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.
After years of injury recovery, UVA alum Ken Clausen returned to the playing field for the Denver Outlaws as they scrimmaged the Denver University Pioneers last weekend at the Colorado Lacrosse Showcase. His teammate, Mack Bocklet, gave him a shout out on Twitter for the successful return. Clausen is also the co-founder of Lacrosse Mustache Madness, a fundraising campaign for the HEADstrong Foundation, which helps families affected by blood cancers.
For this week’s tweet, Paul Carcaterra drops some knowledge on leadership, specifically on how to be a good senior leader.
Today’s message is brought to you by Trevor Tierney, and it reminds parents everywhere how to be great spectators and supporters at youth sporting events.
Brian Langtry is a really good lacrosse player. Getting there definitely took tons of training, including hours and hours on the wall. And sometimes, not the wall.
It’s pretty common knowledge that Matt Gibson is one of the best tweeters in the lacrosse world, if not the entire world. This week he just had too many good ones to pick only one Tweet of the Week, so here are three. With cameos from Casey Powell and Connor Martin, this is a Gibby Trifecta.
SD Navy Gold is a club team in the Southern California Men’s Post-Collegiate League (SCLAX) that is dedicated to “Making lacrosse play possible and affordable for San Diego County Sailors and Marines.” After Monday’s tragic events in Washington, D.C., the team tweeted the following.
The NFL season started last week with the Denver Broncos hosting the defending champs, the Baltimore Ravens. Now how does this relate to lacrosse? Well, the Broncos share their home stadium with Major League Lacrosse’s Denver Outlaws.
Team USA tryouts were last weekend, and after the long few days of competition, it seems that some of the guys got together to kick back and relax…at a Canadian’s place.
Since it was just MLL Championship Weekend, and my favorite team, the Chesapeake Bayhawks, were crowned champs for the second consecutive season and fifth overall (some would call that a dynasty), I’m allowing two tweets for this week’s Tweet of the Week. And what do they teach us? No one passes like the Hawks, and heroes are remembered, but old man legends never die.
The title of this post may be confusing, because you might not know what a dap is. I didn’t know either, but LXM buds Kyle Harrison and Sam Bradman knew the word. Here, suited up for the Jack Lingo/Fireball squad at Lake Placid, they celebrated a goal with a dap.
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.
