The Wire

Originally published on LaxSpot on 1/11/08

Punk likes to watch The Wire.  What a great show!  Unlike HBO’s other hit series, The Sopranos, things actually happen in this show and it hasn’t dragged on for years.  Since they’re in Baltimore, you know that they all have to play lacrosse.  If they could only learn to play together, they’d be a sick team.

This is my All-Time starting team for The Wire Lacrosse Club who plays their games out of Clifton Park.

Coaches
 
Sgt. Jay Landsman

Frank Sobotka
Attack
 
Ziggy
Quick and versitile feeder from the X.
 BUNK
Det. William “Bunk” Moreland
A Garbage Man on the crease, Bunk loves to use the big booty to shield off defenseman.
 
Senator Clay Davis
This trash talkin attackman has a rocket outside shot.
Midfield
 
Marlo Stanfield
Always looks good in the newest lax gear.
 
Chris Paltrow
The do-it-all middie who gets the dirty work done.
 
James “Jimmy” McNulty
If sober, Jimmy can use his moves to score.
Defense
 
Omar Little
Omar loves to swing the lumber and spends a lot of time in the box.

Thomas “Herk” Hauk
Punishes anyone around the crease and hates sprints.

Howard “Bunny” Clovin
He got the nickname “Bunny” from his sick checks.
Goalie

Joe “Proposition Joe” Steward
Prop Joe’s size makes it tough to score.
 Water Boy   Mascot     
 
Randy Wagstaff
Reduced to waterboy for snitchin
on Bunk’s stat changing.

Bubbles
Hilarious on the sidelines.

Punk is a fan of all types of music, but what’s the deal with marching bands?  While watching the bowl games this week, I’ve discovered a new pet peeve; and thats the out of date gear that they are forced to wear. 

The feather in their weird hat is does not make anyone feel good.  And what’s up with the strap at it’s chin on the hats as well!?  Seriously?  They have to wear these cheesy looking jackets made of polyester.  They should really update the band attire.  

Living in Baltimore, you can go to a Ravens game and see these folks dressed up all silly too.  I know that there’s a tradition behind it, but why make a kid in the band look silly.  For crying out loud, it’s tough enough to play an instrument.   Don’t get me wrong, these folks are extremely talented.  But dressing up like a clown probably doesn’t make it much easier.

The tuba guy should have the story, “This one time, at band camp…I duct taped down the conductor until he promised us some new threads.”

I guess that I’m glad that the marching band isn’t a big thing in lacrosse.  If you’re going to bring an instrument (which is highly recommended because its cool) please do so.  Just leave the silly outfit at home.

Punk has decided to put a team in the NLL.com Fantasy league.  Last year I dominated my league and won the overall title.  It helped having NLL stars such as Lewis Ratcliffe, Colin Doyle, Ryan Boyle, Danny Marohl, Shawn Evans and Athan Iannucci on one squad.   I think I had the Mamoth defense as well.

So the “Laxpunx” are in good ole public league #281.  Punk is predicting another strong year for the punx squad.


Punk is not really a style of music. It was more like a state of mind.

So tonight I got to watch the New England Patriots go 16-0 in the regular season and I have to say that that is as punk as you can get.  The Giants played a great game, but 3 cheers to the Pats for pulling that off.Punk is wondering, how do the past couple of undefeated lacrosse champions compare to the New England Patriots in what they pulled off this season (even though it’s just the regular NFL season thus far).

In the 2005 season, D1 Johns Hopkins was 16-0 and D3 Salisbury went 20-0 in their respective championship runs.  In 2006, D1 Virginia went 17-0 and D2 Lemoyne went 15-0.  And to top all off most recently, Salisbury went 23-0 to win the national championship in D3.

Punk can recall being at some of these games for all these teams and wants to know what the lacrosse community thinks about how these teams unblemished records compare to what the Patriots have done this season thus far.

Obviously this Patriots team won’t be recognized as “The Best” if they don’t win the Super Bowl, but as of now, it doesn’t look like anyone will beat them.  What do you think?  Give me Punk your thoughts!!!

Every generation’s got to have somewhere to play. But of course I suppose the punk thing was just too ugly, and too aggressive, and too reactionary.

So I figured out the plans for NYE.   Two parties, and they’re only a few blocks away from each other, so thats win-win.  Now Punk’s just gotta find himself a nice lady to ring in the new year with. ..wink wink.  I guess he’ll just have to wait until the irons hot to strike.So I went on the NLL homepage and man that site was rocking out.  They have a jukebox goin in the background.  I think thats just as great as playing music while the games goin on!  I’m just playing, it brings a cool attitude to the site which is good if you’re looking for that attitude.  I’d prefer to hear RUSH since the Canadians dominate the league.

Now that this laxspot.com site is available to the public, I hope that folks take the initiateve and start their own blogs, groups and such because you probably don’t want to read Punk’s drivvel.  It’s the type of individualism that Punk normally speaks of.   This is the Internet in its true form, allowing the users to put up anything they want (within reason per the site).  Who am I kidding.  Hopefully some lax starts soon so we can really Punk out.

Punk!

The report from the Street Dogs show was that “IT ROCKED!”. Punk hit up the show with former Swamp Dawg all-stars Johnny Crazylegs and Diggity D. I saw a couple of laxers at the show…you can tell by their Bmore floptop. For a show containing an Irish/Boston rooted punk band, the Ottobar sure did run out of Guinness quickly. Luckily for us that the Natty Boh’s were ice cold.

Laxpunk is wondering what everyone’s doin for NYE. He’ll probably do a “Be all you can be” aka All you can drink and eat special. Let me know where the party is goin to be at and follow up with some good stories or photos of your good time!

OUT!

So Laxpunk is finally out of his mom’s basement and is starting his own blog! Can you believe that this site allows me to express my feelings about whatever I want for all to see. I think thats pretty darn neat.

I don’t have a topic today as I just stumbled upon Laxspot.com. But I have to say that the site seems pretty cool guys…well done. Hopefully the Laxpunk Nation will take over by storm!

There are so many topics that we can discus and hopefully we can hit them all. 2008 should surely be a great season in all respects. So let’s move forward and hope for some excellent play at all ranks.

There are several books out on punk history, but I haven’t read any of them. I was there.
