Tweet of the Week: Suit & Tie for MLL Players

0 - Published December 12, 2013 by in Major League Lacrosse, The Life

The rise of the “lax bro” has been evident over the past few years, and has certainly led to a lot of discussion. Over the summer, Connor wrote about the difference between “swag” and “swagger,” and I continued the conversation.

The debate has also resurfaced on social media, leading goalie John Geagan, of the NY Lizards and Manhattan College, to tweet his mind.

As we all know by now, Brodie Merrill was traded from the Florida Launch to the Boston Cannons. Brodie was called the long stick middie GOAT (Greatest Of All Time) by John Grant, Jr., and when you’re the best you’ve clearly logged some miles. How much does he have left in the tank?

Floridafication of Launch Continues: Powell & Fullerton

0 - Published December 4, 2013 by in Major League Lacrosse

The biggest news out of Florida so far has been the Casey Powell – Joe Walters swap that went down yesterday. Powell was a leader for the Bayhawks last year, and helped them win their second straight title. It’s a little surprising to see Powell leave such a monster team, but when you consider all the promotion work he did for the last MLL All-Star game (held in Florida), it starts to make a lot of sense…

0 - Published November 21, 2013 by in LXM PRO, Pro Lacrosse

The LXM travels to Tucson, AZ this weekend with Team STX holding a formidable 5-2 lead in the 13 game series. Maverik United needs to win 5 of the next six games to come out on top, but as each and every LXM game has been competitive this year, it’s not out of the question. With a veteran defense that continues to come together, and an offense that is learning how to hang on late in games, it’s clear that Mav has what it takes to win. In Tucson, they really have to.
