Sweet, sweet indoor/boxla. 3/4 sleeves? don't mind if I do.

Released late Friday night, former NLL commissioner Jim Jennings is set to hold a press conference on Tuesday morning to announce the formation of an American-based professional box lacrosse league.

This league would bring the growth of professional box lacrosse to a total of 3 leagues in North America!  THREE, yup three. And, I am not talking about the MLL, because  I am only talking about BOX.  And, NO I am not even talking about the Canadian summer leagues (MSL/WLA)!

It was announced about a month ago, that in November, Canadian lacrosse fans will have the pleasure of watching more professional lacrosse during the cold winter months. Paul St. John, of MSL and other pro rank lacrosse fame, has been putting in the man hours to bring the purely Canadian Lacrosse League (Clax) to reality.

Through online forums, Paul St. John said that he has been well aware of the American professional league. He my have even unknowingly dropped the name of the league “World Lacrosse League”.

Things are definitely heating up in professional box lacrosse!  And with a sense of nationalism it seems!

NOTES:

– The WLA holds an exhibition game tonight in Coquitlam, BC. Coquitlam Adanacs vs. Burnaby Lakers

– Not to mention that the NLL Division finals are tonight. The Rock and Bandits square of on TSN2 tonight… Sorry American fans.  No TSN for you.

This is going to be interesting lacrosse fans, some real NHL-WHA, NFL-AFL, kind of $#!%, if you know what I mean!

Grow the Game!!
