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.
The International Hainaut Cup will this year be hosted on the 31st of May and 1st of June (Saturday and Sunday) in Northern France!
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.
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.
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.
One year ago, over 240 collegiate and post-collegiate lacrosse players came together to battle each other and raise funds to help victims of Hurricane Sandy. The event will commence again as the 2nd Annual Margolis Cup on December 27th, 28th, 29th, and it has a unique format, both on the field, and in the how the rosters are created.
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.
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.
Blue Chip Nationals began their second weekend with a practice at Loyola’s Ridley Athletic Complex. The Nationals are the brainchild of Ted Spencer, current Blue Chip 225 director and former head coach at Fairfield. Peter Tumbas shines some light on this elite national travel program.
LaxAllStars.com, led by Billy Nguyen, Joe Barile, John Ray, and Justin Otto moved to 2-0 with a tight 11-10 win over Rudy Martinez’ Brooklyn Dodgers squad. Jeff Melnik, the creator of the video, is Brooklyn’s goalie. The Gotham Goats moved to 1-1 with a win over Team America, who drops to 0-2 early in the year.
