The “Best” Names in College Lacrosse

I never played lacrosse in high school because that was at the same time as the tennis season and also the musicals; y’know, because I’m like THE most masculine dude ever. Since I never played, I have no compunction with poking fun at those who do, and who better to aid in the process then the folks over at Inside Lacrosse who cover the college game have released their 2nd annual Face-Off Yearbook All-Name Team. The criteria to be included are strict:

The main qualification is to have a first name that no one has ever heard of. Now, the tricky distinction comes down to differentiating between names that might have some ethnic heritage or lean more toward hippie than preppy.

The name has to be unique, and most importantly, it has to have a certain air about it. Basically, it has to sound like it fits in Judge Elihu Smails’ family, and belongs in a Tuesday afternoon foursome with Spaulding and his chums at Bushwood Country Club.

Without further delay, here are the 1st team winners:

Ridge Flick — Sr., A, Air Force

Ashton Hotchkiss — Sr., A, Roanoke

Gibbs Preston — Sr., A, McDaniel

Forest Sonnenfeldt — Fr., M, Princeton

Keaton O’Hara — So., M, Bellarmine

Caldwell Rohrbach — So., A, St. Lawrence

Zeppy O’Geen — So., F/O, Herkimer

Briggs Davis — So., LSM, Middlebury

Baxter Lanius — Fr., D, Lehigh

Dayton Gilbreath —So., D, Air Force

Brogin VanSkoik — Sr., Potsdam

Brewster Knowlton — So., G, WNEC

All excellent choices, and they have a second and third team as well that you can check out by going to their page HERE. Me, I’d have made sure Austin Milton Winter and Blaze Yeager were on the first squad, but then again, I’m the dude who played tennis and then did high school musicals so…

I’m Guessing He Said Something Untoward

I never played lacrosse because that’s the same time as the tennis season, and later, the same as my high school musicals, so I never put on the pads and had a go. I’m still tough though, like the other day, I got a paper cut and I only cried for like 10 minutes. So there!

Anyways, this video is pretty hilarious, this kid gets KNOCKED OUT and it’s pretty awesome. Mostly because it isn’t me.

Save the Flowers, Save the World

Normally the only thing that stops a lacrosse game from happening is a totally sweet Coldplay concert, but in Pittsburgh, Franklin Park, a veritable hot spot for white dudes with sticks something else is gumming up the works. The Department of Conservation and Natural Resources informed the manager of the park that a rare blue buttercup flower may be growing in the area of the field.

There is no evidence the plant is growing anywhere on or near the land, said borough Manager Ambrose Rocca. However, the borough will probably have to hire a botanist to confirm the flower, which is listed as “critically imperiled” in Pennsylvania, is nowhere to be found.

No evidence, no flowers found, but they are going to search for it and delay building the field for at least a year. That’s some fine planning there.
