There is never enough new lacrosse content on the weekends. It’s a Monday through Friday kind of world for most people, I guess. Not here at LAS. Just to keep you on your toes, we’re dropping hotness on a Saturday. Boom.
Growing the Game
Great check-in from CityLax here in NYC. The founder of the not-for-profit visits two schools, one the defending Public School Athletic League champion up in the Bronx (the program is 4 years old. wow.), the other is the first CityLax sponsored team which is located in Harlem. I’m biased because I volunteer with these guys, but when certain kids out of your program are playing D1 lacrosse (Billy Nguyen of Columbus HS is a freshman on St. John’s) and the rest are going on to college at a really high rate, you’re doing something right. If you’re in NYC and want to get involved, check out the CityLax Volunteer page. Well worth it!
Helmets You CAN NOT BE SERIOUS About 1
Helmets You CAN NOT BE SERIOUS About 2
My boys over at LacrosseRecruits.com got hooked up with a Brine Triumph helmet that’s been gussied up by HeadWrapz. When I talk about BIG logos on the sides of teams’ helmets, THIS is what I’m talking aboot (that’s Canadian for ‘about’).
Helmets you CAN NOT BE SERIOUS About 3
This is what you get when your dad runs the show at Head Wrapz. Sweet lid for the kid at the recent High Rollers event!

How-to-Do Media for an MCLA Program
The Florida Gators scrimmaged FSU on Friday night and did an unbelievable job of covering the event themselves. UF-FSU is a HUGE rivalry, in anything. So when the Gators tweeted from the game, and even posted a highlight at halftime from what looked like a flipcam, I was impressed. This is the standard MCLA teams should strive for if they aren’t webcasting their games. It lets people get inside your program, provides personality and is great exposure. Even if you lose, it shows you care. Win-win. Here’s the highlight:
THIS. IS. LONG ISLAND!!
The New York Institute of Technology‘s mascot is a bear. Sometimes he dances at alumni lacrosse games. Guy has moves! Bet he learned them at Bogart’s.

The GOOD and the BAD. All in One!
Oregon is rocking all black fall ball/practice uniforms with yellow accents. Yup. Believe it. Maybe this team really is going to get creative in 2011! Awesome effort either way. At the other end of the spectrum we have a defenseman not wearing a t-shirt under his reversible. Southern Oregon captains and coaches, it is YOUR responsibility to make sure your team looks presentable. Make it happen. Everyone wears the same color undershirt. First step is everyone wears an undershirt. Thanks to Patrick Verdun for the great picture!!
Our friends over in Thailand have more fresh gear than they know what to do with. I can barely keep up with these guys! This picture is pretty much exactly what some of my summer leagues have looked like. 2 coolers, 1 stick. Priorities. Thanks to Payu for the pictures! He loves his gear as much as we do!
Hawai’i Teaser Shot
I’ll do one. Just one.
Best NLL Jersey?
It’s either this one or any variation of the Minnesota Swarm‘s striped uniforms. Those are money too.
