Welcome to Sunday’s Lacrosse Drop! We comb the internet for great stories all week, throw in some smaller stories of our own, and on Sunday we give them to you all in one place. Add in some inspiration, a little lacrosse eye candy, and you’ve got a classic Lacrosse Drop.
Penn State’s Fight Against Lymphoma
Chris Goldberg, of Phillylacrosse.com, shared this post with us, and we agree that it deserves some serious attention. A bunch of college programs, along with Penn State, are signing up to be potential bone marrow donors for the mother of a Penn State player, as she has not been able to find a match thus far. It’s a big operation, and we love to see so many college teams and players willing to get tested, and help.
Here is UNC going with the team swab test approach:
Gait Torque Traditional
You can expect a Gear Review of this Gait Torque head some time soon. You know what they say, you can’t review it, ’til you string it. Or maybe just I say that.
Sandy Hits The East Coast… Hard
A lot of people were hit hard by Hurricane Sandy, and our readers weren’t immune.
Even though things looked dire from the outside, at least to us, Kevin Owens shared some pretty amazing and inspiring perspective:
“Comparatively, I don’t really have too much to worry about.”
Best wishes to ALL of our readers who were somehow impacted by the storm, and thanks to Kevin for keeping such a great attitude, all things considered.

How Beast Are These Socks?
Super beast. They are like slippers of warmth and goodness. I got them in an RV park. Nothing finer.
Mixed Feelings For Richmond Lacrosse Early?
The Washington Post put together a story on Richmond’s decision to add men’s lacrosse, while cutting men’s soccer and men’s track. The lacrosse community is obviously thrilled with the decision by another D1 University to add lacrosse, but few are rejoicing in the loss of other sports. Alex Prewitt does a nice job of laying out both sides, and how difficult a transition like this can be.

New Team LAS Box Lacrosse Logo?
It’s COLD outside in NYC over the Winters, just not cold enough to scare off the die-hard box lacrosse fanatics in the City. No sir! So in honor of the cold we all brave to play the game, the team LAS logo will be something like this for 2012-13:
A staple of the box team has been keeping things simple and cost effective when it comes to jerseys. We’re two for two on championship seasons… maybe that’s why. We buy practice quality hockey jerseys on sale and screen print our logos onto them locally.
We go with yellow, because why not?, and although we’ve had sponsors in the past, this year it’s all us. It’s a little silly, but it’s cost effective and unique! Just wait ’til you see the real thing!
Here is last year’s Life Juice/LaxAllStars.com jersey:
