I’m a firm believer in the fact that Twitter has helped #GrowTheGame of lacrosse. You can interact with fans across the world, you can follow games that you can’t watch on TV or in person, and you can find tons of links to learn and improve your game. Tom Peace of TopLaxRecruits.com agrees.

The Team USA 30-man roster was announced last night on The Lacrosse Network, culminating TLN’s “Road to the Rockies” miniseries documentary on the USAMLAX tryout process. And Bull Dodge Lax has a reminder for us: there are really no bad USAMLAX picks.
The entire sports world seemingly has zeroed in on one big storyline in the NFL. Richard Sherman’s interview, and the media fallout thereafter – which Connor examined yesterday – has intensified the Broncos offense versus Seahawks defense Super Bowl script. As lacrosse tough guy Tucker Durkin puts it…
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.
LXM PRO 858 in San Diego was a thriller last weekend, with Team STX edging out a 16-15 win over Maverik United on a Max Ritz goal with two seconds left. Earlier in the game, Sam Bradman put Team STX on his back with four first half goals, including what was just about the most beautiful low release shot I have ever seen. It was an on the run riser, and Kyle Harrison definitely appreciated the shot as much as I did.
The NLL kicked off last weekend, and although Colorado dropped their home opener, they were making big waves online. Trendsmap, a website that monitors what’s trending on Twitter in different cities, tweeted that “Mammoth” was trending in Denver during the game against Edmonton.
Last week we debuted Flip, a documentary about Flip Naumburg. Who is Flip Naumburg? Oh, only the visionary behind offset heads, the architect of the MCLA dynasty that is Colorado State, and the founder of Rock-It-Pocket. A recent CSU grad, Patrick Sullivan, responded to my tweet about the film with these words about Flip.
By now you probably know that Devon Wills has become the first female player on a Major League Lacrosse roster. While she wasn’t picked up in the Supplemental Draft as some may have hoped, the NY Lizards claimed the two-time FIL Women’s World Cup gold medalist out of the Player Pool. While she still has to prove herself to make it from the training camp roster to the game roster, she has the support of many in the lacrosse community, including Connor Martin.
The rise of the “lax bro” has been evident over the past few years, and has certainly led to a lot of discussion. Over the summer, Connor wrote about the difference between “swag” and “swagger,” and I continued the conversation. After prompting from a recent article, Connor centered this week’s Hot Pot on the issue again. The debate has also resurfaced on social media, leading goalie John Geagan, of the NY Lizards and Manhattan College, to tweet his mind.
As we all know by now, Brodie Merrill was traded from the Florida Launch to the Boston Cannons. Brodie was called the long stick middie GOAT (Greatest Of All Time) by John Grant, Jr., and when you’re the best you’ve clearly logged some miles. How much does he have left in the tank?
John Grant, Jr., is one of the best Canadian lacrosse players of all time, not to mention one of the best lacrosse players of all time period. But did you know he recently gained American citizenship? What does this mean for his Thanksgiving plans? Canadian Thanksgiving is in October, which means it already happened. Does that mean he gets double the turkey and pumpkin pie?
This week’s Tweet of the Week is brought to you by Coach Peter Tumbas through his club program, American Revolution LC, and it’s a reminder that fundamentals are vital to success.
So technically this is a Salt Shakerz Instagram post, but I saw it on their Twitter, so it still counts. In some downtime at the Las Vegas Lacrosse Showcase, this Shaker got his juggling game going!
At the beginning of October, we showed you Brian Langtry’s makeshift wall ball wall. This week, we show you how John Grant Jr. plays “wall” ball.
Aw, the good old days. When you went to school and each kid had their day to show and tell their favorite things. For some people (and probably most on this site!), that favorite things is lacrosse.
