Although you’ve probably shifted into more of an international lacrosse mindset for the time being, let’s take a quick look at everything that just went down in Major League Lacrosse.
I took on Brodie Merrill in the third installment of Connor Versus, and I actually won! How did I pull that off? Well, I challenged Brodie right after a Canada scrimmage/practice, totally sandbagged him, and only picked events that I thought I could win.
At the 2014 MLL All-Star Game, an 11-year old fan named Owen came all the way from Northern California. The MLL asked him to give us his take on the festivities. Here’s what he sent in.
The Ohio Machine have now matched this season’s win total with the franchise’s combined wins in the first two seasons. When the Machine #OilUp against the Bayhawks, big things happen. Chesapeake is the first, and only, team to be swept by the Machine this season.
Last night, the New York Lizards played host to the Florida Launch in a very patriotic pre-4th of July matchup. The soaking wet downpour made for the longest game of the 2014 season so far!
Recently Rochester native, Joe Walters, sent his unreleased Maverik Optik head to me and the guys at Throne of String for some tender loving care.
At this point last season, the Denver Outlaws had officially clinched a trip to Championship Weekend, leaving the remaining seven (well, six, to be honest – sorry Ohio) teams to duke it out for the remaining three spots. This year’s a bit different: not only are all playoff spots still available, but everyone still has a shot at the postseason.
RP3 fans, no, lacrosse fans, no, Americans, yeah, Americans, come together to put Team USA’s Rob Pannell on the cover of the world-famous Wheaties box.
Many of you noticed that Miles Thompson had stopped using a traditional pocket when he joined Major League Lacrosse’s Rochester Rattlers. Some said he was now a “mesh guy”, but the more likely explanation for the switch is that a traditional pocket takes time to break in, and Miles had used a Nike head in college, which he couldn’t use in the MLL, because of manufacturer deals. But now he’s back with a new Miles Thompson MLL Traditional pocket!
The New York Lizards hosted the Ohio Machine on Saturday and came out on top with a 19-13 victory.
Last night’s All-Star Game for Major League Lacrosse was a low scoring event, but nonetheless spectacular and memorable. 10,327 fans packed historic Harvard Stadium from far and wide to catch a glimpse of Team USA on their road to Denver. The game was a low scoring affair, but that was almost to be expected when playing international rules and when one team is seriously gearing up for the World Stage. The final score was 10-9 in favor of the USA, but the game didn’t appear to be going their way the entire tome.
Back in 2008, the Philadelphia Barrage were returning to defend their 2007 Major League Lacrosse crown, but were without a home. This was also the first time we saw the Inside The MLL show pop up, and it’s been with us ever since.
