    Wow, Duke has a lacrosse team?

    I though that they only played basketball.

    That's the first time I've ever heard of it.

    I played the sport for a couple of years in high school -- we were the only public HS in Brooklyn to have a team and we sucked. Really loved watching it when I was in college, but haven't really followed the sport since.

    Having said that, taped the Cornell-Albany game last Saturday (and when did Albany get good?). Great game with a very exciting finish. I'll be rooting for my Big Red to bring it home this weekend.

    GOOOOOOO Blue Hens! Bob Shillinglaw is a good guy plus they have some good, underrated kids on that team. And the best faceoff middie out there, period, in Alex Smith. Kid got a free four-year education only because he can win faceoffs and sprint off the field. Hoping that Cornell can pull an upset off on their side too.

    The Albany-Cornell game was great last week. I ended up being late to a bbq because I couldn't pull myself from the end. Albany has a great coach in Scott Marr, and his dog Otis. Too bad they lost with four seconds left in OT.

    Really just as long as Hopkins doesn't win I'll be okay. I've never been to a Lax final four, and I won't get there this year either, but it's definitely an event I want to get to.

    Go whoever plays Hopkins!

    Lets go Big Red!

    One of the leading scorers on the team is from a local high school.

    I have absolutely nothing to base this on, but something is telling me Duke.....

    Let's go Delaware. They are playing too well as of late to not win the championship. If they beat Hopkins, they can take out Duke in the final. Alex Smith is the most dominant face-off player in the history of the NCAA and the Hens are finally getting their offense together. Let's go Hens!

    Johns Hopkins, just because.

    We always hear how Jim Brown was such a splendid lacrosse player.
    And I am unfamiliar with the sport, to a large degree.
    But you call Alex Smith the best ever "face-off" player in the history of collegiate play.
    What position or style did Jim play at SU.
    Educate me, if you will.

    Delaware = the least of the four evils.
