Team Look-A-Likes

The fall season recap is coming soon, but until then we would like to give our readers some distraction before a dreaded finals week. Originally we planned on doing a Freshman-Look-Alike however there were some guys on the team we just couldn't leave out. So without further adieu, the look-a-likes:

Choice A: Freshman Attackman, Andy Upton and Roger Taney, 1800's Chief Justice of the United States (Ask stokes where he found this one)

Choice B: Freshman Attackman, Hoy Truong and Wan "Short Round" Li from Indiana Jones

Choice C: Sophomore Midfielder, Conor Ryan and Willem Dafoe

Choice D: Sophomore Defenseman, Scott Potter and everyone's favorite action hero: G.I. Joe

Choice E: Junior Defenseman, Drew "Doc" O'Connor and Jonah Hill

Choice F: Freshman Attackman, Alex Whitmore and Hunter Whitmore

Vote for your favorite look-a-like. The poll will close after the semester.

The Blog Is Back!

After the past 6 months of inactivity the UNH lacrosse blog is back up and running. Jake Katz, the old blogboss, has stepped down and moved on into the real world. The blog has now been passed down to John Kerrigan and Adam Stokes.

As our first blog post we decided it would be in the best interest of our readers to introduce each other.

Adam “Stokes” Stokes

• Sophomore WSBE – Finance and Marketing Major
• Lacrosse: Midfield/Attack (Depends on how Clark is feeling that day)
• Favorite part of lacrosse: line drills
• Most chill kid on the team
• Has a freakish knowledge of all youtube videos
• The only human on earth to “hate” Seinfeld
• Spends 85% of his day napping in bed
• Eats strictly food covered in Franks Red Hot sauce

John Finley Kerrigan

• Sophomore WSBE Student: Majoring in Finance and Minoring in Math
• When he’s on the field he plays defense. When he’s on the dance floor …strictly offence.
• Known for his many illustrious nicknames: Afroman, Kool-Aid Man, Palmdale, Jim Kerrington, Little Samurai, Poo Bear and more recently Good Ol’ Iron Jaw.
• John is the forgotten middle child in a family of four.
• However, it’s quite possible he has the highest GPA on the team (besides any Communications Majors).
• He also has great quads (even ask Jordan Gauvin).
• Lastly, he’ll probably be doing more blog posts than me this season

The UNH wildcats are going to the playoffs baby. Following a 9-5 win over Northeastern we snuck in as the 6th seed and have a rematch we Boston University on Wednesday night in their barn.

The Northeastern game was an exciting back and forth contest until we opened it up in the fourth quarter. Joe Gardiner put the team on his back netting 5 goals and adding an assist. The defense played well the entire game, forcing a lot of turnovers and letting our offense dominate time of possession.

Goal Scorers : Gardiner 5 Conor Ryan 1 Milano 1 Buckley 1 Mark Cochrane 1

Lastly, there is literally an elephant in the proverbial room for our Lacrosse team, but as a journalist I have a duty to report the truth. Here it is : STA alumns are straight killing it.

Joe Gardiner- Leads the team in goals and 2nd in assists
Zach Goodwin- 16/18 in faceoffs against Northeastern
Chris Morse- Transition sparker for the defense and has a pretty impressive post-goal-stick-spiking celebration
The Blogfather- Leads the team in saves and time spent in cut off sweat pants
Big Dog Barry Katz- Leads the league in Winnebago's owned and pulled pork sandwiches

See you at BU

P.S. It was senior night

Win or Go Home

Well as my good friend and musical inspiration Rebecca Black said: " Gotta get down on Friday." Well the mens lacrosse team has no choice but to get down tonight. With our final game of the regular season, we have to beat Northeastern to make our conference playoffs. So have a few pops, enjoy the weather and come to the game tonight at 7. Go Cats

