Wake up on Wednesdays to the Hot Pot of Lax. An interesting take on a current lacrosse topic coupled with news and links to top stories and the lax video of the week.
We can all get caught up in the moment, and sometimes the spirit of competition blinds us to the needs of others who are struggling... but at other times we look past our immediate goals and try to do the right thing. In one of yesterday's Olympic cross country skiing events we saw Sportsmanship in practice, and it was superb.
As we approach the Spring season, it's easy to let our excitement take over and forget about what got us to where we are. I've got FIVE basic rules that every player can follow, and I am willing to bet that if you follow these guidelines you're going to experience a fantastic 2014! We're hoping that everyone has a great Spring, and we hope this list assists you in getting it done.
The fallout from Richard Sherman's post game interview is ravaging the American sports landscape right now, and I'm a little shocked at how clearly the line is being drawn in this situation. Note I did NOT say Sherman's interview is ravaging America, because it is not. It was just an interview. I am talking about the manufactured fallout. It's very different.
This past weekend at the US Lacrosse Convention I was able to connect with lacrosse players, coaches, fans, parents, vendors, officials, and more.

Now that I'm rested up and my brain has cleared, I'm going to list out five great tips on how to this season and year the best ever.
If you live just about anywhere in North America right now, it's cold outside. That is not an excuse to stop your lacrosse training, so here are a few fun and constructive ways to stay active when the weather isn't cooperating.
Great teams are just that... teams. They aren't a couple of good players and others who can do their jobs. That is not greatness. That is just sliding by. True teams are singular units capable of greatness, whose sum is greater than its parts, and I've encountered them before.
The Lax Bro phenomenon might be rampant in Florida, but does it exist everywhere? And can it be blamed for holding back lacrosse? Or, is this a serious case of scapegoating, where there is no single villain?
I've gone over to Prague for the Ales Hrebesky Memorial the last two years, and as you've seen from our coverage, it's an amazing event! But this year, LAS and I are looking to step up the Grow The Game effort in Europe, and we're hoping to get some fellow American and Canadian players on board.
