9/11 – Still Fresh In My Mind & The Rest of the Lacrosse World

9/11 – Still Fresh In My Mind & The Rest of the Lacrosse World

Across The LAX World, Featured Posts, Florida Lacrosse News
  No high school lacrosse player was alive when this happened.  Watching video after the fact can't capture fully the mood we felt as a nation watching the day unfold.  The sport you played produced some heroes that day as well as some heartache.  None of your parents will ever forget this day, it is our generation's Pearl Harbor.  Like so many of us I lost a close friend that day in the South Tower.  Thankfully, my brother decided to go to the gym early that day in his New Jersey home and didn't head out to his office, where he would have had to exit the transit under the WTC.  One friend did make it out of the Towers that day.     19 years ago. Luckily working from the house for the first Tuesday in many weeks.  The routine back then was to get on a plane on Sunday ...

FLN’s New Policy Towards Clubs & Club Events

Featured Posts, Florida Lacrosse News, Lee's Corner, Recruiting, The Recruiting Process
  FLN has prepared this memorandum of understanding for the Lacrosse Club Scene to clarify how FLN will cover and publicize events, tryouts and showcases. FLN seeks to be seen as both neutral in its’ actions and its’ perception throughout the lacrosse community, both for editorial and business reasons.  We look to provide information to readers, participants and the community at large.  We see FLN as spreading word of upcoming events but will not place ourselves in a position where we are showing a favored view of one club versus another, one showcase versus another, one national program versus another, etc. FLN has three missions; to celebrate and facilitate the growth of the sport in this state, to help community members who need the help of the community, and to help vendo...

  Came across this today as it was posted a week ago on YouTube.  I believe it is from GQ Sports, which has done a series of these for other sports, asking professional athletes to analyze the quality of the performance of actors and actresses playing a sport in a movie.  I did watch the Hockey version a while back and laughed at Rob Lowe's Youngblood scenes and Goldberg's Knuckle shot for example (although I do give Rob credit for doing pretty well on skates and having him, Patrick Swayze and Keanu Reeves on the same junior Canadian team - Keanu is the goalie - was a nice historical fact). Anyhow, it leads with American Pie and goes from there, so enjoy it!   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZHC1oUJ2MLg
