Major League Lacrosse’s 2013 Championship Weekend looks like it was the last of its kind. Moving forward, higher seeded MLL teams will host playoff games, with a single championship game being played at a predetermined location. We probably won’t see semifinals and finals all wrapped up into one big weekend, so this is the LAST Top 10 from MLL Championship Weekend ever.
With everyone beginning preparations for the 2014 FIL World Championships in Denver, it was only a matter of time before we would get to see some of the international friendlies that would be played to help teams prepare.
Kacy Small is back on LAS with another great article. Last time, Kacy talked about the differences between FIL and NCAA lacrosse rules, and now he’s back with a fantastic Friday post on his Lacrosse Dream Team, culling athletes from the NBA, NFL, and professional boxing. He makes a strong argument for why his chosen athletes would see success. What do you think… could we get some of these guys to pick up a stick?
Welcome Jamie Plunkett back to LAS! Jamie wrote a post earlier this week on 20 years of the BLAX lacrosse club in Berlin, Germany, and now he’s back with a recap of the first European Lacrosse League tournament, which was also held in Berlin. Jamie runs the Deutschland Adler Lacrosse Club, and has played professionally in the NLL and NALL.
2013 marked 20 years of lacrosse in Germany, and as things would have it, SCC-BLAX (where I coach in Berlin) is celebrating their 20th anniversary in 2013 as well. The occasion was celebrated a couple of weeks ago, where the club invited everybody to the fields for a day of lacrosse fun. Free beer and bratwurst can make anybody happy, and always generates a good crowd.

With the 2013 season officially over (fall ball may fall in 2013, but we see it as practice for 2014), we are taking some time to reminisce in all things 2013. When we read Michael’s post on the Top 10 Warrior Lacrosse Gloves, a question came to mind – who is the hottest manufacturer right now?
Editor’s Note: Kacy Small saw both the NCAA rules and FIL rules firsthand this year. After reflecting on his experience, he’s sure one of them is doing it right, while the other has some potential areas for improvement. Can you guess which version of lacrosse Kacy prefers before reading the article? And what do you think of his argument?