P.S. I visit Northeastern very frequently and have gone to a number of basketball games. Last year when the Huskies were playing VCU I got selected to participate in the free throw shooting contest to win 5 free hotdogs from Spike's. Well any third grade girl can shoot free throws so I decided to back up and take some NBA range 3 bombs. After I schwaped a few to take a healthy lead on my overmatched opponent I backed up to the half court and absolutely BURIED the half courter sending the crowd of about 40 into a frenzy. Whats my point? The coolest thing ever to happen at Northeastern was done by a Wildcat. A Spike's hotdog has never tasted so sweet

God Bless

Wildcats go down to Buffs by 1

Siiiiiiiiiigggh. The UNH wildcats fell to the University of Colorado Buffalos last night 9-8 to lose their fourth game of the year by 1. We came out of the gates flying and enjoyed an early 2-0 lead. The Buffs then played like a top 10 team in the country and scored 6 un-answered goals. We then had a little rally of ourselves to make the game 6-5 at half time. An even second half led to a see-saw game with back and forth goals. Once again we had one last chance to win it but the clock struck midnight with the final score Colorado 9 UNH 8.

Goal Scorers: Joe Gardiner 3 Mark Cochrane 2 Evan Flower 1 Dan Milano 1 and Connor Murphy 1

Zach Goodwin went 10 for 16 on faceoffs which is a good sign for things to come.

We have our last regular season game this Friday against Northeastern. This is essentially the first playoff game for us because if we win we sneak in as the 6th seed in the conference playoffs and have the distinction of being the one team that no one wants to play. We have lost 5 conference games by a combined 7 goals. Yes Johnny Mcenroe ...we are serious.

Happy Easter

I just wanted to take the time to wish all the readers a happy and healthy Easter Sunday. If you strayed off from your hunt and somehow landed on this site I wanted to treat you with something extra special.

This is a picture of yours truly on the right, and your starting Long Stick Middie Chris Morse on the left, circa 1997 for Cocheco Lacrosse. Here are some observations from this amazing photo.

1) I think its safe to say that helmet technology has come along way. I think if we just tied a bunch of pillows to our head it would have been safer. Its amazing I can remember Spanish vocab words after all the head shots I took in third grade.

2) My father was angry at me this week/year. How else could you explain him making me wear those dapper goggles. I don't care how important vision is that is just inexcusable.

3) Look at Morse's chinstap. "Play Lax." That is a top notch slogan for a Lax helmet.

4) I was always taller and more handsome than Morse.

Enjoy the photo and your chocolate bunnies

Wildchats 3

My relationship with Maggie our manager is as follows. I pretend I can tolerate her in the hopes she will bring me snacks on the bus rides.

In all seriousness, Maggie is a member of the lacrosse team who does a lot for the team behind the scenes and in Twitter Land. Not a day goes by that I don't get a constant reminer about how I have never blogged about her. Well Maggie leave me alone, because you are the subject of Wildchats 3. Lets get this over with.

you are the unh lacrosse manager....why
I got an email, replied, didn't know what i was getting myself into and the rest is history. Also, looking for my soul mate

you bring me snacks for the long bus rides, what would you guess are my favorite snacks
Cool Ranch Doritos, or Goldfish Originals. You stole my pretzels once.

what is your favorite Law and Order ?
The last Law and Order I watched was with my dad when I was 10. I just like the theme song.

What is your favorite Josh Harnett movie?
Pearl Harbor. He's so god damn sexy that I think about breaking up with Ed when watching it.

Who is your favorite player?
Lately, Tom Ball. We had a rough start but I think he's come a long way.

If you were going to invite a lax player to your cocktail who would you take?
Jake... I was going to ask you... now this is awkward..

who has the kindest eyes on the team?
Well I'm not sure... but it could be Samurai, if he ever opened them.

If you were to describe Big Dog Barry Katz in one word it would be: Gregarious - http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/gregarious

If you could punch one person on the team in the face who would it be?
Garrett Buckley because his pregame music songs are standing on my last nerve. We get it, We get it, Wiz Khalifa does mash ups.

