John Grant Junior, Joe Walters, Brett Queener, and the rest of the 2008 Rochester Rattlers put on an absolute show to win Major League Lacrosse’s title over the Denver Outlaws, 16-6 in Boston. When Casey Powell is barely even in the highlights, you know the action is legit.
When Casey Powell tweets about Paul Rabil tweeting about John Grant, Jr. … there’s just too much talent in one tweet thread to be ignored. It turns out Junior made an awesome menu item, the Legendary Mammoth Burger, named of course for his NLL team, at the Hard Rock Cafe in Denver.
Just around the half-way point of the season both the MSL and WLA are a getting serious. The MSL top three teams are all neck and neck. The WLA is keeping everyone on their toes as the teams that started off hot have cooled, and those teams that started slow are starting to find their groove.
