Toronto Rock at the ACC

anthem

I brought my nephew to a Toronto Rock vs. New England Black Wolves lacrosse game last Friday at the Air Canada Centre. It was our first Rock game and we were not disappointed. The Rock currently have the best record (13-4) in the National Lacrosse League (NLL) and they’ll be playing for the Champion’s Cup in the upcoming NLL Playoffs.

Unlike hockey games, the great thing about lacrosse games is that they play rock music as the game is happening.

Check out this clip of the Rock scoring a goal with The Tragically Hip, Guns N’ Roses and Helix playing in the background:

9,271 fans + Toronto Rock + non-stop rock music = full-on awesome night!

In the end, the Rock defeated the Black Wolves 15-12 and the raucous crowd in attendance celebrated as they poured out of the Air Canada Centre.

If you’re looking for some tuned up action on a Friday or Saturday night, I highly recommend checking out the Toronto Rock. The Rock’s next game will take place on Friday, May 1st at 7:00 PM in Uncasville, Connecticut, where they’ll be taking on the Black Wolves in a re-match. You can catch that game on TSN.

  1. Nice to have other Toronto sports teams in the hunt for a Championship! The Raptors and the Rock help to compensate for our teams of the more leafy variety.

  2. Well-written blog as usual.

    Question: If rock music is played for the Toronto Rock, is rap music played for the Toronto Raptors?
