    The tournament was also hosted in Boston, since you seem to be getting hard over this.

    Congrats to Yale! It's always a good day when Duke loses at anything.

    yale might be a game changer. that roster is for the most part 6'2" 215 pounders no matter the position. could a sprite like boyle or powell even gert a sniff from a top 10 program if other schools follow?

    I just thought it was worth pointing out that CT and New England can also be a hotbed for lacrosse in addition to the known hotbeds of North Carolina, Michigan, Baltimore, Philly, and Long Island when it comes to the US. And I think it helps validate having a pro team nearby.

    But history shows this does nothing for the NLL
    Every site listed list a mll team, with a thankful asterix to Philly.
