This is straight up like a real life version of Cool Runnings, but instead of bobsledding we're talking lacrosse. The 2014 FIL (Federation of International Lacrosse) World Championship starts today with both the Opening Ceremonies and a rivalry match-up between the United States and Canada. The event takes place every four years and either the US or Canada brings home the gold... and this year, it's held on American soil in Denver. But that's not what most of the chatter is about.
The buzz of this year's championships are all about Uganda Lacrosse. That's right. Just like Cool Runnings , the coach is American. Just like Cool Runnings , the team has faced many hardships getting to this point. But not like Cool Runnings , the team has received nothing but a warm welcome to their first Wold Championship appearance.
