Regardless of whether the itself movie is good or bad — A lacrosse movie is good for the sport

The Ohio State Buckeyes Lacrosse Team Wins Opener vs Detroit

Yeah — Lacrosse is back.   lacrosse is back Woody Hayes stadium

The Ohio State Buckeyes played well enough to win last night versus Detroit.  It’s early but they do need to improve if they expect to make a run for the NCAA Tournament.

Logan Schuss and  Brock Sorensen had dominant games.  Mr. Sorensen also contributed 5 ground balls. And Freshman  Jesse King had a great game and is making his presence immediately felt!  Shawn Kaplan — Keep winning those faceoffs!

The beauty of the lacrosse community

I was headed to take my dog for a run to the local dog run in Melville, NY.

I stopped at Dunkin’ Donuts for a coffee and ran into the parents of Nortwestern’s Beatrice Conley.  What a great couple. They had driven down from upstate NY to go to the game at SUNY Stony Brook.

The week before, I was at the Men’s Lacrosse Quarterfinals at Hofstra. I happened to sit with the parents of UNC’s Women’s Coach Jenny Levy. Boy does her mom know the sport – the men’s and women’s game.  The Cortland Women’s Lacrosse coach, Kathy Taylor,  stopped by and say hello. (Shout out to Kathy: Congratulations on being named SUNYAC Women’s Lacrosse Coach of the Year.)

The passion and enthusiasm of people involved in lax is great. It’s still a relatively small community. Whether it’s the men’s or women’s game,  there is a certain passion about  the game.

While it is great the sport is increasing its popularity and geography (Denver in  the Men’s Final Four ???!!!#$#$!!) there is still something special about the size and intimacy of the small community.

Yappin ’bout 2011 NCAA Men’s Lacrosse Tournament

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 HowellTom MontelliCJ CostabileJordan WolfRobert Rotanz
  •  Now wait a minute. Maryland has 8 All-Americans?  Brian Farrell ,Brett Schmidt, , Ryan YoungJoe CummingsGrant CatalinoJohn HausCurtis HolmesMax Schmidt 
  • My pick? Primarily, I’m rooting for the Long Island kids.  Otherwise, I have no clue.
