What a great weekend!! I’ll get into that in a sec but first I’ve got a little something I’d like to say about playoff beards. I’ve been rocking one since the day of the Toronto game and haven’t touched it since. Some guys choose not to participate since they have other jobs that it might affect and that’s fine with me. The guys I have a problem with are the pretty boys that make up terrible excuses as to why they won’t grow one when really they just don’t want to cuz they’re worried they won’t look good. The other guys that rattle me are the ones that shave parts of it (like the neard – neck + beard = neard) or trim it. It’s not a playoff beard if you do anything to change it. The whole purpose of it is that you’re not changing ANYTHING about it until you win the Championship.
Back to lacrosse and the Stealth. We went in to Portland and did to them exactly what they did to us last year and I’ve gotta say it feels PHENOMENAL. The only real difference is that this game was never really close. We beat them up and down the floor all night and hung 20 goals on them which hadn’t been done in an NLL playoff game in 15 years. They scored a bunch of goals in the 4th quarter once we had put it in cruise control to make the final 20-16 but it wasn’t that close. Can’t dwell on it anymore tho, we’ve got bigger and better things to do this Saturday. We head to Calgary to take on the 1st place Roughnecks and I can’t wait. They beat us in both our meetings this year by a couple goals so it’ll be nice to get another shot at them. Plus, in this league, it’s really tough to beat a team 3 times in a row in a single season so we’ve got that going for us. Tune in to the game on NLL.com, it’s gonna be a good one!
