Casey Powell: The Art of Air Gait

If you know me at all, you know that one of the passions of my life, beyond my faith and my family and friends, is lacrosse.  This article I found on "LaxAllStars" is by one of the greatest lacrosse players of all time, Casey Powell, who writes about one of the other greatest lacrosse players of all time, Gary Gait.  It's a great article, and to me, shows the way two of the greats honor the game!

Gary Gait caught a pass behind the cage, revved his engine, and took off like Superman from point behind to dunk the ball over the crossbar like 4th year NBA superstar Michael “Air” Jordan, would dunk a basketball. Gary Gait had tied the game at 2 and woke the spirit of the Orange . . .
