Hey All Laxers, Well the news has finally been made public as we all have been hearing rumors for weeks upon weeks. With the MLL contracting from 10 teams back to the original number of 6, the 6 remaining are not all original teams. Chicago and Denver have survived expansion and now contraction, the remaining four are Boston, Long Island, Washington and newly relocated Rattlers from Rochester to Toronto. Toronto should be a really interesting location for lacrosse since the Rattlers already have so many Canadians on their roster. Hopefully Toronto will prove to have a better fan base then Philly, LA, San Fran, and NJ who all had to fold. It still astonishes me that LI and Baltimore who everyone calls the two meccas of the sport can’t get fans to their games, come on lacrosse fans!
Have you seen the rosters, one word, SICK! Every team is an All Star team. Lacrosse should be amazing this summer. Chemistry will as always be a huge factor. I am looking forward to the upcoming season, it should be a blast.
Down here in South Florida, we find ourselves at 2-0 and winning ugly but a win is a win. We have lost some seniors to injury and academics this year. Leadership has been somewhat of an issue but I am hoping that our younger players will assume bigger roles as we move along. Tonight and tomorrow should prove to be a great learning experience for our team. North Broward Prep, a district opponent, comes to our house tonight at 6pm and St. Andrews tomorrow at 11am at their place. Just in case you have been living under a rock St. Andrews has grown to super star status and is currently ranked 12th in the country according to inside lacrosse. Wish us luck!
