Got Philadelphia Wings indoor-lacrosse tickets? If so, there's bad news. The 2008 National Lacrosse League season was canceled yesterday. Because the league's 14 owners and the players' union failed to resolve a long-simmering labor dispute, there will be no pro indoor lacrosse at the Wachovia Center for, well, no one knows how long. So don't show up for the Wings' Jan. 12 season and home opener. "It's tragic," said Russ Cline, the Wings' president and owner, a member of the NLL executive committee and one of the league's founders 21 years ago. "It's a black day," said Dave Succamore, the executive director of the Professional Lacrosse Players' Association.

The Wings have played their final game in Philadelphia. The National Lacrosse League franchise announced plans Friday to move to a new market next season. The team has played in Philadelphia for 28 years, but the economics no longer work, owner and president Michael French said. "The financial model in a market with so many sport and entertainment alternatives has proven to be unsustainable," French said in a statement. "Finding a new venue with new strategic partners was the only way to ensure financial stability.

YOUNG BOYS often have similar dreams about their futures. Many want to be a professional athlete, firefighter, astronaut or soldier. Many of these dreams die when they reach school age, and different career paths are forged for them. For Garrett Thul, more than one of his childhood dreams are coming true. Thul was in second grade when he started playing lacrosse. Now, about 14 years later, he is playing at the highest level, for the Wings in the National Lacrosse League. At the same time, he is an active member in the U.S. Army after graduating from the U.S. Military Academy at West Point in 2013.
