This week was awesome for me and the boys of Team Goldstar Tel Aviv. We traveled to Prague, Czech Republic to play in the Aleš Hřebeský Memorial Box Lacrosse Tournament. We didn’t know what to expect, because most of us had never even played one box game in our entire lives.

After a brief hiatus from Music Monday I’m back with a treat for you! Desmond Bailey aka Baer C00n The Ewokk’s Goon Hand 2. You may remember us mentioning Des in an October edition of End Caps. For those of you just hearing of Baer Coon for the first time, Bailey is a goalie for the Chicago Outlaws, a semi-pro box team which plays in the CILL. Des’ colorful and eccentric nature makes for a great character in the cage and on the mic.
This year seems to be a progressive one for box lacrosse. I’ve seen more programs and tournaments pop up these past few months than ever before, and even the NLL is getting on board by hosting its first Junior Tournament in Toronto.

A little bit of go Connor dropped a blind item about a field goalie trying his hand at box lacrosse. Last Friday, we revealed who the mystery man was, and even showed off a video of him playing against some kids. There are a lot of great moments in that video, including this one captured here.

I was over in New Jersey the other week checking out an American Indoor Lacrosse Association clinic in Ridgewood, and I was lucky enough to stumble upon Drew Adams’ first moments as a box lacrosse goalie. We put together a fun video on the behind the scenes action for our MVP members. It’s the added perk of being a member!
Layne Smith is a 2015 attackman who also plays a whole lot of box lacrosse. He’s not the tallest kid in the field, but he’s thick (5’11″ and 195) and uses his strength and balance to his advantage very well. He also has a super stick, and finishes inside with a flurry of fakes.
Box lacrosse seems new and exciting in the US, but it has been around for almost a century. Matt Gibson weighs in on the current progress of box development in the America.
Can you guess who this goalie is? We’ll give you a hint. He’s a professional field goalie, and this was his very first time trying his hand at box. My honest assessment is that he didn’t flinch, even when coaches were rifling balls at him, and he took to it easily.
This old ABC Sports video truly has it all. From the Gait Brothers to Dallas Eliuk to spandex, Jofa helmets and some of the best hair the 80s and 90s ever saw, not a single second of the video is anything less than awesome.
