Paug Lax Thread
« on: March 16, 2012, 12:14:39 PM »
My son broke his Clutch the other night in a scrimmage and I had to replace it. I forgot how much I hate restringing.

And, I almost put it through the TV watching UCONN lose last night.

I know we have a few lax heads here, figured we might as well have a thread. I've got 3 kids playing way too much lacrosse this season...
You're entitled to your opinion but I'm going to laugh at it.

Nice   :beers:

I haven't restrung a stick in probably 10 yrs, but isn't it all mesh these days? Or do you make him use leather to stay true to your roots? Do you make him wear the old-school helmet too? :wink:

Some good matchups this weekend, UNC-Duke today at 5pm, Syracuse-Hopkins at 4pm tomorrow, and Denver-ND at 2pm Sunday. Here's the full season schedule on ESPN et. al.

Nah, it's all mesh. Still a pain in the ass if you're not paying attention and miss a diamond, and when you're using broken in mesh it can be a bitch to get the pocket right. I picked up a new Clutch 2X at LacrosseMonkey on sale w/ free shipping. Score!

Girl's sticks are still old school w/ leather shooting strings.

I laugh at these guys though who pay through the nose to have some high school kid restring heads for their kids at Lax Unlimited. Why not teach your kid to do it themselves.

That's true, and I guess you were preoccupied what with UConn shitting the bed and all.   :evil:

Agreed about paying someone to do it. If you can't string your own stick you have no business on the field.

First and only time I've used them, so I can't comment one way or the other. Normally I go to ComLax or order from Sportstop.com.

Damn, just finished watching Duke spank the shit outta UVA 13-5 on the DVR from last night. Some sloppy play on both sides, but UVA looked like a bad HS team at times. I did not see that coming. Duke looked pretty shitty at times earlier this year but they always seem to get better as the tournament approaches.

Now time for Maryland-Hopkins from this afternoon!

UVA Lax is quite distracted at the moment...  not sure how long it'll take to get over it...

Sux for us Hoos...  WTF dood...

Oh! That! No, no, no, you're not ready to step into The Court of the Crimson King. At this stage in your training an album like that could turn you into an evil scientist.

We'll be fine. The vibe at Klockner this year has been pretty good as usual. We have shit the bed once or twice but we are ridiculously talented and we'll make a deep postseason run. I don't think a repeat is out of the question but we will definitely have to step up our game come tournament time.
sure we tend to ramble, but that was a 3 page off topic tangent on crack and doses for breakfast?

Hey, I don't know anything. Please help.

I never played lacrosse, and in Charlottesville most of the people that play it are major dbags. But watching college lacrosse is money. I've never met anyone who's ever seen a professional lacrosse game or even knows what any of the teams are called.

Yeah, college is where it's at. The teams are all so talented it's rare that you don't have a really exciting game unless one team is just having an off day (a la UVA vs Duke). Even when one team jumps up by 5-6 goals, the other almost inevitably comes back and makes it a game. I'll never forget my first Final Four I went to in '94 when UVA was down by like 8 goals to Syracuse (I think) in the 4th qtr and came back and won.

Professional (outdoor) lax is aight and they do some pretty crazy shit but I had to punch out when they put a 2 pt goal and a shot clock in effect. I'm a purist. Indoor games can be pretty fun though. It's kinda like a party: lots of booze, music playing the whole time, and fights breaking out (along with some sick plays).

college lacrosse is great in that only a handful of teams have good programs and they play each other every year.
loved when boston (well, foxborough technically) had the finals.
