I cant believe it is finally here, but as of today at 1215, I will officially be on Spring Break until March 25th. This school year has absolutly flown by and before you know it, summer will be here. I wish that I could say I am going on some crazy, fun, tropical spring break, but I cant. I am going to be staying in Baltimore laying low, relaxing, and working out. I am actually looking for a week long job next week to make some extra money, so if anyone has anything for me, let me know….
Now onto Lacrosse:
The Titans have a huge game tonight in Toronto. The team had a tough loss the first time against them this year after leading for most of the game, so tonight should hopefully offer a little payback.
Yesterday, I talked to our GM in San Francisco, Doug Locker, about how the Dragons are shaping up for the 2008 season. Now, dont get me wrong, we are going to have a lot of work to do, LA looks sick and are coming off a Chapionship run last year, Denver is tough and since we just traded Ryan Powell to them, they are looking even tougher, and Chicago really came on last year and have a lot of young talent, but I think we are going to be pretty good too. Talking to Doug, we discussed the moves that have been made this off season (traded Alrich and Hulme to Boston for David Mitchell; traded RP and Nate Watkins to Denver for an 08 and 09 first round pick; traded Rommel and Hendler to Chicago for Steve Panarelli and Zach Hefner; not to mention a new head coach in Tom Slate) and I must say he sounded excited about it and I think we have a great group of guys that are going to make some noise in the league this year. I am really getting excited for the first week of training camp.
With “Selection Sunday” coming up this weekend, I cant wait for the tournament to begin. This time of year always provides huge wins for the no names and some reallly exciting basketball games. Anyone have any ideas as to who wins? I know the brackets arent out yet, and it is stupid to ask that because we dont know who has the chance to play whom and where, who will get upset, etc.
I am going to take a page from Jim Rome (eventhough I cant stand him) and give you my “final burn.”
I am a huge Maryland basketball fan, I have been my entire life, and I am so dissapointed in the way this season went for them. They started off horriblely and had a midseason turnaround and just when it counts, (the end of the season) they throw it away. All they had to do was win to get a chance to make the NCAA Tournament and they couldnt even do that. Three games in a row where they had over 10 point leads and they blow it…..absolutly embaressing. How do you play so well at times and lose? How do you lose 6 of 9 games when all you have to do is win and your in?
