know in the comments.
