That was the direct question from the lady on the subway platform of the 4, 5 & 6 trains in Manhattan with my pair of STX Goalmaster sticks resting on my equipment bag. It was 1989. There were only tokens, no MetroCards. Brooklyn wasn’t a “brand”. The Yankees were not known as winners. The Bronx still had a 212 area-code and buying a cup of coffee could get you a fat lip, instead of free Wi-Fi.
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.
Emery Lehman, a 17-year-old senior and midfielder at Oak Park-River Forest (Ill.) High in suburban Chicago, will represent the United States in both the 5,000- and 10,000-meter speed skating events starting this weekend in Sochi, Russia.
It’s 2013 for one more day. To celebrate the year that was, we’re dropping 13 awesome photos on you from the last 365 days of lacrosse action around the world. Some of them you’ve seen, and some you haven’t. Let’s give 2013 its proper due respect! We’ll show you a photo, and below each one we’ll tell you what was going on, and why this photo made the cut.
The older prototype that I had here is a metal one, and not carbon fiber. I’ve used a carbon fiber flex shaft before and was able to get a lot of flex and snap on my shots. I was really interested to see if I could make this work on a metal Epoch shaft. So we took it out and went shooting. The real point was to go shoot… always is!
Mike Wardian has what it takes to be a champion – he had it as an attackman in 1992, and still does as ranked ultra marathon runner today.
The waves crashing in multiple locations is pretty epic, and the bird eating a fish out of guy’s hand on the beach mid-flight is pretty darn cool. Pumped I got that on video! I even brought two mini-sticks with me to PR, which I had picked up from Throne of String a couple of days before. Always getting a little wall ball in. No excuses!
Mike Brand is back on LAS with another killer Summer Photos post. Mike has been traversing the country, and taking in a ton of lacrosse, and now he’s sharing that experience with us. Links to check out Part 1, Part 2, and Part 3 from last week inside.
We have another photo from Mark Donahue’s Yellowstone adventure! Two weeks ago we saw the Yellowstone Bear String It Forward, and today Old Faithful is in the spotlight.
This week’s photo is from our own Mark Donahue! Over Labor Day weekend, Mark spent some time in Yellowstone with his family. See what he had to say about the trip!
The Summer is winding down. It’s sad, but it also means Fall Ball is right around the corner and before we know it the Spring, and lacrosse season, will be here again. Before Summer is completely in the rearview mirror, we want to see your best summer photos.
