My son has been playing lacrosse for a regional team for about 4 years now. He is heading into his Senior year and is a team Captain. The team has struggled the last couple of seasons with terrible losses and very rare wins. Morale is low. Should he approach the coach of another team, a coach that he plays for in an off-season league, to discuss playing for him in the regular season? Or, should he struggle through what is likely his last season with his current, struggling team? What advice can I give him to help him decide? [more inside]

I love playing (women's) lacrosse, but I'm having some problems. I need help figuring out what I'm doing wrong and how to correct it. General sports-related questions about skill level, competitiveness, and confidence follow. [more inside]
Tell me about La Crosse, WI. [more inside]
I'm most likely going to Clown Camp(!!!) this June in La Crosse, WI. I'd be leaving from Chicago. The best way seems like Amtrak, but I need to be there by 4 and the train doesn't get in until 7. I'll take this back to Chicago, but I need a way to get from Chicago to La Crosse on public transportation. Some options have been a bus from Chicago to Madison and then Madison to La Crosse. I have no familiarity with this area at all. Going on Amtrak the day before is not an option, since I have a wedding the night of the 6 in Chicago! Help please! Also, any tips on clowns/clown camp/clowning/etc. would be appreciated too.
