Larry Palumbo took in the recent scrimmages between Scotland, Adelphi, and Stony Brook. It’s clear that the English aren’t the only ones testing themselves against top notch college competition, even if they are doing a GREAT job of promotion!

It’s only fall ball, but that doesn’t mean we can’t get excited for some excellent fall ball video! BHSVideoDad is back at it, and covers the big boys from D1 as they play a fall event in Kezar Stadium at the 2013 Fall Classic in San Francisco, CA.
Chris Langton (Melrose, MA), a former standout lacrosse player for Cornell University, has been named to the US Bobsled team as push athlete. He joins 10 others as push athletes and joins his brother, Mike, on the team. Mike was a push athlete in 2010 for the US and was a member of the 2013 World Champion team. Three pilots were also named to the team, round the group out at 14 members.
Brown hosted both the Sankofa Lacrosse Alliance “Ambassadors” team, as well as a team of English National squad hopefuls for three one hour scrimmages. See the excellent photos below from Greg, and expect much more on this interesting event early next week.
The LXM PRO is in Atlanta, GA this weekend as Maverik United tries to even the all-time series with Team STX at three games apiece. I’m assuming you can do basic math, but if you can’t, the above means Mav is 2-3, while STX is 3-2. Most of the games between these two squads have been relatively tight, and both teams are capable of winning on any given day. So what will be the deciding factors in Saturday’s 6:15pm tilt?
Did you miss The Lacrosse Show last night? It was a REALLY good one! We had Carlo Sunseri on as a guest so we obviously spent a good amount of time talking video games! We also hit up the NLL and PLPA collective bargaining agreement, England’s tour of the US, different approaches to fall ball, as well as Maverik’s potential rise (and the Pride of Westchester).
The world famous box lacrosse Stadium in Radotin (Czech Republic) is being torn down, but don’t worry too much, because if we know the Radotin crew as well as we think we do, it will be back, and better than ever! The video above shows the turf through the years, while focusing on the Ales Hrebesky Memorial champions of years past.
Jimmy Lewis is, in my humble opinion, the greatest lacrosse player I know of. I had the luck and honor of being coached by his brother, John Lewis (an Adelphi legend himself) back in high school, so I may be perpetually biased when it comes to holding the Lewis family in such high regard.
Welcome to an epic #TraditionalThursday post! This one is chock full of info, photos, tips, questions, and more. Buckle up the old leather seatbelt, tighten your sidewalls, and get that spool of cross lace ready!
GetBenched has put up three amazing videos featuring Major Indoor Lacrosse League (MILL). The MILL started up in 1987, and is the predecessor to the NLL we all currently know. There was another NLL back in the 70s, which eventually folded before the MILL came into existence. This stuff is pure vintage box lacrosse! Jofa helmets and spandex everywhere!
Scotty Komer is a professional box lacrosse goalie, which means he is from Canada. Being from Canada, it is likely that he played quite a bit of hockey in addition to all that lacrosse. Seeing as Komer looks nothing but natural as the goalie in the above Coke Zero commercial (aside from all the goals he let in), we’d say he definitely played some puck as a kid.
Harvard hosted England Lacrosse last night in an exhibition scrimmage, and already has video highlights up. They also played against St. John’s and Army this past weekend, and there is a quick highlight video from that day as well.
There is something to be said for basic, get-down-to-business apparel, both athletic and otherwise. I don’t mind that there are so many manufacturers of apparel out there, but I am slightly concerned that the focus isn’t where it needs to be most of the time. In fact, I’m pretty sure we’re starting to get to leather jogging pants levels in some cases.
4onetwolax had us racking our brains for a good nominee for a lacrosse themed Burger King “the King” commercial. He came up with three great examples himself and asked others to propose their potential top videos. We have to go with the King starring as Brett Queener with this full field goalie goal.
The final stages of the English National Team selection process for Denver 2014 is nearing completion. To truly test the squad, and see who will make the final cuts, the team has come to the States to take on some top-notch collegiate, and club, competition.
The LXM PRO TOur has been a whirlwind of change and evolution so far, and some people, especially back East, seem to be a little confused as to a number of the details, and even the overall story. To remedy this, the LXM, in conjunction with Adrenaline (an LXM and LAS sponsor), has put together an episodic series of videos which will detail the Tour, and give viewers an in-depth look at what is going on. To get even more in-depth, we sat down with LXM PRO and Adrenaline All-Star, Xander Ritz, and peppered him with questions about the Tour and the video series.
A new sponsor is emerging for one of the professional lacrosse leagues… can you guess which league we’re talking about, and which sponsor we’re hinting at? Here is a little “extra” info, to get you guessing!
The 2014 lacrosse season is really just around the corner, and to get you even more excited, we got some more highlights from Mike Perrino. Last week he wowed us with goals on goals, and this week he has added in some big hits, some great face offs, and a bunch more top notch goals… it’s 2013 in a nutshell!
The 10,000 hour rule is an interesting concept. Malcolm Gladwell raised the idea a number of times in the book Outliers, and the theory basically states than any “master” of a particular discipline has put in at least 10,000 hours of dedicated work to learn and perfect their skill set within that discipline. While the exact number of hours is still up for debate, and further statistical analysis is needed, I am confident that the overall point stands: The truly great put in the hours and the effort in order to be truly great.
Did you enjoy Hopkins destroying their alumni team, by an ungodly almost 30 to 2? Looking for a slightly more competitive fall video? Hopkins vs Fairfield has you covered! YouTube user huntva is killing it with fall video. Thank you!
