European Lacrosse Championship Predictions

Brian, Bruce, and Connor cast their predictions for 2016 European Lacrosse Championship.

The Lacrosse All Stars crew has arrived in Hungary for the 2016 European Lacrosse Championship. Join us as we make our predictions for this historic event by commenting below with your take!

The European Lacrosse Championship games started up 2.5 days ago, but Connor, Bruce, and myself made some pre-tourney “finishing” predictions and picks, and now we’re able to get it published. Better late than never!

Different story lines have been discussed, with everything under the sun in the lacrosse world being up for discussion and debate. The one obvious conversation has come up, and has now gone from polite conversation to respectable debate to heated competition. That conversation, of course, is how we think these 24 team will fare.

2016 European Lacrosse ChampionshipIt’s a gentlemen’s competition, with the stakes to be determined, but the rules are simple. For every correct placement of a team 1-24, the correct speculation is rewarded with one point. Most points wins.

In the spirit of full disclosure, I’ve been in Budapest an extra three days longer, and I would admit that I may have some extra evidence to influence my selections. That said, these are still guesses, and lacrosse is lacrosse. Added to that, Connor and Bruce both come from very different and deep lacrosse backgrounds and they talked to teams and people I didn’t. I’d be very foolish to think that my picks would be any bit better than either of theirs.

This is fun. Lacrosse is fun. Talking about lacrosse is fun. Almost as fun as watching these games, which is almost as much fun as playing in games.

Alright, I’ll stop rambling. Cards on the table, boys!
