There was no Ice Box today.
After Christmas is over, I feel its always nice to take at least a couple of days off from all-out consumerism. Only trying to maintain some perspective.
Last weekend LAS had some real feel good stories. We gave away a couple of Grow the Game T-shirts and tried to keep you entertained with a little lacrosse action as we egg nogged our way through. MMMM, egg nog.
And now the New Year is almost upon us. It’s an arbitrary day, chosen to be the marker of another successful trip around a glowing ball of gas. It is also the time for Top 10 Lists. We’ll have Top 10 Lists. Tumbas has a Top 50 list of gear items over on 412. I gave my take on 10 other college lacrosse items on 412 as well. We love gear, what can I say?
And don’t ask me why we have lists, this is just the way it is. It is also the time for making resolutions. We have resolutions. Resolutions may be better than Top 10 lists. With Top 5o lists, its a toss up.
After all, it is a time to reflect, regather and focus on one’s life and their impact on others. We will do all of that. But more than anything, it is the time of year when we should all open our minds to all that is possible and then do with that what we will. And like any other day, it is a time for choices and dumb luck alike to provide the current of our lives.
If you’ve made it through the utter nonsense above, congratulations! You get this:
I hope 412 doesn’t consider this punishing it forward because these pictures have a purpose. They show why 412 is more than qualified to put up a Top 50 gear item list. He’s rocking Jordan cleats! Ok, my ban on consumerism ended quickly. Now unless you go to Pitt, you think their teams look pretty ugly. They just don’t do uniforms that well. But their lax team was on to something. 2011 could be a year of promise for Pitt. Or not. We’ll see.
Personally, I liked the Navy and Bright Yellow, but what do I know? Tumbas even tried to bring that back! God bless that young man and his discerning eye.
We’ll have more lists and lacrosse posts leading up to and through the New Year. Keep tuned in, we wouldn’t want you to miss your fix.
Oh yeah, have you ever heard of LacrosseRestrings.com? NO?!?! Me neither. But I checked out their site and it looks like they do fantastic work. And they seem to use a lot of leather. Double bonus. Are you not amused? Or at least impressed? They look game ready to me.
