With the 2021 PLL season just about to get underway, the Lax All Stars team is having a competition to see who can do best in a weekly pick ’em for all the league’s games.
Here’s how it will work: all six of our contestants will publicly make their pick ’em selections the Friday before each PLL weekend. The scores will be tallied every Monday, with the updated standings going on social media, then later in this post. This post will contain every prediction from every week, so you can look back and follow how the campaign went for our pickers. The winner will be heralded as the voice of a lacrosse generation; the last-place loser will earn the world’s ridicule until the end of days, or at least until the 2022 season begins.
Our panel of pickers includes Nick Zoroya, Ryan Conwell, Nick “Peaches” Pietras, Jonathan Vance, and Ryan Kuhn, and they’re all hungry to reign supreme as this site’s savant. I, Justin Meyer, shall remain the unbiased official whose job it will be to coordinate, moderate, and rule over this 2021 PLL Pick ‘Em competition with an iron (yet fair) fist.
There will be a punishment for the last-place loser. Whomever is the pitiful bottom feeder will have to film themselves shooting on a lacrosse cage, aiming for the posts and crossbar. Every shot required to hit all three at least once will be worth $1. The last-place loser will be responsible to donate the proceeds generated by his shots to a charity to be determined. For example, if it takes the loser 50 shots to hit all three pipes, they will donate $50 to the charity.
The charity will be chosen through the help of Lax All Stars’ readers! If you know of a charity that you think should get the last-place loser’s donation, please nominate them on Twitter, Instagram, or Facebook pages. As the season goes on, we will select a few of the nominated charities and hold a vote on social media for fans to decide the ultimate winner. Then everyone can enjoy watching the last-place loser give money to a worthy cause, as determined by our readers.
Let’s get the Lax All Stars 2021 PLL Pick ‘Em underway.
