Week 3 of ULAX’s NYC league is done and said for, and we’ll have highlights from two games later on today. For now, feast your eyes on a huge Slash of Death that yours truly took squarely on the knee this past Sunday. It’s a doozy!
You might as well call this week the soft hands challenge. The goal of this week is to push your boundaries. Keep throwing the ball as high as you can testing your hands, the higher the better.
Recently, Alex Schmotter reached out to us to tell us about pHenOH 7.4, the world’s first alkaline sports drink, and its Indiegogo campaign. Schmotter, the founder and CEO of Phenoh, Inc., played four years of lacrosse at Cal Poly and was named a 2011 2nd-Team All-American.
This simple Lax Hack will keep your shaft from “cookie cuttering” your rubber end cap. Personally I don’t use rubber butt ends anymore but I used to use this trick to keep my shafts from ripping apart the rubber and exposing the metal. Not only is an uncovered butt end dangerous but it’s also illegal and you’ll be putting your team at risk for an unnecessary penalty.
Mike Sawyer tore it up at Loyola’s alumni game this weekend, and when he wasn’t scoring goals, he was terrifying goalies, and sometimes breaking their helmets. One of Loyola’s goalies took a Sawyer shot off the dome, and the shot actually cracked the shell of the helmet. Now THAT is some SERIOUS power!
It’s finally the weekend, with that comes the first installment of the End Caps, a new LAS series I’m starting up to recap what has been going on in lacrosse and the world around us. Enjoy!
The Wonderboy is a shaft that’s been around for a few years, and with staying power like that you would expect it to be a great shaft. So how does the newest edition of the Wonderboy stack up?
LXM PRO rosters are, like almost any lacrosse team’s roster, always in a slight state of flux. Guys are coming in and out during each seasonal tour, newcomers are given a chance, and injuries impact who can play. This weekend, the LXM 801 event goes down in Utah (LAS will be there, so find us, and say hello!), and we’ve got an update on who will be playing for Team STX and Maverik United this Saturday from Adrenaline.
On September the 28th the new Italian lacrosse season begins with the Italian Cup and the collaboration between Lacrosse All Stars and Coach Cibe starts again. I hope everyone is ready to lax and to follow Coach Cibe’s news from Italy.
A question popped up this week about the possibility of dyeing waxed. I’m no dye expert, but maybe you can help our poster out!
If you’ve been paying attention to the site lately, you’ve seen us promoting The Medicine Game film with previews, trailers, and interviews. We’ve also highlighted a Wooden Stick Exposition in Syracuse, which is taking place this weekend. Alongside all of that, we have posted three highly informative posts on the history of the sport from Gordon Corsetti. There is definitely a theme at play here… The quote “Know thyself” has been attributed to a number of different people, and its importance is celebrated throughout philosophy. Since so…
Did you miss The Medicine Game on TV this week? Maybe it wasn’t showing in your neck of the woods, or you couldn’t find it, or you just missed it, and now you’re kicking yourself… well, stop it, because now you can watch the FULL feature film online thanks to PBS!
We recently learned that Eric Law has taken a job with Denver City Lax, so we sat down with DCL’s Ben Allison to talk about this new hire, and what DCL has in store for the future. The Denver City Lax guys are true Game Growers, and we’re excited to see more professional lacrosse players of Law’s stature getting involved!
It’s pretty common knowledge that Matt Gibson is one of the best tweeters in the lacrosse world, if not the entire world. This week he just had too many good ones to pick only one Tweet of the Week, so here are three. With cameos from Casey Powell and Connor Martin, this is a Gibby Trifecta.
Chuck Richardson, Kevin Dugan, and Jeff Brunelle take a trip to Cane River Falls just outside of Kingston, Jamaica. Cane River Falls was one of Bob Marley’s favorite bathing spots – he even included it in the first line of his song Trench Town.
Image Courtesy: Toledo Blade Back in the day, the Bowling Green Falcons were a NCAA lacrosse team. Today BGSU is a club squad competing in the NCLL. This video, a straight black and white short from ’69-’70, is a series of clips over two years of match ups against Kenyon College and Denison University (both are also in Ohio, but currently compete at the NCAA Division III level) as well as The Ohio State University. According to John Bowen’s video,…
It’s Thursday, and that means it’s time to talk Traditional stringing. This week, I explain how important proper spacing, tension, and break-in processes can be when you’ve just strung up a traditional stick. Get that pocket looking, throwing, and catching PERFECTLY… it’s Traditional Thursday!
Earlier this week, we hinted that the NCAA D1 Men’s Lacrosse could expand in 2014 due to a new NCAA rule, allowing certain sports (like lacrosse) to count play-in games as tourney games. This means the NCAA can pay expenses, and the games will count as official tournament appearances.
John Grant Jr is a man of many trick shots on the box lacrosse floor. He makes it pretty, and he makes the opposition pay in a number of ways. And not that surprisingly, his trick shot game in flip flops is also rock solid. It’s the Summer, Junior is having some fun and repping Gait and Toyota in his latest trick shot video.
Are we a lacrosse site? Sure, we are! But that doesn’t mean we can’t share things that strike us amazing, and the video above certainly qualifies. Demetrius de Moors obviously didn’t read our Hot Pot post this morning, but he’s a shining example of what Connor was talking about.
