I have truly enjoyed reading every word of Gordon Corsetti’s three part series on The Original Game. Each post has been a learning experience, and I’ve been surprised at just how much the original game has helped shape (and still shapes!) the modern version of field lacrosse. While there are a number of great old rules, one overarching concept I’d love to see brought back to field lacrosse is the Best-of-Five Series being required to win a championship.

Forum Friday discusses the Final Four woes!
A big topic of discussion this Spring has been the relatively low attendance at the NCAA Quarterfinals, and Final Four weekend. The usual outlets are offering the usual banal reasons, but doing little to actually think about what is going wrong here.
Sure, Cornell lost the game, but this shot is simply too remarkable not to watch over and over again. It’s called getting creative kids, and we love seeing stuff like this go down at the highest levels of the game!
Rob Pannell’s career comes to an end, Syracuse wins another nail-biter, and Denver benches their goalie no matter what.
Yesterday’s games were insanely good. Cornell and Duke delivered with what seemed like three games and an epic shootout finish, while Syracuse and Denver kept things slower, and the scoring was a good deal lower.
Lincoln Financial Field will host a lot of lacrosse this weekend, and two of the five games go down on Saturday, in the men’s lacrosse NCAA D1 semifinals. We’ve got Syracuse – Denver, and Duke – Cornell. Both should be excellent games. So let’s break down what we can expect from each match up.
Early this morning, the University of Denver Athletic Department released the video shown above featuring Denver Bronco Wes Welker speaking to the Pioneers as they prepare for the NCAA Men’s Lacrosse Final Four this weekend in Philadelphia. Wes may not know much about lacrosse, but he certainly knows a thing or two about winning! Below are a couple of photos courtesy of Patrick Smith, Denver Broncos Exec. Dir. of Media Relations: Broncos WR @weswelker speaks to University of Denver lacrosse team in advance…
On May 22nd, CityLax is hosting a great night of lacrosse (and fundraising!) at the Gansevoort in Manhattan. The event will run from 8:30 to 11:30 and will be teeming with current CityLax volunteers, pro lacrosse players, and the New York City lacrosse faithful.
When one looks at the eight remaining NCAA D1 men’s lacrosse teams, it is easy to notice that half the teams have won national championships before, and half have not. What didn’t jump out to me right away (but came to me late at night in a dream) is that no past winners are playing each other, and neither are any first time hopefuls.
There has been some great conversation so far this year. See what interested the LAS Nation the most in 2012!

We’ve got little birds and live operatives all over Massachusetts this Memorial Day Weekend providing you with an in-depth look at the Final Four in Foxborough in case you can’t be there in person!
March Madness is insanely popular. Could college lacrosse’s NCAA tournament ever be this popular? The two are more similar than you may think! So what do we need to push it over the edge?!?!?
Connor Wilson asked for someone to tell him the recent Cuse-Hop game was boring. Ryan Powell is here to answer the challenge! Plus he’s got some other thoughts on changes college lacrosse could use. Now this is a debate worth having! So what do YOU think?
LAS has people all over Baltimore (and beyond!) sending in photos from the Final Four and NCAA D2 and D3 Championships so even if you can’t make it to Baltimore yourself, you can still get the full experience here on LAS!
