Merry Christmas from The Boss and The UNH Wildcats!

In the most predictable blog post of my career, I give you unquestionably the greatest Christmas Song of all time. If you can watch Clarence do the Santa Claus voice and not at least smile, you have some internal issues and need to see Dr. Drew.

22: Doin Work

Well, first I want to thank everyone who came up to Maine this weekend in a surprise weekend that included debauchery, shenanigans, an epic 180 and everything in between, all under the roof of a rented 26 bedroom house for all of us to celebrate me slowly morphing into a responsible adult. Apparently, the planning for these festivities have been going on since October, stretching all the way out the way out to Denver, and somehow despite my several snitch friends, I remained in the dark until everyone walked in. Yep, the Boss just turned 22, but based on the past three days, it doesn't seem like me or anyone associated with me is slowing down quite yet. Thank you to everyone that got involved, especially the one that planned it all, and I hope it was worth it. As a token of my appreciation, I give you a montage of the greatest 22 that ever lived. Emmitt Smith? Roger Clemens? Doug Flutie? Big Black's Biceps? No, thank you. Ladies and gentleman, the inventor of swagger in lacrosse. A hero for the many players out there that realize playing well just isn't enough, and that you better look good and make people remember you along the way. I give to you, Mikey Powell.

Gettin, Gettin Some Heads

After hassling bros since the beginning of Fall Ball, getting kicked in the shins by Microsoft Excel, and exchanging several hundred phone calls/emails with my main people at ComLax (shameless), all of the gear has finally arrived in Durham. A cute +6,000 dollar order of 54 new 2010 heads, 12 helmets, 6 shafts, loads of protective gear and mesh for days, it's all here, ready for you to claim before the Christmas season, so you can string up, and break in your new head over break and ball out with your little brother. Because if you show up with a brand new stick to start the spring that hasn't been touched yet, it will be painfully obvious. So on your way out of Durham, take that quick left down Young Dreezy and pick up your stuff so it's not filling my living room anymore. And if you are one of 5 people that hasn't paid, you better get here before you leave, or the reprucussions will be deadly.

Also, you should all start following me on the newfangled thing that all the kids are talking about, Twitter or at least favorite that page because it's public. That has up to the second updates of what's happening, and during games in the spring we're going to be updating the scores LIVE! So you can know I scored a goal, from your couch, just seconds after as they are still sewing the net back together. Merry Christmas, Happy Hannukah, Jolly Kwanzaa, and Happy Festivus for the Rest of Us.

Here is what 54 heads look like on a very excited college student. Why? Because I can.
