Welcome to a Baby Oil Leather Traditional Thursday! Today I’m showing you how to weatherproof your leathers at home using the all important baby oil. It’s a tried and tested method, and I learned it from Jeremy Thompson, so you know it’s good. The genesis of this conversation followed an MLL game between the New York Lizards […]

With the World Championships just over a month away, it’s high time to start looking at some of the top contenders a lot deeper. While the US and Canada are still the clear cut favorites, and Australia has had a lock on the bronze (or silver) since the WLC inception in 1967, the Iroquois Lacrosse program seems to be putting forth a really competitive team for 2014, and we’re all curious to see if they can do better than a 4th place finish, which is their best finish ever at a world field lacrosse championship.
Did you miss The Medicine Game on TV this week? Maybe it wasn’t showing in your neck of the woods, or you couldn’t find it, or you just missed it, and now you’re kicking yourself… well, stop it, because now you can watch the FULL feature film online thanks to PBS!
The Medicine Game promises to be entertaining as the story is a good one, but I think many people will also find it eye-opening and educational, and this latter part pushed me to try to learn more before seeing the film tonight on TV. I was lucky enough to catch up with the film’s Writer, Jason Halpin, as well as the film’s Director, Luke Korver, via email, and they answered some pressing questions for us…
The Medicine Game will air live on PBS on Tuesday, September 24th at 8pm. Check your local listings to find out what channel PBS is carried on by your local TV provider. See below for a three minute trailer on the film, and make sure you check it out!
America ReFramed is a program on PBS that looks at America through 26 different films, where each film is either 60 or 90 minutes long. On September 24th, at 8pm, PBS will air America ReFramed: The Medicine Game, and I can’t wait to watch this 90 minutes special on Jeremy Thompson and his brother Jerome.
Last week’s Traditional Thursday saw Connor Wilson’s take on Jeremy Thompson’s one-twist pita pocket. This week, I bring to you a throwback with my take on Jeremy Thompson’s pocket. When I strung this pocket up earlier this summer, I actually had no idea that Jeremy Thompson was using a similar set up. In fact, I had no idea who Jeremy Thompson even was (just kidding, obviously).
Connor Wilson noticed that Jeremy Thompson was using an interesting one twist pita/traditional variation earlier this Summer in the MLL, and had to give it a shot and try to figure it out for himself. What do you think of his effort?
Seeing as it’s Friday, everyone should be feeling good. Hopefully this video compilation of the Thompson Family’s ridiculous stick skills don’t make you feel too bad about yourself. If it does, get out there and practice. These guys are simply ridiculous.
We’re back with a little more on Jeremy Thompson, as he’s been rocking a new traditional stick, and it’s got a Replaceable Top String!
This week’s Traditional Thursday post is pretty epic. We have a video interview with Jeremy Thomspson after a recent Nationals game, photos of Jeremy’s stick in action (it’s a traditional variation that is NEW to us!), AND some expert tips from Mr. Thompson himself!
The Medicine Game is a documentary by Lukas Korver that follows the Thompson family for six years, and it explores the family’s relationship with lacrosse, and life.
Maine Premier Lacrosse is putting on their first Winter Indoor Classic this December and the event has a bright future, and could definitely help Grow The Game in Maine!
When Josh Rottman was at the Hawaii Lacrosse Invitational, he didn’t just play lax. He made sure everyone was growing the game too! Check out the great new Grow The Game lacrosse promo video he put together.
I had the chance to go to Hawai’i, but instead I had to stay in NYC, do normal people things, and see the Northeast’s first snow of the year. I should have gone to Hawai’i to play lacrosse.
