Congrats, Peer Fish. And you too, Covington Stanwick. Inside Lacrosse announces the 2012 All-Name Lacrosse Men's and Women's teams.

Inside Lacrosse puts its credibility on the line by snubbing Penn State sophomore, Tom LaCrosse.

If your name was Ronjohn Dadd, do you think you'd make your son a junior?

Semi-related: when I first started playing lacrosse, like every kid who is incredibly passionate about Some New Thing for ten minutes, I started watching indoor lacrosse on those high-number channel regional sports networks they used to beg you to take. I fell asleep in front of the first game I watched and came to in the middle of play trying to figure out what the hell move or technique a "Red Arrow" was, given I'd never heard of it after my extensive 3 weeks of practice.

It took me two quarters to figure out lacrosse was popular among Native Americans.

Oh, wait. Ronjohn Dadd is a junior. It's not Ronjohn Dadd, Jr.

I bet Ronjohn names his kid Tom. (Or possibly Caldwell, Sether or Baxter.)

I bet Ronjohn names his kid Tom.

I'll bet a year's club dues that he goes with RJ III.

RJ III known as Trey

Also a very good friend of mines little brother was on the 2000-2010 All-Decade Name Team.

It's funny because it's white people.

It's good to know rich white people still have a sport they can call their own (besides Polo, anyway).

actually one of the things I find interesting is the large proportion of people on this list whose colleges and high schools read pretty middle class despite the uber pretentious names.

I mean you sort of have to know how to decode things, but a kid who went public school and then Wagner as a FOGO is probably not some super rich white kid

(of course when you go St. Lawrence and have the same last name as a political dynasty. well yeah. I can also make a few assumptions about you)
