Playing Lax: Very Lax

Tuesday, May 13th, 2008

So, is lacrosse season over yet?
Actually, it is, and not a moment too soon. My boys at North Catholic High School saw their season mercifully end a week ago today with a 16-4 loss . . . and it wasn’t that close. We finished the season with a record of 5-11 . . [...]

The Fastest Game On Two Feet

Monday, April 28th, 2008

. . . Performed by kids who play for the love of the game.
On Sunday, Kyle and his first and second grade lacrosse team played their first-ever lacrosse game. They were entered in an Under 9-Year Old tournament in Pottstown, PA. The tourney rules dictated that each team would play with seven kids [...]

The Sign Of Lacrosse

Kyle (left) makes a fast friend on the field.
It may be one of the best days of my life. Yesterday, my seven-year old son Kyle started playing lacrosse. I was very excited when he started playing soccer and street hockey. He made me proud when he started ice skating, but lacrosse has a [...]

Falcons Lax: The Greatest Show On Dirt

Tuesday, April 1st, 2008

What? You weren’t buying that quitting nonsense, were you?
From game to game, my lacrosse team is like a box of chocolates: you never know what you’re gonna get . . . and it’ll melt in the noontime sun.
Okay, I have no idea what that means, but it makes about as much sense as my kids [...]

I have three words for them: Good for you!

RALEIGH, N.C. – More than three dozen current and former Duke lacrosse players claim in a lawsuit they suffered emotional distress during the furor over the now-discredited rape case against three of their teammates.
I am usually very anti-lawyer, but in my opinion, this lawsuit is a necessity.

He Shoots! A Few Hours Later, He Scores!

Thursday, April 12th, 2007

Yesterday, I was busier than Don Imus’ publicist.
My Wednesday began at 8am at the Philadelphia Police Academy’s Pistol Range. It was time for my yearly re-qualification with my Glock 17 9mm pistol. Our course is a 60-round, stationary target shoot from distances of 25 yards and in. It’s relatively easy to score [...]

Shouldn’t the North Carolina Attorney General come to this decision months ago?
RALEIGH, N.C. – The Duke lacrosse rape case finally collapsed Wednesday, with North Carolina’s top prosecutor saying the three athletes were railroaded by a district attorney who ignored increasingly flimsy evidence in a “tragic rush to accuse.”
If they’re smart, the players will sue the [...]
