Fans packed Selby Stadium in Delaware, Ohio Saturday night for the final home matchup between their Ohio Machine and the visiting Florida Launch. The ecstatic crowd knew exactly what was on the line; win and in to the playoffs for the first time in franchise history.

This should not be seen as a limitation, but rather another opportunity to let your creativity run wild. First, CALM DOWN, second, read this article!
After 14 weeks of unprecedented insanity, we’ve finally reached the MLL playoffs, with the Machine taking on the Rattlers in the first game, and the Lizards facing the Outlaws in the second.
It’s high time for Readers Questions Answered! You guys send in some excellent traditional lacrosse questions, and every once in a while we sift through some of the most intriguing comments and questions, and actually respond. I know, we should do this more often. Maybe we will!
