(it’s another totally butch photo-op for NYC’s most rugged Mayor since Ed Koch)

Apparently, it wasn’t enough to have the hockey and basketball operations at MSG sullied by sexual scandal. Now the Garden has to bring in the hottest arena attraction this side of Roller Hockey, Indoor Lacrosse! From the New York Post’s Dan Martin.

The National Lacrosse League has been around for 20 years and finally has a team in New York City.

Kind of.

The new team, which will begin its first season in the indoor league in January, will play at least four of its eight home games at Madison Square Garden. The sites for the other four games remain up in the air, depending on the NHL schedule.

But the good news for potential fans of the new franchise is that although its home base is at the Garden, the team isn’t owned by James Dolan. Instead, the owners are made up of a group of Wall Street bankers, including Gary Rosenbach.

In other lacrosse news, wire services reported yesterday that Colin Finnerty (above, one of the Dookies recently charged with rape, was convicted of misdemeanor assault in an unrelated case heard in Washington D.C. Strangely, neither the Chicago Tribune nor Fox News thought it was worth mentioning that Finnerty’s victim characterized the attack as a gay bashing.

Finnerty was sentenced to 6 months probation. Never let it be said they don’t take hate crimes seriously in Georgetown.
