Introducing the Wichita Wingmen

- Published April 1, 2014 by in Club

When you think of Kansas, what are some of the things that come to mind? The Bible Belt, Bad Weather, Slow Lifestyles, and Lacrosse. One of those things doesn’t quite belong in a traditional sense, but here in Wichita, there are a few devoted fans of the Creator’s game and interest is starting to pick up.

I’m telling you this story because we ALL make mistakes. We ALL lose our cool from time to time. I may sit back and lecture most of the time, but trust me, it all comes from personal experience. The dumb stuff? I’ve done it. The mean stuff? Done that too. The divisive, think-you’re-God’s-gift stuff? Yup, that too.

FULL Championship Game Video!!!! The Salt Shakerz made it back to the Finals of the Mardi Gras Lacrosse Tournament, trying to win their third straight title in NOLA. Voltron came down to the Big Easy from Upstate New York with other ideas! The fans got a great game to watch even though it was raining, but since it was also pretty warm, no one was complaining, except maybe the refs.

Throwback Thursday: Salmonbellies vs. The World

0 - Published January 23, 2014 by in Box, Club

Salmonbellies Vs. The World, the self-proclaimed “story of the most famous team in lacrosse & their greatest rivals” delivers thoroughly. The information packed pages are a vivid trip through the New Westminster Salmonbellies’ long and storied existence and they are filled with stories, opinion, and plenty of research, along with a staggering number of historical and amazing photographs from the earliest days of the club.

One Slippery Game of Box Lacrosse

0 - Published December 23, 2013 by in Box, Club

ULax’s NYC box lacrosse league is going strong throughout the Winter, and we played this past weekend even though the sport court floor we use was just a little wet and slippery. Lots of guys fell over (as in everyone fell at least once), we got the games in, and had some fun. Now you get to see us slip and fall all over the place, because why not?

You want to see the Gaits, Petro, Blatchley, Tim Soudan, Scott Hiller, Randy Fraser, Dennis Goldstein, Rob Shek, and Ronnie Klausner tear it up on the field? Want to see Linthicum was in net for Mt Washington, and McCabe was in net for Brine in some sweet USCLA action from 1992? Yeah, we thought so.

Lax School has been killing it with old videos thanks to Billy Daye, Bill Millman, and Randy Fraser. These guys have stacks of VHS being converted to YouTube videos, and their most recent unveiling, of the 1992 Vail Finals, is another gem.

Hawaii 5-0 and Out

0 - Published December 9, 2013 by in Club

Nearly a month has passed since my girlfriend and I reluctantly boarded the shuttle to Honolulu Airport for our long trip back to Boston. The 20-30 degree days here in New England have thickened my blood, and the withdrawal symptoms have begun to fade. Still, the fond memories of this amazing lacrosse event, compiled with those of years past, have added to my love for the beautiful place that is Hawaii.

NYC Box Lacrosse – Week 1

0 - Published November 24, 2013 by in Box, Club

LaxAllStars.com got back on track with a win during week one of ULax’s outdoor Winter box lacrosse league in Manhattan. The website’s squad took down Team America (although with a name like that, winning made us feel awful) with relative ease, but it was really encouraging to see so many new faces to box lacrosse from the fine fellows in blue. I’d expect this team to improve greatly as the Winter season rolls along.

US Lacrosse: The POCO Rulebook

0 - Published November 21, 2013 by in Club

I know that many of you POCO (post-collegiate) guys have been chomping at the bit to read an actual rule book meant for adults (sarcasm intended). Well, US Lacrosse released an “adult” rule book including modified NCAA rules, along with a few other changes that make it more relaxed. For example, no one cares about […]

Throwback Thursday: Great 1998 USCLA Video

0 - Published November 21, 2013 by in Club, Videos

I spoke about the USCLA a couple of weeks ago, and I’m not sure that the true excellence of the game got through in my post. Thankfully, the fine fellas over at LaxSchool loaded up a video from 1999 featuring Duke Tobay LC and the Commonwealth/Brine Outlaws. Duke played in the Empire Division, and Brine was usually the top dog in the Yankee Division.
