Nike Uptempo Green And Black
I be back next week with something more about lacrosse and less about me, but I would be remiss to write this column without telling you about the most powerful moment from my time as a player. It a story that encapsulates everything that I love about lacrosse and the message I want to permeate my writing here. After losing our NCAA Tournament game against Western New England in overtime, all of Nike Uptempo Green And Black us seniors had a chance to say something to the team. We were all pretty torn up about the loss. Some guys couldn muster much more than a few inaudible words. When my turn came, it was all I could do just to explain why eight grown men were so upset.
going to be a column about lacrosse. Oh yes, I will still step onto my soapbox and pontificate about how we develop players, why zone defense is the future of lacrosse, and the MLL. But in between the scorched earth rants and the passing potshots at ROACHOKE (That Roanoke for the Twitterless and/or uninitiated people out there), I hope I can write something that matters to you not just as a member of the lacrosse community, but as a person. Because when you a twenty two year old unemployed college graduate writing freelance columns for Inside Lacrosse from his pool, the moments you reflect on from your playing career aren actual plays

got tired on the field. Sports clich aside, Quint column can hardly be called a lacrosse story. Sure, lacrosse existed on the periphery, but the core of the story was about people. It was a group of men putting in some sweat equity just for a chance to do something in honor of their friends and teammates. That not a lacrosse story. It a people story. Lacrosse was but the means to an ends.
I guess I owe Quint a thank you of sorts for his inadvertent contribution to this effort. Quint, I have my secretary/mother send you something. An Edible Arrangement perhaps? But I digress. The clarity that Quint story gave me was that this is only partially Nike Uptempo Red And White For Sale
Then I woke up, opened up my computer to finish this column, and saw Quint Kessenich column about Team Reebok Blacks Out Cancer winning the Powerball Tournament. Now, with all due apologies to my editors, I am neither a big fan of Quint nor one to use this space to parrot the company line. I could have done without the made for TV sports movie description of Team Reebok playing every shift like it was the most important shift they had ever played or about them picturing Chris and Kyle when they Nike Air Max Uptempo Teal
My professors can tell you something about what lacrosse demanded from me. They could show you the rushed papers handed in, the classes I showed up late to, or just didn show up at all. Better yet, they could show you a transcript that reads like the opening line of Charles Dickens A Tale of Two Cities. It was the best of times, it was the worst of times. The good student of the fall gave way every spring to the full time lacrosse player and part time student who always turned on film before he cracked his books. Every time lacrosse called, I answered. She was my whiskey woman.
There were definitely days when I wondered why I kept coming back for more. What was so irresistible about being a player for coaches who yelled at you, a captain to teammates who didn always do the right thing, and a coach to players who don all care? Hell, why did I spend so much time trying to craft this introduction to my weekly column? I ran way past my initial deadline because I felt this compulsion to explain myself. I had to tell you why lacrosse matters so much to me, why anyone Nike Uptempo Max
Lacrosse has taken its toll on my body. College lacrosse ended months ago but even now I can run at full speed thanks to a torn hamstring suffered the day before an NCAA Tournament game. After hurting my shoulder, I can shoot a basketball or lift a weight. The ligaments in my ankle are so loose that I can roll it walking up and down the stairs. I am a 22 year old college graduate who cannot run a mile or bench 135 lbs. It safe to say four years of college lacrosse exacted a stiff physical price.
