  It's about 4:30pm CST and the gates have opened here in Frisco. I was up early this morning to catch the walk-throughs of the two teams.  Ohio at 7:30am and Denver about an hour later.  Both seemed calm and collected but I thought Ohio looked a little sharper . . . which means those with a few bucks on the game should go Denver given my track record. Dave Ryan and Evan Washburn will be calling the game and I stopped by to talk to Dave a little.  He's local, up in Cocoa Beach and loves calling the sport. Had a light lunch with Matt Kinnear of Inside Lacrosse . . . he's their Editor-In-Chief . . . and as is the norm in a conversation we tried to fix all that is wrong with the lacrosse scene . . . and it only took one beer to do it.  That must be some kind of record.

  Having a lot of fun with this road trip. And a good night for the Launch too. Tom Mariano named Coach of the Year! Tucker Durkin named Defensive Player of the Year! Kieran didn't win his category and Denver's Jack Kelly mentioned that Austin Kaut did deserve a nomination. Retiring MLL Commissioner David Gross is stepping down and there was some nice video tributes to him.  I was able to talk to Rob Wallace of LSN and we are close to receiving their affiliate marketing proposal and that will be a relationship we hope proves long term and fruitful! Got to spend some time with MLL founder Jake Steinfeld.  His son was at the ACC Coaches Showcase in Parkland back in January and we got to catch up some on family.  The first time I met Jake we had a lot of fun swapping...
