geoff snider has apparently called it a day after the FIL. if there was any player with his intensity, i have not seen it. geoff was too talented just to be a fighter. i think his contribution to canada in the FIL when it was played in ontario might be his greatest feat of inspiration and intimidation. the usa had no counter for him at all. the best word to describe american field lacrosse that day was shell shocked. geoff was among the early pioneers that built jamie munro's denver pioneers into a magnet school beyond the hotbeds of long island, upper new york and baltimore. but what he brought to philadelphia. he might had been born in alberta but he was born to play in philadelphia. how tough was geoff, remember he played with a busted windpipe. he made coaches scratch their heads trying neutralize him. any ground ball within 5 yards was fair game, and we won more of them than he lost. i hope that geoff gets to make an appearance in philly this winter and gets the attention that he deserves. it was never dull with geoff around.
