Who Knew? Pinnies.

I am at the last lacrosse tournament of the season, (for me) and it is a boy/girl tournament in Brick, NJ- 
Best of the Beach.
Doesn't that sound good?
And it is a wonderful tourney.
I love when I learn something new and I did today.
Apparently, pinnies are very important, collectibles really. Much sought after.
Guys wear them at the beach. They acquire them at camps, steal them from friends or trade them at tournaments.
Hmmmm. I wonder if this could cross over to the girls?
Did you know about this?

I had no idea, but my sister plays lacrosse and seems to own a lot of pinnies, however, I don't think she collects them. My dad used to run track and gave me a lot of his really cool pinnies he used to wear, they are great to work out in

We didn't know they were considered collectible, that's a new one on us!

Hope you are having a fabulous weekend,

Those are classics! I know my son would want one. I love your header. There is a bamboo forest here in Maryland. You can only get there by boat.
I hope you are having a great summer, and are getting some r&r!

Hey do you know where i could purchase one of those college lacrosse pinnies?! :)

I would say on ebay... they are so popular now that no decent laxer would give up their vintage pinnies.
However, soemtimes stores have excess and sell them cheap. you will see less and less of that though. Pinnies R huge right now!
