I hope that everyone is doing well….I know its been a while, but I have been busy moving (I never realized how much crap I had) and getting settled into the new house. We have moved from Federal Hill across the Inner Harbor to Butchers Hill. It has been an interesting move to say the least and it is tough getting used to new surroundings. For starters, parking is miserable, if you get home past 7, you are going to be lucky if you can find a spot that isn’t three blocks away and unfortunately, the gym is no longer a block away and I had to buy a bike to get there. The bike has made things a lot easier and I have enjoyed the exercise riding to and from the gym. Mason has managed to adapt well and seems to be enjoying Patterson Park as much as he did Riverside.
Now on to lacrosse…Last week I signed a free agent contract with the Philadelphia Wings and was protected by the Washington Bayhawks, so it looks like one more year of pro lacrosse. I have come to the conclusion that this may be my final year playing lacrosse unless things go well and I have a good year.
This weekend we have a group of MLL players playing in a DII tournament against Ursinus and Michigan at Genesse Valley that benefits the Huntington’s Disease Foundation. Brian Myers was a teammate of mine at Towson University and his dad is suffering from Huntington’s disease and this tournament is a great opportunity to raise money for a good cause. If you have a chance, please come watch some great lacrosse and support a good cause.
Another former Towson teammate and current Long Island Lizard Danny Cocchi is getting married tomorrow night and we are heading up to Long Island for what is sure to be a great time. This should be an incredible party and it is going to be great to catch up with a lot of friends that I haven’t seen in a while.
Thats it for right now, I will get back in touch next week and fill you in on the wedding and the tournament.
