It’s one of those days. Good news is on the horizon.
We’re going to run through a few items that have come to my attention lately. I’ll try not to bore you with details. Just facts.
Exhibit A: Patriot Cup Highlights
If you haven’t seen it yet, BHSvideodad released a new video. This time: OREGON vs. MICHIGAN. Here’s his synopsis:
The marquee game of the 2010 Patriot Cup. This game had everything. Underdog Oregon going ahead early. Oregon’s defense holding Michigan to only 4 goals in regulation. The temperature in Dallas going from 70 on Friday to 37 and snow during the game. Nick Johnston having a standout night in goal. Michigan has the ball and the lead with 19 seconds remaining, only to lose the ball for an Oregon throw in with 11 seconds and a score by Max Schlesinger to time the game with 5 seconds remaining. Oh yeah a goal by Yealy in OT. Well you can’t have it all.

He redecorated. What do you think?
Exhibit C: Deadspin Antics
Yesterday, Deadspin posted this video. (We also linked to this in today’s Daily Cheese.) This morning I opened my inbox and the first email I see contains this link and one line that reads “What’s wrong with your people?”
Made me think. While this whole fight thing may be moderately entertaining if you’re a former WWE fan or current MMA enthusiast, is it really necessary for the NLL? Is staging all these fights a survival tactic?
Exhibit D: HomeField Partners with the MCLA
Props to the guys at HomeField for securing this partnership. Look out for an in-depth report on the HomeField team and product shortly.
Exhibit E: Maverik Sponsoring The Mavericks
From the press release:
Maverik Lacrosse today announced that it will outfit the Mesa State College “Mavericks” Men’s NCAA Division II lacrosse team with equipment, bags and apparel for their inaugural 2011 season. Mesa State College is the first ever state school west of Ohio to add a varsity men’s lacrosse program and has 27 players already committed to play for the “Mavericks” in 2011.
“We went with Maverik because they are as committed as we are to growing the sport of lacrosse beyond the East coast,” said AJ Stevens, head men’s lacrosse coach at Mesa State College. “Maverik’s equipment is on the cutting-edge of technology as well as design and I believe it will give us instant credibility in our recruiting efforts. I can’t say enough for John Gagliardi and Sean Lindsay’s belief in our program.”
