A few weekends back, I spent the entire day outside of Los Angeles for the final LXM PRO event of the 2013-2014 season. With the event also came the final Adrenaline tournament of the year. But what is it that keeps bringing teams back to ADRLN tournaments? Here’s what players and coaches have to say.

The New York Times crossword puzzle is a daily activity for some, and the paper is read by people online all over the world – so when something is in it, there is a good chance a lot of people see it. Good thing that “lacrosse ball” was the answer to 61 down clue “It’s caught by a stick on a field” back on December 1st, 2013, and that reader Leslie spotted it!
The Denver Outlaws did a photo shoot with puppies. Jeremy Sieverts, Chris Bocklet, and eight puppies. That’s all you need to know. Click to see more puppy lacrosse photos.
Have you ever coached a youth team? It sometimes can be challenging, and usually challenges coaches in different ways than an older team would. So what is the best way to coach youth players and teams?
The entire sports world seemingly has zeroed in on one big storyline in the NFL. Richard Sherman’s interview, and the media fallout thereafter – which Connor examined yesterday – has intensified the Broncos offense versus Seahawks defense Super Bowl script. As lacrosse tough guy Tucker Durkin puts it…
The Chicago Bears just missed out on the NFL playoffs this season, but while they were playing, wide receiver Brandon Marshall was wearing some awesome custom Huarache 4s. Is that fur inside? If I played ball somewhere as cold as the Windy City, then I’d want that fur in my cleats too.
If you haven’t seen this shot by now, you’ve been really out of the loop the past few days. John Grant Jr. scored a goal for the Colorado Mammoth that many are calling the best goal of all time. He actually scored on this same shot two seasons ago as well, but the consensus is that Junior outdid himself with this year’s version.
Tomorrow’s LXM PRO Los Angeles event marks the final game of the season for the LXM PRO. In Connor’s preview of the game, he takes a look at who the league scoring champ might be when all is said and done. One of our LAS Community members was thinking along the same lines, wondering who you’d pick for the LXM PRO season MVP.
In my opinion, there are two indisputable legends of the indoor game currently playing in the NLL. The first is John Grant Jr. The second scored an OT winner for the Buffalo Bandits last weekend while playing against the Philadelphia Wings. His name is John Tavares.
Last week we brought you Two Bills, Two Huaraches, and this week we have Two Lions, Two MORE Huaraches. A few weeks ago spotter Brandon noticed that Detroit quarterback Matthew Stafford and center Dominic Raiola were both rocking turf Huaraches.
By now you probably know that the US Lacrosse Convention, better known as #LaxCon, was in Philadelphia last weekend, and anyone who’s anyone in lacrosse was there. But after a grand old time, the inevitable end had to come…
Is there such thing as a “perfect pocket?” That’s the question that has arisen in this week’s Forum Friday. The poster really wants to know what the characteristics of a perfect pocket are, so we would have to assume that they think there is such thing as a perfect pocket. However, instead of a pocket that is perfect in terms of working for everyone, I think the question may be looking for more general qualities.
LXM PRO 858 in San Diego was a thriller last weekend, with Team STX edging out a 16-15 win over Maverik United on a Max Ritz goal with two seconds left. Earlier in the game, Sam Bradman put Team STX on his back with four first half goals, including what was just about the most beautiful low release shot I have ever seen. It was an on the run riser, and Kyle Harrison definitely appreciated the shot as much as I did.
We’ve had a ton of Huarache spotting so far this NFL season, and we aren’t done yet! Although the Buffalo Bills didn’t make the playoffs this year, they did have a few players wearing Nike lacrosse cleats.
Sometimes, you have to do whatever it takes to get your lacrosse in for the day. In this week’s Photo of the Week, we have Liv Lax of Los Angeles driving goals on the highway in a U-Haul bed.
