This week in End Caps, Mark is getting pumped for Denver 2014 and more….(03/07/14)

The Lacrosse Network and Total Lacrosse have teamed up to bring streaming MCLA games to you! The SLC Game of the Week will now be featured on TLN’s YouTube channel.
I don’t know about you, but I am beyond excited for the FIL World Championships this Summer in Denver. 38 teams from around the world will descend on Colorado for two weeks of lacrosse action, and by the end of the third week in July we’ll have a new World Champ! Will it be the US? Canada? Will the Iroquois surpass everyone? Whatever happens, it’s going to be superb.
We sat down with Chris Marshall to learn more about the life of a well-known lacrosse broadcaster. Chris has been covering games for The Lacrosse Network and is building a reputation as the West Coast’s answer to Quint Kessenich. Check out our back-and-forth conversation with Chris Marshall below.
Our friends at The Lacrosse Network retweeted this photo earlier this month, and it was just too good not to feature. Here we have a young lacrosse player watching the game between Maverik United and Team STX at LXM|ATS 214, complete with backwards TLN hat and stick in hand.
The Lacrosse Network broadcast the 2013 NLL Combine Prospects Game last night, and it’s a great watch! These guys are all trying to make a name for themselves in this game, and are playing with hopes of being drafted tonight (Monday, Sep. 16th).
The Lacrosse Network was up in Stowe, VT for the Bitter Lacrosse Stowe Lax Fest, and they put together this killer video on the event. I love the opening segment, which honestly shows the frustration that can go into running an event, but also how the lacrosse community will pull through just about anything to make an event go off.
In the LXM PRO’s last stop in Chicago, fans were treated to a big time whooping put on by Maverik United. Mav won the game 17-11, and just looked like they wanted it a whole lot more than Team STX. Maybe my article previewing the game spurred these guys on to some extra effort? I was a little harsh on the Brattons in particular, and they clearly came to play.
It’s time. We’ve been teasing you with clips from The Lacrosse Network’s Team TLN for a few weeks, and now we have a full four minutes of action from our tournament at the Orange County Great Park at the beginning of August.
Sometimes, you just need a nice, clean time and room goal in your day. Nothing flashy about this one, just a skip pass to a set-your-feet-and-rip-it from Team TLN middie and Southland Lax alum David Lee.
One of my fellow attackmen on Team TLN is Kyle Peterson (San Marcos ’13). Kyle is a pretty cool guy, and he was a prolific scorer in his two years of college ball. Last season, he led MCLA Division II in points per game, with a whopping 8.5 a contest and over 100 points on the season. Kyle showcased his skills with Team TLN with this slick backhanded flip goal on the crease.
Heeyoung Leem, one of the FOGOs on the Team TLN team I played on last weekend, rocked a GoPro in some of our games and got some great footage. The camera falls off right away in the first game, and is picked up by the ref – all hilariously caught on camera. Hee strapped on the GoPro for another game and caught footage of our warmups and some of the game.
If the title of this post alone didn’t intrigue you, I’m not sure what will. This past weekend, I suited up with Team TLN of The Lacrosse Network, and Salisbury long pole Knute Kraus made me look really good after I fed him this ball.
Here’s a great shot captured by TLN’s Contest Colin. The player pictured is Southland Laxer Knute Kraus (Salisbury ’15), and not only is he rocking a jammy pack pre-game, but the Orange Balloon is prominently featured in the background.
Maybe you’re new to lacrosse, or know someone else who is, like a friend, relative, or even one of your parents. If you want to help them along in their journey of learning the game, I highly recommend sharing this post with them!
