We will open things up with a buddy pass that turned into a vicious hit. But was it LEGAL? We’re interested to hear what you guys think. Then we move on to college lacrosse game highlights, and we have a ton of them! All the best footage, from all the big games, all in one place. Just what you need for a Tuesday in May!
I brought Joe Williams of Throne of String to Prague for the 2014 Ales Hrebesky Memorial for two reasons: 1) he’s an awesome guy, good friend, and greasy box lacrosse player. 2) He makes videos the likes of which I want to someday make, and I knew he’d deliver with an insane Praha Experience video.
In the spirit of “Is this D1 lacrosse poll serious?”, I’ll be taking a look at the NCAA D1 Lacrosse Tournament teams and asking whether or not they were ranked correctly. Was Duke really deserving of the #1 seed? Should a non-AQ Ivy team really have made it in to the tourney over Hofstra? Let’s take a look and see if this selection group is serious!
Gait Lacrosse took care of us and helped us get over to Prague for the Ales Hrebesky Memorial international box lacrosse tournament, and while the vast majority of my time was spent watching, filming, and playing box lacrosse, I also got out to see Prague for almost a full day. Joe Williams from Throne of String was with me the whole time, taping my silliness, and we put together a quick video showing off a day in the City.
It’s finally time to unveil our plans for the Best Bucket Awards and name the Ultimate Lacrosse Helmet Competition’s Grand Prize Winner!
China lacrosse is taking another HUGE step this summer. For the first time ever, a Chinese team will be participating in the World Championship. This July, 38 countries will fly to Denver for the largest international lacrosse tournament ever held. It’s an incredible achievement for the Chinese players to join this event and be able to play on the same stage as the best lacrosse players in the world.
The notion that the author, Dave McKenna, puts out there is summed up thusly:
There is a new trend amongst private school parents to hold their kids back a grade for sports, especially lacrosse, in the DC metro area. This means rich lacrosse parents are holding their kids back solely for sports. It’s cheating and it’s not fair.
This is incredibly lazy reporting and storytelling.
In today’s world of athletics, the one thing that is preached over and over again in terms of nutrition is the P word: PROTEIN.
The first week of the MLL season provides a perfect opportunity to take any old observation and run way too far with it. Chris Rosenthall is back covering Major League Lacrosse like NONE OTHER!
The 8-Diamond traditional pocket is a classic. When done right, it creates a sturdy and reliable traditional pocket, and while it takes some time to break in, once it’s ready to go it will be your favorite stick ever. Or not. You’ll never know until you give one a try!
It’s an exciting time for International Lacrosse as we get closer and closer to the FIL World Championships in Denver! Connor Wilson provides an update.
This weekend kicks off the 2013-14 NLL post-season featuring Buffalo Bandits vs. Toronto Rock in the East and Colorado Mammoth vs. Calgary Roughnecks for the West.
As far as wooden lacrosse shafts go, RipWood handles are a unique product with a great deal of value for the user. I prefer the feel of lumber in my hands to a metal shaft 99 out of 100 times. I believe wooden shafts are one of the last remaining threads keeping lacrosse connected to it’s roots in Mother Earth.
After watching night one of the MLL summer season, I couldn’t help but make some observations.
The 2014 Ales Hrebesky Memorial was my third straight, and it surpassed all expectations. By all accounts, it was the best Memorial ever, and after last year’s 20th anniversary tournament, that is certainly saying something.
