3/15/14 – Hempstead NY – Hofstra won 11-9
Knowing the game is in-hand…
Hofstra killing the clock
I have no association with this company. I just thought it was a great shirt…
Final Four today!
- I hope Adam Ghitelman plays “emotionally solid”. He needs to be clean and not make any careless error. That does not mean he should be conservative; that’s not his game. He just needs to use his head. Take some risks but be wise.
- Hey UVA — game plan — Go to Steele Stanwick. Go to Steele Stanwick. Go to Steele Stanwick.
- Denver’s Mark Mathews is a beast. No one can physically stop him 1 on 1. They need to have the ball on his stick, have everyone slide, and then find the open man. He’s a beast.
- The Denver kids are in good shape. Altitude factor?
- Maryland seems like a team of destiny. I would not bet against them.
- I’m still wishing Hofstra was still in it.
- Duke has 6 All-Americans? That’s hard to bet against. Justin Turri, Zach Howell , Tom Montelli, CJ Costabile. Jordan Wolf, Robert Rotanz
- Now wait a minute. Maryland has 8 All-Americans? Brian Farrell ,Brett Schmidt, , Ryan Young, Joe Cummings , Grant Catalino, John Haus, Curtis Holmes, Max Schmidt
- My pick? Primarily, I’m rooting for the Long Island kids. Otherwise, I have no clue.
How great was the hidden ball trick by Maryland vs UNC in the tournment? Didn’t we run that play in 3rd grade?

What a great day of Lacrosse on May 2, 2011 @ Hofstra University.
University of Denver. Johns Hopkins. University of Virginia. Cornell
Beautiful weather. Exciting games. What’s better than that?
- Steele Stanwick (UVA)was dominant and played a great game.
- Adam Ghitelman (UVA), after a shaky start, played a fantastic game. You could see his confident grow as the game went on. Loved his long run up the field near the end of the game.
- Rob Pannell (Cornell) helped keep the game close. Smithtown’s boy showed why he is receiving the accolades!
- Max Feely (Cornell) is a play-maker. This kid is impressive.
- Mark Matthews (Denver) is a Beast! Physical. Skilled. One of the John Hopkins kids went to check him and the Johns Hopkins kid went down and broke his own stick! Wild.
- Kyle Wharton (Johns Hopkins) continued to show he’s the real deal.
Lacrosse is a great spectator sport. Combine the best attributes of football, soccer, basketball, and hockey… and that’s Lacrosse!
Oh yeah — The scores? UVA beat Cornell 13-9 . Denver beat Johns Hopkins 14-9.
… and on day #2, the train kept a rolling…
Go Team URSports USA!

Can this 2010 NCAA Lacrosse tournament be any more exciting?
The Duke – Virginia semi-final game was unbelievable. (The hearts of these teams were unbelievable.) I’m so pumped for today’s Duke vs Notre Dame. Hopefully it’s another great game.
Who will win? After spending an a hour reading articles and interviews from coaches, players, and lacrosse experts, I have come up with the determining factor for today’s game.
The Long Island Factor. The team with the most Long Islanders will win today. We know Long Island is Lacrosse Country and that will be the dominant factor today. Based upon this serious and detailed analysis, the outcome will be Duke by 5. (Duke has 9 and ND has 4 Long Islanders. Rosters below.) Sorry to all you Westchester and Maryland people. It is what it is…
(Another factor is we’re headed to a Dukee’s house for today’s Memorial Day BBQ… If I picked ND I would not get any of Duke-Head’s Beer Can Chicken.)
Go Duke! Go ND! Here’s to a great game!
