This Week’s GET JACKED! - Summer, summer, summertime! I know it’s the 4th of July weekend but put that hot dog down, DJ Jazzy Jeff, and grab the nearest tire. Scott has more strongman lifts that don’t require a $300 membership to a fu-fu gym. You’re a SHHHHHAAAARRRKKK this week on GET JACKED!
Lacrosse isn’t just a game, it’s a lifestyle. Catch up on what’s cool here, and live the lax lifestyle everyday.
Good day lax enthusiasts! I wanna start today with a question…OK, a statement AND a question. What is the #1 drill in lacrosse? I’ll give you a hint – anyone who doesn’t know needs to go hit it hard for a couple hours, a couple days a week. That’s right… the all powerful wall.
I know what your thinking: Mondays are a drag and I need that little extra something to get me going through the day. What might that be? Friends? Family? No. The answer: bongos. Lot’s of em. This week on GMODT we feature the one and only Incredible Bongo Band and tracks off their sole album, “Bongo Rock”.
God must have spilled something on his favorite shirt and needed some Oxyclean pronto because famed pitchman Billy Mays died today. Wandering over to my computer after a break from the USA soccer choke-fest, I was shocked to hear he passed in his sleep at the age of 50. Famous for his shouting delivery, Mays could sell an igloo to an Eskimo.
More than any other sport, the spectacle and intrigue of the NBA Draft is extraordinary and one of my favorite times of the year. Over the past few days I’ve spent my time pondering the results of the draft in addition to debating which Michael Jackson song was the best and which one was the most epic (Billy Jean and Thriller obviously). Now that we have THAT settled, let’s review how the top 10 draft picks shook out shall we?
To celebrate another weekend spread out before us, let’s turn to some inspirational quotes and clips to get you in the right frame of mind. The goal: to improve your game and conquer the next two days. Hit it, Maya Angelou! (wait…what?)
This Week’s GET JACKED! - Scott has more workout video’s showing you exactly how to get ripped. Scott Umberger is back and this ain’t no 80′s workout video. This is GET JACKED, baby.
It’s Wednesday and even though it’s now officially summer, the grind of the week can be a drag. The world is a rough place and sometimes you just need a kick in the pants. Your lax summer ball team might be 0-3, you may have accidentally taken a steamroller for a joyride last night, or maybe NBA draft coverage is dominating your life. Fear not because the answer to all your motivational problems lies out in a small school in Montana.
You wanted the best, you got the best – It’s your weekly music post by GMODT! Today we have a group called Quiet Village, whose two sole members (Joel Martin and Matt Edwards) are big names in the DJ/dance music scene.
Everyone loves playing lax at the Vail Shootout. Everyone loves sweet stick tricks. Today, we give you a mashup of both because some kid took his camera to Vail, video taped himself showing off, and posted it on YouTube. Born to be wild.
Editor’s note: Post written by an LAS co-founder for his day job at Carrot Creative, which isn’t really a job as much as it is fun. If you’re a blogger, this will appeal to you. If you’re a laxer, bear with us. “Within every despondant nine-to-fiver, there may be a Superblogger waiting to burst forth.” – Basketbawful Last weekend I had the opportunity to represent Carrot Creative at the BLOGS WITH BALLS 1.0, the first ever sports blogger and new…
Well my lax friends and family, the summer is well upon us, and you know what that means. That’s right…the naked ride in Portland, OR. If my sources are correct, it is legal to ride your bike naked in the city at all times and not just when a thousand other people are doing it. I had the great fortune of happening upon this unsightly scene of skin the other night while coming home from a few beverages with my running crew.
I attended my first Major League Soccer game this past weekend. From the moment I stepped into the stadium, I couldn’t help but dream that I was walking into Qwest field to watch Seattle’s pro Lacrosse team play an intense Saturday night game.
Really, the weekend should have ended so much better. The weather was warm, summer officially arrives next week and I was confident everything was going to come up GMODT. But last night ended in a hospital waiting room and the L.A. Lakers winning another NBA title.
Editor’s note: The following post was written by Nate Tuman of the University of Oregon. When not busy playing LSM for the Ducks, Nate can be found masterminding plans for a lacrosse video game.
My whole life I have loved video games – sports games in particular. Nothing is more frustrating to me than the lack of a lacrosse game on the market.
We have all had them. A friend or teammate who is a little quirky and maybe you would even call them kind of nuts. Nonetheless, they never cease to amaze you with their zany antics and crazy stories. These individuals live life in the fast lane and honestly you wouldn’t be the least bit surprised if they died young.
This Week’s GET JACKED! - Scott is back with a workout article perfect for staying in shape over the summer. If you can’t always make it to the gym, you’re going to need a simple, effective way to stay in peak condition. Welcome to Kettleball Workouts 101 with your video professor Scott Umberger.
Has everybody already heard this Lil Wayne “Kobe Bryant” song? I can’t begin without addressing what a crime this is. How come Spike “Knick Fan for Life” Lee didn’t soundtrack “Kobe Talkin to Teammates” with this song? Also, is Kobe’s new game face intense or painful to watch? Does he just “Want A Championship That Bad” (copyright pending), or does he have indigestion?
Sometimes it’s hard enough just dealin with real life
Sometimes I wanna jump on stage and just kill mics
And show these people what my level of skill’s like..
Step aside fools because Beaver lacrosse has some rhymes coming your way…
