“Back to work, Lax Nation!”
So many big/interesting college lacrosse games are happening this weekend. Finally we get to stop talking and watch some groovy lacrosse action. Here are a few match-ups that have even Broadway Joe (circa 1970) paying attention…
As part of ongoing attempts to improve relations with Iran, the Obama Administration is sending an elite team of international experts a 12-member women’s badminton team to Tehran. Wait…what? Badminton? We should have sent Team USA lacrosse and really blown their minds.
Whether you’re rooting for the Steelers or Cardinals (or just praying they cover the spread), today is the day where people of all ages come together and celebrate a great American tradition…Super Bowl commercials! At least they keep the non-sports fans from complaining too much during the game. Here are a few of our favorites:
Did you know Snuggie has grossed $40 MILLION in 3 months?

Thanks to Matt from LacrosseRecruits.com for the heads up!
In the classic book on strategy, “The Art of War”, Sun Tzu states:
“All warfare is based on deception – when we are near, we must make the enemy believe we are far away; when far away, we must make him believe we are near…appear where you are not expected.”
Tzu must have a fan out in Hampton, N.H. because 17 year old Trevor Leahy has taken “The Art of War” to the rink.
I’ve seen some crazy lifting programs but this one might take the cake.
London Gym Uses Humans as Weights
(via Deadspin) Who wants to spend time lifting heavy pieces of cold metal when you can lift warm bodies instead? That’s the premise behind a new offering from Gymbox in London. The gym has several employees on staff available for you to lift while working out.
I hate it when I get to the gym and there’s ALWAYS a line to bench press the 65 Kg emo guy.
“Mitch Belisle of the Boston Blazers, fresh out of the penalty box, dishes out a massive hit to Jarett Park of the New York Titans in the Blazers home opener at the TD Banknorth Garden.” The helmet flying off really made that hit look huge. Park needs to buckle his lid on a little tighter next time because that was a good, clean hit by Belisle. Big time play but thankfully it didn’t result in a trip to the hospital…
We have the US Lacrosse National Convention, the conference championships in the NFL, and a little minor event happening down in Washington DC with the inauguration of Barack Obama. The notoriously private Tiger Woods is even making an appearance in our nations capital. Golf.com: Tiger Woods: future member of the Obama administration? Tiger Woods will speak at the opening celebration for the inauguration of President Barack Obama on Sunday at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, according to tigerwoods.com. “I am…
First Kobe jumps over a car and now he’s riding a horse and talking about “broken ankle insurance”. These Nike viral videos just keep getting weirder and weirder. I still don’t get where the horse comes into play. Any insights you’d like to share with us? [via Fark]
Forget the old saying “You snooze, You lose” and take a look at what the NBA’s Portland Trailblazers have been doing this season. Instead of adjusting their sleep patterns to match their travels, they are revolutionizing the way teams prepare for road trips by keeping their bodies on “Portland time.”
The Oregonian’s Jason Quick has the story:
At the seed of the changes was Dr. Charles Czeisler, a gray-haired professor who works at Boston’s Brigham and Women’s Hospital and heads Harvard Medical School’s Division of Sleep Medicine. Czeisler, who has also worked with NASA astronauts and the U.S. Olympic Committee, stresses the importance of getting enough sleep each night and keeping the body’s internal clocks in sync by maintaining consistent sleep patterns.
What could this mean for lacrosse teams looking for an edge?
From Peter King’s “Monday Morning QB” 1. Pittsburgh (13-4). Most anticipated championship games of this decade: 1. Indy-New England, 2006; 2. Pittsburgh-New England, 2004; 3. Giants-Green Bay, 2007; 4. Pittsburgh-Baltimore, 2008; 5. New England-Indy, 2003. Next week’s Steelers-Ravens matchup won’t have the shiniest records, but it will have more intensity than any of the other four championship games on the list– and that is saying something. 2. Baltimore (13-5). “We’re the team you don’t want to play right now,” says…
More background on the story behind the video after the jump.
Colin Cowherd on ESPN’s “The Herd” radio program brought our attention to this recent CNN article. Titled “Relationship anxieties to quit worrying about”, it gives women advice and tells them to not worry so much. Sounds harmless right? Wrong. Better listen up All Stars because one bit of advice seemed a little out of place and your “lady friend” might suddenly stop blaming the dog for those unexpected odors. I love a woman who can not only produce a solid…
Great overview of the year in lacrosse from John Weaver over at Re: Lax. Gotta love the example that Gary Gait is for the game. Plus, the MCLA makes an appearence! The year that was 2008 I am not into ranking the achievements of others. So, these great moments of 2008 are in no specific order. Gaits back in the game After Gary Gait, 41, led the Syracuse women’s lacrosse team to the NCAA tournament, he decided to come…
Kinda long but wait for the end when Lil’ Wayne “critiques” the video. Priceless! (Via MAM)

Getting back to work, NFL playoffs style By DJ GalloPage 2 Today is the most depressing day on the American working calendar. Many people are back at work for the first time after the long holiday break. The return is worse for sports fans because the past few days have been an orgy of leisure time, BCS bowls and NFL playoff games. But it’s over. Now we must go back to the grind for the next several months because…
