After a month off, TLS is back with a vengeance. Connor talks to two prime time guests in Kyle Sweeney and Drew Adams, and they talk about NLL, MLL, the upcoming college season, Tewaaraton favorites, US team tryouts, and more. Future versions of The Lacrosse Show will be airing on Wednesdays now, so keep an eye peeled to our YouTube channel!

In my opinion, there are two indisputable legends of the indoor game currently playing in the NLL. The first is John Grant Jr. The second scored an OT winner for the Buffalo Bandits last weekend while playing against the Philadelphia Wings. His name is John Tavares.
With the NLL kicking off last weekend it’s only appropriate that we show off some old pro box lacrosse footage for Throwback Thursday. It’s 21 years later, and pro box lacrosse is still going strong. The MILL of 1993 has been replaced with the modern day NLL, but guys are still getting after it… just without the spandex.
Mark Powers and Connor are counting down the days until the NLL season kicks off and so is The Lacrosse Network! Over on The Lacrosse Show, Mark and CW are releasing one new pick in their NLL Top 9 each day until the season kicks off. Yesterday they released their #9 preseason team, and got to talking about the Philadelphia Wings!
If you hadn’t heard, the NLL kicked off its preseason play this past weekend, and one city in particular seems very excited for the return of professional box lacrosse. What city is that? Philadelphia, where Philly Wings’ player Kevin Crowley is being featured on commemorative cups…during NBA games.
We’ve got even more GREAT video from GetBenched! Check them out on YouTube and subscribe for more great old school box lacrosse video content! GetBenched has delivered some superb video in the past, and I love the old MILL promo videos, as well as this 1975 game, also featuring the Philadelphia Wings.
The year was 1975. The NLL had just started up and the Philadelphia Wings were the most popular team in this brand new professional sports league. Greats like Jim Wasson, John Grant Senior, and the Lloyd brothers played in the league, the helmets didn’t have face masks and the sticks were all made out of wood. The shorts were also truly short.
Brett Manney comes out of nowhere for the Philadelphia Wings to snag a ball off the goal line, making what just might be the save of the year. Not bad for a shot stick defender!
Welcome to another Monday Crosse Clicks, where we cover everything inside the lacrosse world, outside of the college game!
Connor Wilson shares his Most Memorable Moments from the 2013 US Lacrosse Convention. From wooden sticks to Paul Rabil to gear and a surprise ride home, this post has it ALL!
There was actually an NLL game broadcast on national TV in the US last weekend! Did you watch the game on TV? Would you? We want to know! Plus links to Cuse’s new gear, a great Thailand Lax teaser video and more!
Week 2 of the NLL has been settled and there were a bunch of surprising results, a TON of custom helmet stories (3 in fact!) and a lot on the Rochester – Philly brawl.
On February 12, the Philadelphia Wings players will don Twitter names on the backs of their jerseys in hopes of creating a greater connection with current and future fans. The lacrosse world is responding in two ways; people love it or hate it.
