Poking Fun At People We Know: Jerry Ragonese


We know, and love, Jerry Ragonese! Whether he’s designing custom uniforms for Pro Athletics, playing FoGo in the MLL or tweeting up storm, Jerry is always welcome and wonderful. So what better way to pay Jerry back for his friendship than by skewering him a little bit in a public forum?!

Ragonese was recently acquired by the MLL’s Charlotte Hounds, and he got his first run of the year for the expansion franchise on Saturday, against his former (former) team, the Rochester Rattlers (Jerry was on LI between Roch and Char). Jerry did well at the X and went 9-18 in his draws, even though the Hounds dropped the game 14-5.

We’re not making fun of Jerry for THAT… not one bit!

However, he is guilty of another distinction… and it’s far more dubious:


Clearly, the THUMBSPIRACY is back in full effect!

Is Jerry pinning the ball into his stick with his thumb? No. Is he gaining any real advantage? Also, no. However, it’s illegal, and fun to be petty when your friends play pro lacrosse.

We haven’t seen the Thumbspiracy in a while… but I’m glad to see it’s back. I was beginning to think people had forgotten all about it!

Hey zebras, keep an eye on this kid!
