The title of this post may be confusing, because you might not know what a dap is. I didn’t know either, but LXM buds Kyle Harrison and Sam Bradman knew the word. Here, suited up for the Jack Lingo/Fireball squad at Lake Placid, they celebrated a goal with a dap.
Another NFL player wearing lacrosse cleats, again from tipster Ty Stauffer! Looks to be red and white Huarache 3s for this Arizona Cardinals player. By the looks of it, it’s cornerback Patrick Peterson, #21 for the Cards.
If Chesapeake wants a shot at the title, Kip Turner will have to be on point his weekend, even when shots go wide. WARNING: There be GIFs ahead!
It’s time. We’ve been teasing you with clips from The Lacrosse Network’s Team TLN for a few weeks, and now we have a full four minutes of action from our tournament at the Orange County Great Park at the beginning of August.
Last week the MLL tested yellow and white balls rather than their usual orange ones, and the conversation heated up on twitter with #CanYouSeeMeNow. But did you know the discussion STARTED on our forums? Okay, the discussion has been going on for awhile, but it recently started up again right before the MLL’s most recent testing of different colored lacrosse balls. Here’s what the LAS community had to say.
When Casey Powell tweets about Paul Rabil tweeting about John Grant, Jr. … there’s just too much talent in one tweet thread to be ignored. It turns out Junior made an awesome menu item, the Legendary Mammoth Burger, named of course for his NLL team, at the Hard Rock Cafe in Denver.
Sometimes, you just need a nice, clean time and room goal in your day. Nothing flashy about this one, just a skip pass to a set-your-feet-and-rip-it from Team TLN middie and Southland Lax alum David Lee.
As a sponsor of boys and girls lacrosse at the 2013 JCC Maccabi Games, Israel Lacrosse hosted a clinic in between games to expose people who had never seen lacrosse before to the sport. Israel Lacrosse brought in former Dartmouth and Long Island Lizards goalie Andrew Goldstein so that everyone at the clinic could take some shots against a great keeper!
One of my fellow attackmen on Team TLN is Kyle Peterson (San Marcos ’13). Kyle is a pretty cool guy, and he was a prolific scorer in his two years of college ball. Last season, he led MCLA Division II in points per game, with a whopping 8.5 a contest and over 100 points on the season. Kyle showcased his skills with Team TLN with this slick backhanded flip goal on the crease.
Last weekend’s Hounds vs. Bayhawks game was a good one, with the Hawks holding on for a two goal lead and establishing the matchups for the playoffs. Photographer Craig Chase was on hand to take in the game, and he got a great one of Loyola Greyhounds grads Eric Lusby and Josh Hawkins, both of the MLL’s Charlotte Hounds.
Reader Jarred sent in this week’s spotting of a lacrosse stick in a Brand Saver coupon book! I wonder if there’s a good coupon that Warrior Cobra on the cover?
This week a discussion has been taking place about whether or not player size determines ability or potential. While overall the sentiment seems to be that if you work hard it doesn’t matter, some people seem to think that it DOES affect the recruiting process.
Heeyoung Leem, one of the FOGOs on the Team TLN team I played on last weekend, rocked a GoPro in some of our games and got some great footage. The camera falls off right away in the first game, and is picked up by the ref – all hilariously caught on camera. Hee strapped on the GoPro for another game and caught footage of our warmups and some of the game.
There were multiple Tweet of the Week nominees this week. I thought I had picked a winner twice before I got to this gem, so I thought it would be fair to link Rosie’s guac-filled tweet about The Lacrosse Network’s MLL Hangout and the Bucket Helmet’s keen MLL observation. The winner, though, goes to one of the best tweeters in the game, and he speaks the truth.
Most lacrosse players know how important cross-sport training can be, whether lacrosse is your primary sport or not. This week’s spotting, sent in by LAS reader Eric Ochoa, supports that claim, in the form of WWE star Mick Foley.
If the title of this post alone didn’t intrigue you, I’m not sure what will. This past weekend, I suited up with Team TLN of The Lacrosse Network, and Salisbury long pole Knute Kraus made me look really good after I fed him this ball.
Here’s a great shot captured by TLN’s Contest Colin. The player pictured is Southland Laxer Knute Kraus (Salisbury ’15), and not only is he rocking a jammy pack pre-game, but the Orange Balloon is prominently featured in the background.
This week, I’ve stumbled upon something originally posted June 1st! Even though it’s a few months old, there have been various replies this week to the post, which itself has a very catchy ring to it. It’s the FOGO Head Thread.
This week, our Tweet of the Week comes from lacrosse legend Mark Millon. He posed an interesting question on Twitter which I then relayed to @LaxAllStars, but I think that it’s a great question that deserves more discussion.
