A Monday hat trick of news items to check out, plus one pretty random YouTube link thatâ€™s worth a look:
â€¢ The MLL has a new assist king. And guess what â€” it ainâ€™t Conor Gill or Ryan Boyle. Check out the latest on the amazing season L.A.â€™s Spencer Ford is putting together.
â€¢ In case you havenâ€™t seen this yet, itâ€™s a story that certainly registers on the â€œWow Factorâ€ Scale. I know I was a little surprised to hear it. Gary Gait, the sportâ€™s biggest legend who has A LOT going on between coaching the NLLâ€™s Colorado Mammoth, running his club venture NDP and working with STX, among other things, is apparently considering becoming head coach of the Syracuse womenâ€™s team. The Syracuse legend helped lead the Maryland women to seven-straight national titles as an assistant coach, and heâ€™s apparently considering returning to the college ranks for his alma mater.
â€¢ In equipment news, we knew this was coming, but it just became official. Another major equipment manufacturer has entered the lacrosse ranks. Adidas will release its first lacrosse products this fall. So, that means adidas stands for: â€œAll Day I Dream About â€¦ Shooting â€¦ Sliding â€¦ Scooping â€¦ Slashing â€¦ Saving â€¦ Swim-Dodging?â€ I guess it depends on what position you play.
â€¢ And, it wouldnâ€™t be a real blog entry without an absurd, useless YouTube link. Check out Mikey Powellâ€™s flip in the â€™06 All-Star Game. Then, imagine the same setting, but this time, his flip ends up like this flip-gone-bad. Watching Mikey P try to shoot as he stumbles towards the goal would probably be funny enough for him to win the contest again.
