SD Navy Gold is a club team in the Southern California Men’s Post-Collegiate League (SCLAX) that is dedicated to “Making lacrosse play possible and affordable for San Diego County Sailors and Marines.” After Monday’s tragic events in Washington, D.C., the team tweeted the following.
We’re Talking Pockets today with LAS’ own Billy Nguyen, ChillLax Customs’ Nick Coyne, and Albany attackman Ty Thompson. We’ll see what each of these guys is looking for out of their pockets, and how they string their sticks. Hopefully, you’ll find something useful, which will help you string a better lacrosse stick!
I’m back at it with Stick Tricks in the Basement, and while I haven’t added many new tricks, I am now pulling them off with a wooden box lacrosse stick. The woodie makes these tricks much harder. Thankfully, the location is still pretty killer. It slightly makes up for my average display of wizardry.
CW was looking forward to writing a post where he countered a number of Jim Beardmore’s points with some solid analysis of his own, however, after watching the video, CW can’t disagree with Beardmore on much at all… well, except for this ONE REALLY BIG THING.
The average person is going to pick the Eagle GoPro video over the lacrosse videos every single time, but that’s just because they don’t understand just how awesome lacrosse happens to be. It’s okay, we’ll forgive them. So what do YOU think? Which GoPro video is better?
This week’s Reader Poll is all about the NLL draft!
With tournament #1 (Berlin) in the books, the European Lacrosse League is off and running. Tournament #2 takes place this weekend in Radotin, Czech Republic, and we’ve got Jamie Plunkett and Simon Krause in a LIVE Hangout to talk about the ELL, and this weekend’s event.
While attackmen, middies, goalies, and even defensemen, will get lots of recognition for their contributions to their teams there is a group of players grinding it out in positions that aren’t nearly as glorious, but no team could succeed without them. The class of 2014 is full of talent in these types of positions, and these are only a few of the many skilled players whose names you might not hear on TV.
I have truly enjoyed reading every word of Gordon Corsetti’s three part series on The Original Game. Each post has been a learning experience, and I’ve been surprised at just how much the original game has helped shape (and still shapes!) the modern version of field lacrosse. While there are a number of great old rules, one overarching concept I’d love to see brought back to field lacrosse is the Best-of-Five Series being required to win a championship.
Created as a potential solution to the new college lacrosse head and shooting string rules, the Chenango Top String causes a really tight channel and a natural “U” in your shooters.
If you are a gear-head like myself, you will have noticed the latest top string trend sweeping the nation: The Chenango Top String! As far as we can tell, this top string was first created by Syracuse player Matt Pratt in his attempt to deal with and alter the four inch shooting string rule.
A few weeks back, one of our readers notified us about Musket Lacrosse and the great things they were doing for lacrosse players. I reached out to them and was able to have a few conversations with the man behind the scenes, Bryan Jenkins, to learn more about Musket Lacrosse and their product offerings.
55 players were drafted into the NLL last night in Oakville, Ontario. The Lacrosse Network held a LIVE Hangout, which was a lot of fun, and can be seen above. See below for the complete 2013 NLL Draft Results and some commentary on how it all went down. I’ll provide some general observations, and name a couple of guys worth watching!
According to Bayhawks head coach Dave Cottle, 94 feet is the distance a halogen lamp projects its light; a number so arbitrary you’d have to assume it to be correct. “If you’re driving from Florida to Maryland,” said Cottle during a mid-season conference call, “you’re not looking at Florida or Maryland, you’re looking 94 feet ahead of you.”
We have another photo from Mark Donahue’s Yellowstone adventure! Two weeks ago we saw the Yellowstone Bear String It Forward, and today Old Faithful is in the spotlight.
This week’s Spotted is a little PSA from our friends at Jockey…
Fritts is back! This week with four songs from three different genres. Mixing it up on Monday!
Welcome back to Monday Night Memories! Last week, Randy Fraser detailed an insane box lacrosse brawl that he saw up close and personal. This week, Brian Cost joins LAS to detail how he got CRUSHED back in 2004, and how it was so very well worth it!
Chris Hogan played lacrosse at Penn State University for four years, but his athletic journey was far from over. Instead of vying for a spot in Major League Lacrosse, Hogan went back to school, and played football at Monmouth University, a smaller D1 school that has produced NFL players like Miles Austin. Now, Hogan is making waves on the Buffalo Bills’ roster in the National Football League himself.
In this post, Gordon Corsetti analyzes the Laws of Lacrosse as written by WIlliam Beers, and adopted in 1868 by the National Lacrosse Association of Canada, and he compares those laws to the 2013 NFHS and NCAA rulebooks that all of us played, coached, and officiated by this past season.