Keep on truckin- Frank the tank

BU tonight

We got the Terriers tonight. Follow on Twitter

Also, there is some rumblings going on about some fans wanting to be the blogfather for their April-Ween costume. If you choose to do this...here are some tips just so you can pull off the look properly.

My Katzpri's are 2 inches below the knee and gray
I put on four lines of eyeblack and smear it down so people are afraid of me
I often have a fresh aroma compareable to Cooler Ranch Doritos
My right arm is a liiiitle bit longer than my left
And lastly, my abs have been compared to the statue of David

No one said it would be easy.

UNH update

The UNH lax team has gone 1-1 since the tough loss to BC last week. This past Saturday we traveled down to Storrs Connecticut to take on the Huskies. Once again we fell behind early trailing 5-3 at half time. A back and forth game played out for thirty minutes. Down by 1 with 15 seconds left and the ball the Cats had one final chance to tie it up. Unfortunately, we never got a shot off and the final second ticked off with the scoreboard showing UCONN 8 UNH 7.

Goal Scorers Evan Flower 2, Joe Gardiner 1,C $ 1, Mark Cochrane 2, and Ed scored his first career goal.

We didnt have much time to sulk and lick our wounds as we had to travel to the beautiful city of Worcester on Monday night to take on WPI in the annual Coach Clark Classic. We imposed our will early and often and cruised to a dominating victory. Some young kids who have been working hard got a chance to show what they could do. Final score was 17-5.

10 different people scored goals. If you want to get your name on the blog...score again.

This upcoming weekend is a big one for the Cats. We have two league games is 19 hours. We travel to BU on Friday for a prime time game against the Terriers. The next afternoon we welcome PCLL newcomer SUNY Buffalo to Durham for a Saturday afternoon game. What makes that game special is that the fans are asked to come in costume for our inaugural "April-Ween" game. Everyone loves dressing up and everyone loves heckling people from Buffalo about living in Buffalo. Kill two birda (Buffalo) with one stone and come to the game in a costume.

Until next time

BC 7 UNH 5

Your UNH wildcats lost to the #8 ranked BC Eagles 7-5 last night in front of a loud and hydrated crowd. BC went up 2-0 in the second quarter but UNH fought back to make it 3-2 Wildcats at half. After trading goals, BC found itself up 7-5 midway through the fourth. Despite a frantic effort and never-give-up attitude the Wildcats couldn't put another one on the board and it ended 7-5. BC improves to 5 -2 while UNH falls to 1-4.

Alright, now that we got that out of the way lets play some Thursday morning Goalie.

The energy is back for the wildcats. We were not the same team that took the field against URI.

Jordan Gauvin enjoyed the best game of his career. He played good D and sparked our transition game. Also took a number of good faceoffs

Our defense played very well and once our offense clicks, we will be a tougher team to beat

Our next game is against UCONN in Storrs at 7PM on Saturday. Hopefully the players are still hungover from Monday nights riots

We have the rowdiest fans I have seen/heard to date

I broke my head during the fourth quarter. This makes me sad

Goal Scorers: Evan Flower 2, Dan Milano 1, Cal Bailey 1, and Sam Elmes 1

BC Game Postponed

There is an old baseball saying that goes something like: You can win,lose, or it can rain. Well Abner Doubleday forgot to add the "you can not clean off the field of snow on a gorgeous 50 degree day." That pretty much sums it up. We couldn't get the field cleared off and the game got moved to Wednesday night at 8( do your homework early, if you still go to class). Anyone louder than the Big Dog Barry Katz gets their first O'doul on me that night.

In other news, there has been a culture change for the lacrosse team. This change is extending all the way to the blog. I vow to spend more time reporting on games after, because you the reader demand it.

I know the mustache pictures are more overdue than my Dialogue and Teamwork term paper but they will be up this week.

