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.
Lacrosse standouts at younger ages are often the bigger kids, or the best natural athletes, but that isn't always the case... in fact, sometimes you see a kid who lacks BOTH size AND speed, and yet he STILL manages to impress. This is one of those cases...
With performance enhancing drugs running rampant in so many sports that we KNOW about, we have to ask ourselves, are PEDs here to stay? Performance enhancing drugs are ever evolving, changing, and improving.
Through CityLax, the volunteer coaches and players of NYC have created something truly special in Rooftop Lacrosse. They have given birth to a very real thing, that will live on for years. Rooftop was started on a whim, when an opportunity presented itself, and it has grown into something much bigger. What will you give birth to this Summer?
You know Con Bro Chill. But who is Connor Martin? In this week's Hot Pot we take a look at the rise of Connor Martin.
A couple weeks ago, Connor talked about his least favorite word. Now why I might not agree that it's my least favorite word, I definitely agree with all the points he makes, and wanted to expand on it from my own perspective in this week's Hot Pot.
I have worked a lot of different lacrosse camps in my day. Big time instructional camps, team camps, and recruiting camps, I've seen them all. But nothing gets me more excited than a small lacrosse camp, with a high counselor to camper ratio.
It is the embodiment of consumerism, misguided priorities, and our cultural fixation on expensive toys instead of tested values. It is the ethos behind "look good to play good" instead of work hard to play well. It is, quite simply, all that is wrong with our society, and all that is wrong with the greater current culture of lacrosse.
The big news on ESPN, CNN, Fox, Deadspin, and a number of other sources today is the brewing performance enhancing drug scandal in Major Leagues Baseball. What makes me laugh in all this is that people are acting like this is some kind of big surprise... AGAIN.
