Last week we debuted Flip, a documentary about Flip Naumburg. Who is Flip Naumburg? Oh, only the visionary behind offset heads, the architect of the MCLA dynasty that is Colorado State, and the founder of Rock-It-Pocket. A recent CSU grad, Patrick Sullivan, responded to my tweet about the film with these words about Flip.

Music Monday: Laxmas!

Happy Holidays LAS! Laxmas is all but here so I figured I’d spread a little Laxmas cheer and share with you a few Christmas songs. These aren’t your traditional carols or cliche’ tunes but rather a few songs that are a little less played out. So cozy up with your glass of eggnog and enjoy some Laxmas music!

Mythbusters: Lacrosse Curve Ball Shot

0 - Published December 19, 2013 by in Technology, The Life

Welcome back to another installment of LaxAllStars’ Lacrosse Mythbusters! We look at interesting or confounding questions within lacrosse, talk to experts, and try to provide some clarity. In the past, we’ve asked if eye black really works, and found it does. We also wondered if traditional pockets were heavier than mesh pockets. Now we’re back and curious about the concept of the curve ball lacrosse shot!

Hot Pot: The Power Of Team

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.

Billy’s Snow Day Shoot Around

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!
