Editor’s Note: While there have been some high profile stories of NCAA lacrosse players in Iraq, there had only been one other mention in the news of an MCLA player overseas (Conner Zwinggi from Oklahoma).

I’ve heard about the Fellowship of Christian Athletes for just about as long as I’ve played sports. I was under the impression that it was just another Christian Sunday School, but it used sports as the classroom (presumably mass appeal sports like football, basketball, and baseball). Little did I know that they also contribute to growing the game of lacrosse…
Scoping out the recently added lax vids on YouTube and I found this kid. I’m guessing he’s from Canada because of a slight accent (might be making that up) and the name of the shaft he’s sporting.
In addition to inspirational and witty commentary on lax and pop culture, I think we might be able to add voice of reason when it comes to quality TV shows. After listening to 412′s review of Damages on FX, I decided to check it out and see if he really knew what he was talking about.
We all know the economy has seen better days, and with belts tightened it’s extra tough to squeeze some bucks out of Aunt Dorothy and Uncle Frank for your team’s fundraising efforts. ENTER DEMOLITION.

Looking through last week’s Sports Illustrated on the subway, I saw some pictures of the Montreal Canadiens and noticed the Warrior logo on their gloves and pants. Did anyone else know that Warrior makes hockey stuff?
Congrats are in Order to the Wagner College Men’s Lax team, who broke their 48 game losing streak March 3rd by defeating Presbyterian 12 to 7. The Seahawks’ last win was on May 1, 2005. Although it’s been a long time coming, almost 4 years, I’m sure the ‘Hawks welcome the monkey jumping off their back.
“Why not ask which player can punch Ray Lewis the hardest then run away? Or run down a burning staircase carrying two bucketfuls of kittens? Both test strength, dexterity, poise and character and are likely much better television.”
Everyone knows that the best teams in every sport (the ones with the most scheduling pull) always start their season out with “tune-up” games. Usually it’s against teams from weaker conferences with weaker abilities, but sometimes there’s just a big difference between the top and bottom of in-conference play.
With the MCLA season already underway, the eyes of the lacrosse community now turn to the NCAA ranks, where the last pre-season scrimmages are taking place this weekend in preparation for the 2009 season. Today marks another step forward for LAS as we get an inside look from a very reputable D1 head coach…
Yee Haw! The 2009 season is OFFICIALLY underway, and yesterday was the 3rd official launch day of the new MCLA website. Guess what? It actually happened this time! As many teams prepare to make their first road trips of the season, I’ve decided to provide you with a few crucial rules to live by while bunking at Motel 6 with your teammates…
I watched a great NFL Championship Game last night and ate wings and chilli dogs just like 95.4 Million other red blooded Americans. Similar to last year’s classic game there were ups and downs for both teams; we saw…
