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.

As a goalie, there is nothing worse than a crank shot from 5 yards away… the second least favorite shot for most keepers has to be the long pole bomb. You never know where it’s going, the angles are different, and half the time the poles don’t even know where the ball is going. It makes for exciting lacrosse, and can be a momentum changing play.

Tweet of the Week: Give Your Goalie Some Love

0 - Published March 6, 2014 by in The Life

Goalies are incredibly important in lacrosse, and sometimes they just don’t get the love they deserve. As an attackman, I know that I’ve given out a few stingers and shots and rides. As long as it’s not a penalty, that’s just good hard play, but when it’s your own goalie, you need to give him props. In the end, you can’t play without a goalie, he’s your last line defense, and game after game he takes a beating.

The idea behind the combine is that “the best of the best, both domestically and internationally, are invited to compete against each other for the chance to be crowned the Guardian of their age group”.

Matt Russell was back in goal for Team STX after suffering a broken thumb a few weeks earlier, and before the game in Cocoa Beach, FL had seen a full quarter, Russell took another shot off the thumb, and had to leave the game. One had to wonder who would step in goal if Matt were unable to return? We got our answer only a few minutes later, as Maxx Davis gave up the short stick and stepped in between the pipes. The Lacrosse Performance of the Year ensued!

Blind Item: Guess This Goalie!

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.

Caelahn Bullen isn’t the biggest goalie in the world. but he definitely impressed me with his positioning, as well as his ability to react to shots from in close. I’ll let you decide if you think his game is on point or not (I think it is), but there are a couple of other points about this young prospect that make me think of him as a winner…

Youth Goalie Assist: He’s Going Long

When a goalie decides to take the ball up the field themselves, you always figure they’re going to pass it. Unless I’m playing against Brett Queener or Marty Dunn, that’s what I would expect, at least. In the clip below, I’d be thinking the same thing… this kid is going to pass it, but he doesn’t.

If you saw a goalie wearing shin guards and flapping shoulder pads, you might not think of the kid as a baller, but if his name is Gareth Haigh, you’d be wrong! Leading Edge 2018′s goalie may rock shin guards and shoulder pads, but his stick skills can NOT be assailed in any way, shape, or form!

We love it when a goalie takes the rock down field and scores. We love it even more when it happens in the MLL. When it happens in the MLL and it’s not Brett Queener? SHOCK AND AWE!
