Hello World! This is my first post on LacrosseAllStars.com and I am fired up about it. This site has been ragin’ for almost a year now and is beginning to draw some serious attention from the lacrosse world. I’m going to be ranting about all kinds of topics, hopefully centered around lacrosse, but to begin I’d like to talk about how I became acquainted with the greatest team sport known to man.

Yesterday, your intrepid LacrosseAllStars Co-Founders found themselves in a dark basement filled with a bunch of generally white guys between the ages of 20 and 40. Was it an AA meeting? Not this time…and our underground fight club meets on Thursday nights so that could only mean one thing…
WGN-TV Reporter Pat Tomasulo thinks kids these days are soft and to prove it he’s going to lay down the law. Oh, who cares if the child’s mother gets upset? Pat Tomasulo doesn’t feel your human emotions. He’s a warrior sent back in time to teach the world how men should act… one sobbing pre-schooler old at a time.
The coverage of lacrosse on ESPN and ESPN 2 is so minuscule that people still ask “what sport is that?” when they see highlights. I would like to see Sportscenter regularly highlight all top 20 D1 games, expand lacrosse knowledge and help it become a mainstream sport.
Bill Tierney, Jason Lamb, and now Flip Naumberg. The coaching carousel is in full motion right now in LaxNation. The long time CSU coach announced on his always entertaining “Flip’s Journal” Blog that he is stepping down as head lacrosse coach of the Rams.
This Week’s GET JACKED! - Scott is back with a workout article perfect for staying in shape over the summer. If you can’t always make it to the gym, you’re going to need a simple, effective way to stay in peak condition. Welcome to Kettleball Workouts 101 with your video professor Scott Umberger.
If you are a high school lacrosse player or parent then this is the podcast for you. Chris Meade, CEO of LacrosseRecruits.com, stopped by our HQ for a lively discussion of the recruiting process and how to get your name in front of college coaches.
You heard right LaxNation, LacrosseAllStars.com gets a shout out in this months issue of Lacrosse Magazine (a publication of US Lacrosse). Look for us under the ‘Quote Of The Week’ section.
“Coach that is your first and final warning,” This phrase has become commonplace at most sporting events across the United States. The frequency of statements like this from officials isn’t from ill tempered coaches; but from lack of game knowledge, experience, and maturity it takes to correctly officiate a sporting event.
Our Strength Coach, Scott Umberger, has talked about Nicky Polanco and his intense workout regimen in past columns. Long story short: Polanco is one bad mamma jamma and the fiercest player in the MLL. This video proves it…
“Neither rain, nor snow, nor sleet, nor hail shall keep the postmen from their appointed rounds.” The game of lacrosse might as well steal this motto from the Postal service because, unlike baseball, lacrosse games are played during every kind of weather (minus lightning of course).
Add this video to the list of things you would never see on a lacrosse field. I’m not sure which is worse: this flopping travesty or the video of baseball players doing the macarana. Other sports should be ashamed of themselves. Tsk Tsk.
It’s Memorial Day Weekend and that can mean only one thing…the biggest lacrosse weekend of them all has finally arrived. Who’s going to take home the hardware at Gillette Stadium? Cvas is at the event and is going give you the inside scoop with live tweets.

Practice started at 6:45 PM and as the clock approached 7:05 one of my most promising players approached me with a scared look on his face…
In case you missed it during the Syracuse romp over Maryland, Terps Goalie Brian Phipps was so hopping mad after a non-call by the refs that he ripped his ACL in two. I guess that’s one way to show ‘em, Brian! Swallow sadness…Like A Boss
