We’re going to have to chug this Hot Pot. I’m scraping to get out of town this morning…
I’m heading to Washington DC with 3 of my high school buddies for our friend’s wedding on New Year’s Eve. Only a true lax dude would have his wedding on NYE, right? That’s Jumbo Jack (the groom) for you. He’s a Woozle.
He’s one of the very few MCLA-to-NCAA stories, having played at the University of Utah and then getting recruited to Mount St. Mary’s in Emmitsburg, Maryland. And he actually may be the only MCLA-to-NCAA-to-MCLA guy, because after a season at MSM he headed out to the University of Idaho, where he coached, played and finished up school.
I’m the best man, so not only am I trying to get out of town… I’ve got a speech to prepare! It’s been running through my head the past few weeks, but it ain’t perfect yet.
Any tips or last minute advice for a guy trying to give a good laxy toast at his best friend’s wedding?
(…other than “don’t screw it up!”)

Marymount is an MCLA D2 SLC team. Marymount started their lacrosse team back in 2008, but this year the school has really gotten behind the program and is looking at building a strong competitive program. Accordingly the team has received an amazing program through Under Armour for all of their uniforms, practice gear, and apparel, Asics will be the official cleat of the program, and the team will be rockin the awesome Brine King 3 gloves and equipment this season.
