How is everyone doing? I know that it has been a while since I last posted, but I have been busy and also have been trying to figure out what to write about. I want to start my post with an apology to the Towson lacrosse team and coaching staff if I ruffled any feathers with my comments about this years team and the program. I was out of line and I am sorry.
Now its time to move on and let you know what has been going on with me. For starters, the TItans are 7-6 and in fourth place in the NLL Eastern Conference. We have a big weekend with two games, Friday night against the Chicago Shamrox at the Garden and Saturday night against the Philadelphia Wings in Philly. If we win these two games, we should pretty much lock up a playoff spot, if we dont it will make next weekends game against the Rochester Knighthawks at the Garden all that more interesting.
Other than indoor, I have been working out feverously for the MLL season to start. Dragons training camp kicks off next weekend in Philly with our first trainig camp practice Saturday night and a scrimmage against the Barrage on Sunday. I cant wait to get outdoor going again and to catch up with all of the guys from last years team and to welcome our new teamates.
Next weekend is also a huge weekend for NFL fans with the draft. I cant wait to see what the Ravens do with the eigth pick. Do they get QB Matt Ryan, one of the many talented corners or linemen, or do they trade it away to get more picks than they already have (8). We will just have to wait and see.
Game of the weekend in college should be the Navy vs Hopkins game. Hop is coming off of a huge win over rival Maryland while Navy lost to rival Army. Throw in that it is Navy’s homecoming and over 10,000 people….it is going to make for a great game. Other big ones include a GWLL matchup Denver vs OSU (coming off a huge win over UNC), UPenn vs Maryland (Terps need to score more than 8 goals in two games), Albany vs Cuse (big upstate battle), Princeton vs Cornell (battle for the IVY), Duke (are they beatable) vs Army, and my Tigers in a huge CAA mathcup vs Villanova (this game should decide CAA tourney seedings).
Until next time……..
