Yeah, with stuff like Track & Field, Swimming & Diving, etc, you can at least see the entirety of the event in your field of vision. 

You don't have to pick one specific part of the course to zero in on to the detriment of everything else that is going on, like cross country and golf.

I'd be lost at a lacrosse game/match/meet.  I know it's a legitimate sport, but other than knowing that some spheroid needs to go into some sort of goal, I'd be clueless.

Heck, it's hard for me to follow a rugby match, and I went to several of them in which my oldest nephew played. Even the wives and friends of the players couldn't explain the rules.

Swimming is the worst.  It is quite uncomfortable unless you're dressed appropriately.  The ambient sound in those places is not pleasant.    However, the pole vault is the single worst event.   It lasts forever and there's so many misses one must sit through.  I otherwise really enjoy T&F meets.

Lacrosse, Soccer, Ice Hockey and Field Hockey, etc are all games that are based upon a similar premise to one another. Start the action at midfield. Then the offense tries to put the ball in the goal, while the defense and the goalie try to prevent that from happening on their own end. 

A familiarity with one of those four games should equip a fella with enough knowledge to kinda sorta follow the others, at least on a macro level.

In those games, it's what are and are not fouls, and what other things cause play stoppages, that can make them hard for the uninitiated to figure out.

AUSTIN, Texas -- Former Nebraska wrestling standout Jordan Burroughs defeated Zahid Valencia in the main event of FloWrestling's Burroughs vs. Valencia card on Saturday, Nov. 14.

Wrestling at 185 pounds, Burroughs overcame a four-point deficit in the second period to beat Valencia 8-5. Valencia, a two-time NCAA champion at Arizona State, was first on the board, scoring two takedowns in the first period and entered the break with a 4-0 lead. Burroughs answered in the second period, scoring a takedown twenty seconds in to cut Valencia's lead in half. Valencia earned a step out point to bring his advantage to three points, but that was not enough to stop the Olympic and World champion's comeback. Burroughs went on to score two more takedowns and two step out points to secure the victory.

Also picking up a win in the event was Nebraska three-time All-American and second-year volunteer assistant coach Tyler Berger. He met Ohio State's Sammy Sasso in the third match of the undercard, earning an 8-2 victory. Berger controlled the first period, scoring two takedowns for a 4-0 lead at the break. He gave up just one takedown to Sasso in the second period but responded with two more of his own to take the match.
