The National Lacrosse League is back in Langley, B.C., for an exhibition Saturday night. The problem with that for fans is, who and what do they watch? Colorado forward John Grant Jr. is a good start, Mammoth goalie Chris Levis told The Province. “Even if you see it happen all the time, it still drops your jaw,” Levis said. “Quite often, you find yourself saying, ‘I forgot he could do that,’ or ‘How did he do that with that guy on him?’ ” Attendance is another, because Mammoth GM Steve Govett told The Province in another story that a strong showing could encourage “the right owner” to bring the NLL back to the Lower Mainland. “It’s fertile ground,” he said. “It takes somebody who wants to seed it.” Better yet, new Roughnecks coach Curt Malawky says the game itself will be intense because it’s go-time for the players despite the exhibition moniker. “They’re fighting for jobs and we want to put on a great show for the fans,” Malawsky told the The Langley Advance.Chavez is an avid lacrosse player in Rochester and a journalist for the Democrat and Chronicle as well as a longtime Inside Lacrosse contributor.
