Mike Brand tipped us off to this most excellent video of a lacrosse game from Western New York, which took place in 1996. The game features the Griffith Institute taking on Williamsville South High School in a wet and wild game.
This week’s Traditional Thursday focuses on two new pockets Connor Wilson strung up, the Drop Top Traditional and the Double Traditional. Connor also answers some fantastic reader questions, and keep dropping that tradish knowledge!
This week’s Throwback Thursday post features a great video from AccessLacrosse, which features the Brooklin Redmen taking on the Vancouver Burrards in the 1991 Mann Cup.
Early reports indicate that the vote went the Iroquois’ way, even with the phrasing of the issue, and that Bylaw 11.1, which says future group placements are dictated by the last World Games final standings, was thrown out.
Have we reached the point where the good and bad teams begin to sort themselves out? Is it already time to separate the pros from the cons, the platinum from the bronze (that might make sense in a moment)? The schedule says no, but some of these results argue otherwise.
We didn’t know ball hockey was a real sport, and not just something you do for fun on a tennis court, but evidently it is, and there are even World Championships held every couple of years. The crowd at this recent Canada Vs Czech Republic ball hockey game is pretty darn serious, but it’s got nothing on this out of control fight.
With the first 2013 LXM PRO event in Orange County, California in the books, professional lacrosse season is now fully underway. The LXM, MLL, and Summer Box in Canada are all going strong, and the best players on the planet are getting paid to play the game. Connor Wilson takes a look at the first event of the 2013 LXM season, and so far, things are definitely looking up.
It is the embodiment of consumerism, misguided priorities, and our cultural fixation on expensive toys instead of tested values. It is the ethos behind “look good to play good” instead of work hard to play well. It is, quite simply, all that is wrong with our society, and all that is wrong with the greater current culture of lacrosse.
Now Schommy runs FoGoLax, and he travels around the country doing clinics, and passing on his knowledge base to kids, and the future FoGos of tomorrow. Last weekend, he was in St. Louis, and had a great turn out of players, and kids who wanted to learn the details of the battle at the X.
If you haven’t bought a ticket yet, get on it now. This is the second, and last pro field lacrosse game in NYC this season, and if we don’t show, the MLL might not come back for years. If that happens, we have no one to blame but ourselves.
We have a problem, we just can’t get enough lacrosse. Cecil Copeland, a reknowned MCLA photographer, reached out to us with a beautiful offer of 2013 MCLA Tournament photos, how could we resist?
It’s been a while since we dropped a Lacrosse Video Expolsion on you guys, and frankly, we’re sorry it’s taken us so long! We cull the internet for the best videos, put them all in one place, and save you the hassle. Also, check out First Seasons: Highlands In Texas Video… it’s what the game is all about!
We brought you the story of Highlands Lacrosse in Texas a couple of weeks ago, as Mary Mattia wrote a great story on their program’s first year. Now, Teach For America has followed up with a video on this first season, and it’s a good one!
At 1-5, the Boston Cannons’ hopes of making Championship Weekend are starting to erode just a bit, and for a team with the amount of talent, veteran leadership, expectations, and consistency, this is pretty shocking. Is it time to panic, MLL style?
It should come as no surprise that Randy Staats (attack) and Warren Hill (goalie) took home the NJCAA Player of the Year hardware, or that both players came from Onondaga Community College, which is fresh off winning their fifth straight JuCo title.
Lance Antoine provides a look back on the Charlotte Hound’s performance against the Ohio Machine in Week 6 of Major League Lacrosse action.
Over the last few weeks, parts of Europe have seen intense flooding, and the home of the Ales Hrebesky Memorial (the greatest box lacrosse tournament in Europe) is no exception. Josh Potter joins LAS to tell his Radotin story, and to provide an avenue to assist the wonderful people of this small Czech town.
The tourney runs from June 22-23rd in Stowe, VT. There will be a men’s open, Elite, and SuperMasters tournaments going on all weekend. The term Pro-Am refers to the talent level of the event. Not quite pro, but definitely not amateur.
Please welcome Mark Schindler, of Nexus Lacrosse, back to LAS! Nexus is a proud LAS partner, and Mark has wowed us in the past with training tips and drills, and some great perspective on the game. Now he’s back with a journal on a recent trip to Germany to Grow the Game!
