Welcome to “A Lacrosse Weekend,” my weekly compilation of thoughts, ideas, history, stories, myths/truths about the great game of lacrosse! I hope you find it enjoyable.
Since arriving to Canada on Memorial Day Friday we have played a lot of lacrosse! This has been the ultimate in authentic development and fun. Playing with friends and figuring stuff out. Shooting on box goalies never gets old! Here’s what we’ve done in the past 3 weeks:
7 St Kitts box games
8 St Kitts box practices
5 pick up games (two on Darris Kilgour’s reservation)
8 backyard skill, footwork, or TRX work outs
7 shooting sessions on a box goalie
Summer Genesis tourney
FCA Weekend Training Camp
Needless to say, we’re taking the weekend off from lacrosse! All our friends left on Thursday for the weekend and the only thing on the docket for Lucy and me is a Harry Styles concert up in Toronto tonight with my good friend Sean Allen and his daughter.

The Open Road
I write this week’s blog from a coffee shop in the Ramada Inn that I rolled into last night at 1am, somewhere between Des Moines and Davenport, Iowa. My destination: St Catharines, Ontario. As I mentioned in a prior edition of this blog, my daughter and I are living up there for the summer because she wanted to play girls box lacrosse this summer.
Lucy’s first box tourney isn’t until next weekend, and it feels a little crazy to be leaving Colorado for the summer on May 18th, but I have one of the sickest guy’s trip ever planned so I had to leave a week early. Three buddies and I are going to the Rolling Stones in London, England on Tuesday night! It’s on my bucket list! I’ve never seen the Stones…I actually...

A New Beginning and an End of an Era
Spring brings renewed life, flowers, warm weather and a feeling of “It’s great to be alive” like none other. And as the we get deeper into spring, it also brings the end of a season, the end of a school year, graduations and goodbyes to seniors. We are all so lucky to have spring, lacrosse and our teams in our lives!
Yale - UMass
In a rematch from an early season Yale victory, this is going to be a street fight of a game. Greg Canella’s Minutemen have won 12 games this year and are averaging 12 goals/game. Yale is the favorite for good reason - they have Ben Reeves, Tewaaraton Finalist (who is also “wicked Smaht”) leading their offense which is averaging 14 goals per game.Yale head coach Andy Shay...

Happy Cinco De Mayo! I can’t believe it’s May already! Where does the time go? It’s the last weekend of the NCAA DI regular season with selection Sunday coming up! The weather is getting nice and so is the college lacrosse. What’s better than turning on ESPNU during tournament time?!?!
Yale 21 Penn 6
Holy $&%# what a beat down that was! Did you hear the post game comments from Matt Gaudet? Something like, “We don’t like Penn.” I love it! The Hamilton, Ontario product scored 7 goals in that game. He also said, “American goalies are not used to ‘Twisters’ …. All you kids out there, learn how to shoot twisters!
What Andy Shay has done at Yale has been amazing. Arguably the best...
