Warrior files lawsuit against NCAA

Ok, so the deal is the NCAA changed the head specs causing current heads and those in development to now be illegal.

The rule:

Personally, I think this will all go away when the NCAA simply gives in and makes the rule change effective in 2011.

I also think that these pinched heads are BS. I have, on several occasions pin-wheeled some fish only to see the ball not drop out as it spun through the air (uh, hello? gravity?).

Bottom line is, if you have good stick skills, moves and you practice you should be able to play lacrosse with a little wire minnow net. If you can't, well, maybe you should go back to baseball.

John Grant Jr has emergency surgery (08/29/2008)

Pro Lacrosse star John Grant Jr. had emergency surgery Wednesday night in Canada.

He was in Canada for the game 7 playoff game of the Lakers vs Excelsiors in the Major Series Lacrosse league. Grant didn't make the lineup and they lost.

Grant reported soreness in his knee and it was discovered that an infection in his arm had spread.

Get well soon Grant!

I know we're all iron men and don't want to have to sit out ever but tell the trainer when you're hurt - it could be more serious than you think.

A new book about the history of lacrosse! (not written by a stripper)

Tom Vennum, author of (no he has never played) "Little Brother of War" has written a new book exploring more of the history and it's relationship to warrior tribes.

The game is a gift from the great spirt. Couldn't have said it better myself.

Check out an interview:

Brett Queener - MVP for me

Ok so if Brett Queener wasn't a hero to the kids playing goal before the playoffs he is now.

Check out the between the legs pass at 2:39.

Coaches get ready to see an epidemic of turnovers from normally sound goalies.

The game was a blowout but watching this crazy little dude run around made it enjoyable.

Reminds me of watching Jimmy Dotsikas from Pfeiffer.

Remember kids, it's not only about beating your opponents into submission through violence and grace - it's also about having fun.

And now for our viewing pleasure...

Major League Lacrosse Semi Finals 08/23/08 @ 12

Can't wait; but it was over too soon.

No predictions from me, aside from Spallina cleaning someone out, but nothing more.

Instead of me telling you what I think - why don't you tell me what you think by voting in our poll to the right.

Anyway, I'm just looking forward to seeing some hardcore playing this afteroon.
Maybe I'll see some of my shirts in the stands.

If I do, I'll post them.

Hey - if you have pics of you in the shirts send them in, I may start making a fan page.

Now stop playing on the computer and go get ready for the game.
