Random Summer Awesome-ness


Summer lacrosse is all about being awesome.  Whether you’re Joe Walters who is always focused on being awesome at life and lax or just another lax dude ripping it up on and off the field, your goal is to be on the money.  Let’s run through some of the better, brighter and best uniforms and fads.  Hold on, it’s going to be a wild ride.

We saw amazing summer uniforms from the Left Coast to the hotbeds of the East.  The below is only a small sampling of some of the best threads.

The ArtofLax pulled out the Crank shirts as jerseys and they work. Simple but effective.
These Brine uniforms from Vail were also simple but oh-so-pretty.
And you can't mention Vail without bringing up Team Maverik and Casey Powell.
And even at smaller tourneys, like Greenport, teams brought the hot Fi-yah!
And no list is even close to complete if it doesn't show off the above gear. It's a downright shame the Iroquois couldn't really use it.
These Killer Bees uniforms are really busy but bees are busy. So it works.

There were also some less successful uniforms (as there are every summer) but why waster internet space with that?  Instead I will focus on my least favorite trend of all-time: Icing.

My advice is just don’t do it.  If someone Ices you, take the bottle, put it in your stick and throw it as far as you can.  Then call the guy a loser for spending money on it and maybe this foolish trend will end.  That may be the only viable solution.

Less frat life, more lax life. Distinguish yourself. Here's a hint: this is not the way.

Now back to the good stuff…

More classic red & grey uniforms... certainly better than argyle!
Both of these sets were done quite well.
And of course, there are always the Woozles!
Drink the Kool-Aid. It's delicious.
North Shore went boring with the all Navy look while the Mass-based Megamen went with pink at the Metrolacrosse Tourney at Jed Raymond's farm in Ipswich, MA. Like.
You can't leave out the Southampton LC uniforms. StrikerDanger really did a great job on these.

And finally, we have one picture of the Jack Lingo Real Estate team’s uniforms included here.  The uniforms are pretty decent and I like how simple they are.  The thing I noticed first though a very subtle thumb placement and although I will go ballistic if I see thumbing in an NCAA game, I love it when it goes on during the summer so… WAY TO GO KYLE!  Thumbing with the best of them… I’m so proud!

A little summer thumb never hurt anyone.

  1. I played with Jed's brother Ben in high school, we had some good times on that farm on spring break, including the fastest guy on the team running down a John Deere in the rain…Jed gave us chalk talks on napkins at breakfast…amazing that they have their own lacrosse fields on the farm

  2. thanks for being against the “icing”. not exactly an image i want to see the youngest of athletes imitate but can not because they are not of legal drinking age. i just think it sends a poor message. leave those games to frat houses – not for the field
