Yeah, that's gonna be a great game. I'd love to see Lehigh knock of UNC too.

I had forgotten the Final Four was in Philly this year. May have to try to sneak down there on Saturday.

I can't believe how lopsided that game was. Rob Pannell is unreal. He makes everyone on that team look good. And that backhand goal was just stupid.

Great first weekend. Caught most of ND's amazing comeback and some of UNC and Albany-Denver. That guy from Albany was ridiculous; I was definitely pulling for the upset because I would have loved to see him play again (although Denver is pretty fun to watch too). Looking forward to catching up on some of the other games this week on DVR.

I've watched more than my fair share of lacrosse in my day, and watching Rob Pannell play yesterday was a treat.  He's every bit as good as any of the greats I've seen like the Powells, the gaits, Petro, those great UVA attack units of the 90's, etc.  The guy just doesn't stop moving and controls the offense with ease.  The thing that makes him great are the opportunities he creates for his teammates.  Not only does he draw the double and triple team, but his passes are crisp and right where they need to be in tight spaces EVERY TIME.  It must be alot of fun to coach a guy like that.  Anyway, Cornell handled MD yesterday and you gotta think they'll make a strong run this year.  Pannell looks determined. 

I also gotta give a shout out to my old high school coach, Charley Toomey.  My heart breaks for him losing to Duke in Double Overtime yesterday.  He's fun to play for and runs a great program.  I watched that whole game and Loyola played 3 solid quarters, but seemed to fall apart in the third a bit.  Anyway, a great first round of games and I'm really looking forward to next round.

I've been coming to where I am from the get go
Find that I can groove with the beat when I let go
So put your worries on hold
Get up and groove with the rhythm in your soul

Been meaning to bump this for the past couple weeks but it always got away from me.

Great tournament, especially in the early rounds. I loved seeing Bryant knock off Syracuse in the first round (Bryant's goalie made some ridiculous saves down the stretch to hold on for the win). And watching the Thompson brothers from Albany was a real treat too; those guys do things with their sticks that I can't believe. I'm still shocked ND came back and knocked them off.

Final Four weekend always fun to watch. Great matchups and I love seeing ND lose again (Corrigan screwed me over so F that guy). I still can't believe what Tierney has done in Denver.

What did Corrigan do?

I was pretty close to going there. I talked a lot to the assistant coach who I met at 205 going into my junior year. I was pretty close to going there to play. Senior year, Corrigan came to my house and met with me and my parents. I was going through some shit and not living at home at the time so we all put on a happy face when the coach came over but there was some real awkward energy. Next thing I know the assistant coach called and said they weren't going to be able to get me in and that was it.

I mean, I don't know if it was the meeting or if the admission thing was real (my grades were good my first 2 years but were sliding junior/senior year). He made a decision that he thought was in the best interest of the team and I absolutely understand it (and, in hindsight, it was the right decision as I separated my shoulder in the first round of the state playoffs and never played (other than club) again). But going to ND was kind of a dream and he just left a real shitty taste in my mouth after the meeting. So, to reiterate, F that guy.

Also, I have a soft spot for Duke after the thing a couple years ago.

ESPN is going to be broadcasting the World Lax Championship starting next week. All the games will be online (ESPN3), but the US games (and some other marquee games) as well as the semis and finals to air on ESPNU. US v. Canada next Thursday should be a heater. Set your DVRs.
