Last week, we covered the basics of what a concussion actually is, what symptoms can be experienced, and the common causes in the game of lacrosse. In this post, I’ll be discussing why we should care about concussions and what type of consequences can be associated with this type of injury. A 2012 study reported that among high school sports, concussion rate was third highest in boys’ lacrosse behind football and ice hockey. Another 2013 study by the NY Institute of Technology surveyed high school girls’ lacrosse players…
Last Thursday, I threw it back to the 80′s, showing the highlights of the Aldephi lacrosse program, specifically when they took down Harvard. It looks like the passion for lacrosse didn’t stop there, we were informed by big Gordon himself that there is another Gordon Purdie on the scene. His son, Gordon, is a 2015 product, tearing up the sport out in New York.
Let me introduce to you the Dallas duet known simply as The O’s. Taylor Young and John Pedigo played together in various other bands before striking out alone on their guitar and banjo in 2008. These two can absolutely jam and really show it on their new album, entitled Thunderdog, which let’s be honest is one of the coolest album names out there…Is it a dog made of thunder? Is it a conjunct of ‘the under dog?’ It’s probably both and…

First up we have a new track from a Seattle duo we featured a couple months back. Shelton Harris and Tyler Dopps just dropped a brand new song and as usual, it’s nothing short of great. It’s clear that Shelton Harris and Tyler Dopps always put 110% into everything they release. From solid production to lyrics, every song is on point.

Both the Wimmer Elite and Masters teams went 5-0 to take home the hardware once again. This means many things, but the most important is that the charities that Wimmer Solutions generously donates to on behalf of each lacrosse team that wins their respective division.

End Caps time, here we go. No Shave Novembeard is here! For the first time in my life I think my face has accumulated enough peach fuzz to shamefully attempt to grow facial hair, and not shave at all this month. Stay tuned for my pathetic, hairless updates.
A couple weeks back, Andrew Ratzke reviewed the classic Proton Power, and had the usual issues with the stick (a tad flimsy, and tough to string), so as soon as I got my hands on a NEW Proton Power by STX, I had to see if any improvements had been made. Is the head tougher? Is it easier to string? If the answer to those two questions is yes, the Proton Power will take a big step up in the ratings department.
Colton Raichl of Lacrosse All Stars shows you how to get all the girls in another installment of Stick Trick Saturday (11/01/2013).

Aw, the good old days. When you went to school and each kid had their day to show and tell their favorite things. For some people (and probably most on this site!), that favorite things is lacrosse.
Tony Siragusa (AKA Goose) and Paul Rabil are spending a lot of time together this week. That’s because Paul’s home in Maryland is the new set for Man Caves, a home renovation reality television series hosted by former Super Bowl champ.
