Saturday saw four D1 lacrosse teams go up early, and then fall, before the game was through. Penn State and Detroit both went up 5-1, on Yale and Notre Dame respectively, before giving way to huge comeback runs, and getting knocked out. Lehigh went up 2-0 on UNC, and looked great early on, before the Heels exploded in the 2nd quarter. Even Albany took a 1-0 lead, and then a 3-1 lead (and a 4-3 lead), before Denver's offense really started clicking.
We've been hearing whispers for a while now, and then we heard some not so quiet noise, and now we've confirmed it: Reebok is dropping team sports from their focus, and this means lacrosse at RBK is going the way of the dodo. In other words, Reebok is done with lacrosse.

Do you have a traditional pocket that you love, but you worry that you will someday break the plastic head that it is in? And do you not use the traditional because of the 100% rational fear? If so, or if you have a broken stick with a great leather and lace pocket in it, have no fear! CW is here to show you how to move your traditional pocket from one head to another...
Last week's Hot Pot was all about Travel, and how it will do you good. I had just returned from Prague, and couldn't get it out of my head. However, the week before that, I had posted a Hot Pot talking about Rethinking The Game, and Brian Silcott, living lacrosse legend, responded with a comment that blew my mind.
I created a new stringing tutorial on our YouTube page, and this time around I'm getting a little crazy, and teaching you how to string mesh! I know, anything but traditional from me is weird... but I played with mesh for years in college, and still know how to string a great pocket.
