Hi everybody (saying that makes me feel like the cheap doctor on the Simpsons who always seems to pop up and say that).  Anyways, I hope that everyone is doing well and excited for the week to come to an end and the weekend to begin.  I wish that  I could say that I had some exciting plans for the weekend, but I dont.  Last weekend we (Trilogy Lacrosse) had tryouts for our North New Jersey Middle School and High School club teams.  It was a huge success with almost 200 kids coming out to compete for a spot on our teams.  Although the weather was a little cold and I was severely under dressed, the turnout was great and the effort the kids played with was great to see.  The tryout lasted both Saturday and Sunday, but I was only there for the Saturday session, I had a tee time on Sunday (probably the last of the year) that I needed to get back for.  After a bad outing of golf (as usual) and a Ravens win, Sunday ended up being a great end to the weekend.

This weekend, I will make the trip back up to New Jersey only this time to the Jersey Shore where we will have our last day of our six week fall lax program.  This program was meant to spur some interest from some of the lesser experienced laxers on the shore and prepare them for our Jersey Shore club team tryouts that take place next weekend.  After a long day Saturday of driving up and back to NJ, it may be a mellow night Saturday with a blowout on Sunday for the Ravens game.  Its been a while since the boys played a home game and after this week, they are back on the road for 3 or 4 straight weeks.

Other then the Trilogy work and school, I have been trying to get myself ready for the indoor season.  I recently signed with the Philadelphia Wings and training camp starts soon.  I am not going to say that I look forward to the training camp, but I am looking forward to getting back out and playing.  With Haloween being next week, I may not check in until the next week, but I will be sure to have some stories for the next blog.

Any good Halloween costumes??  Unitl next time, take care everyone….

How is everyone doing?  I am checking in from the Ramada hotel in beautiful Wayne, NJ.  I am up here this week for our (Trilogy Lacrosse) ”training camp” for our club teams before they head up to Mass for a tournament this weekend.  Well, its game week and it is a big one.  Saturday the Bayhawks head up to Rochester to face one of the toughest teams in the league.  The Rattlers are pretty interesting to watch becuase they play box outside.  The team is full of dominant indoor guys who like team Canada at the World Championships two summers ago dominated by playing that style.  They are a tough team with a lot of fire power, but if we stick to the game plan and play the way we are capable of playing, we should be fine.
I will try to check in next week again from same hotel as I will be here for our day camp next week.
Until next time……

I hope that everyone is having and had an excellent holuday season.  My break from school just started and I cant tell you how excited I am about it.  I havent had much free time for the past three months, so it is much needed.  Before I can relax, I have to get through the next few days that are jam packed with events.  I head out tomorrow morning to New Jersey for Trilogy’s NJ Club Team tryouts.  Those go on all day and from there Boyle, Alrich, Mitch Belisle, and I are off to Titans practice.  After practice it will be a quick bite to eat and bed.  We practice again at 9 Sunday and have to go back to tryouts after practice.
From tryouts I will drive back to Baltimore, pick up my girlfriend (Christie) and head out to my cousin Skip’s house for the 3rd annuall Lochte Family Christmas Party.  It is pretty much a debachle, but it is good to see the family at the holiday.  After the party, its home to bed.  Monday (Christmas Eve) is Christie and mines Christmas morning.  We will wake up and exchange presents, have breakfast and than she will go back to bed and I will head out to the gym.  We will go to my parents house for dinner than head out to Bel Air to spend the night so we can wake up with her two little sisters (Maggie (11) and Molly (15)) Christmas morning.  From there I will go back to my parents house so my mom can make me breakfast and I can hang out with them for a while.  I will than go back to meet up with Christie and her family for Christmas dinner.  After dinner, its bed (finally) and my break can finally begin.
