Welcome to another great edition of Crosse Clicks! We find the best links, video, photos, and news and cram it all into one post. On Wednesdays we cover the college game, on Mondays we hit up everything else! Now that the Convention is over, we can get back to a more normal pace of things!
The NLL kicked off last weekend, but with only one game. This past weekend, we were treated to a number of games, and the vast majority of them were exciting and competitive. It’s been a great start to the 2013 season, but it’s been hard to predict. I think I’m 0-for so far. Need to step my game up! Check out The Lacrosse Network for full NLL games, both live and archived, all season long!
With stuff like that, everyone should be able to find something to love.

A couple of weeks ago, there was an amazing article in the opinion section of the New York times entitled, “How to Live Without Irony” by Christine Wampole, a professor at Princeton University. Professor Wampole commented on our society’s infatuation with living in an ironic manner (using the example of hipsters, among others) and not living in a “direct” manner. As I read it, I could not help but see a direct parallel with our own sub-culture within the game of lacrosse, commonly referred to as “lax bros”.
Now, this is not about judging anyone, anything or any aspect in particular, within the lax bro culture. If you want to grow a mullet or “flow”, good for you. I’ve had a mohawk or two throughout my life…