Lastly, here is the punishment for the Elian Gonzalez miracle. It can not be understated how tight these jeans were. My thighs have still not recovered. My hand in my pocket is as far as I could get anything in those pockets. The lesson being : If you wager a Scott Lamay wardrobe you got to go harder to the bucket than Elian Gonzalez.

See you Wednesday night.

Rebecca Black said it best

Made it through another week. We have URI tomorrow at 2 pm for our home opener and first game in the PCLL. Come check it out.

Only read this if you have four hours to kill in the Phoenix Airport

Despite the fact that it was 80 degrees all week, Mother Nature decided for some reason to have a snow storm in New England causing the Men's lacrosse team to be delayed at their gate for about 4 hours. Before I get to the recap of the weekend I have to explain the amazing event that took place between Coach Clark and I.

I was bored and hungry. I challenged coach to a game of 20 questions. If I won he had to buy me a bagel and a drink, and if he won then Scott Lamay got to pick out my wardrobe for the next social get together. For anyone who doesn't know Lamay he is built like Kevin Durant and wears jeans to match it. There are skinny jeans and there are Lamay jeans. The stakes were set and the rules were agreed upon. Here are coach's questions in order:

1) Is it a fictional charachter? ( no)
2) Do I know him personally? ( no)
3) Is he an entertainer? ( no)
4) Is he an athlete ( no)
5) Is he involved in media (no)
6) Is it Elian Gonzalez?

IT WAS ELIAN GONZALEZ!!!!! There was no foul play, because I hadn't told anyone who I was thinking of. The team went wild thinking about me rocking a deep, and I mean, DEEP V neck. It was LITERALLY the most shocking thing of my life. Coach demanded I blog about, and I think I had to. Just think about everyone on this planet and guessing one Cuban refugee from the late 90's. I now have to lose weight to prepare myself for those jeans.

The blog asks those who are above 21 to please drink responsibly.

Now on to actual lacrosse news:

We opened up with two losses to #2 ASU and #19 Arizona. ASU played like the #2 team in the country and cruised to a big win. The Arizona game was close the entire way through but one stretch in the third quarter where the Arizona Wildcats rattled off four straight goals proved to be the difference.

With one game left against #23 Santa Clara the Wildcats were determined to come back to Durham with a win. Well at the start of the fourth quarter it didn't look to good. We were down 9-4 heading into the final stanza. We stormed back to tie the game up 9-9 with a minute left. After a big stop by the defense we had the ball at the top of the box ( about 25 yards) we called a play drawn up by Evan Flower. The offense was to block the goalie as Evan was going to throw one on net and hopefully something would happen. Well I will save you the suspense and tell you somehow, someway, the ball found its way in the back of the net, giving the cats their first win and stunning the Broncos of Santa Clara in the process.

Here is the video of the game if you want to see the improbable goal. Fast forward to the 52 minute mark.



In addition to the amazing comeback and weather there is one other part that needs mentioning. Ed. Ed decided this week that he is the funniest kid on the team. When I asked him why he didn't score 15 goals against ASU so we could of won he responded " Coach didn't put me in, but it was probably a good decision because I don't think I would have played well." You can't coach that confidence.

Well I am off to buy a $7 dollar Men's Health magazine from Hudson News so I can read 10 new foods that shred your gut because, frankly, these jeans aren't going to grow.

Win #1. Cue The Music.

It's A Dry Heat

We have been in Arizona for about 36 hours now and some of us already look like we walked across the surface of the sun. Who says Irish Catholics can't tan? I say Tom Nazarro can't. Also, I know you have been patiently waiting for the mustache pictures, and I appreciate it. However, there has been some last minute Mustache strategy moves ( just for men). The pics will be up tomorrow.

We open our season tonight with #2 Arizona State. The Sun Devils already have a handful of games under their belt and have the advantage of being used to this "dry heat". It will take a team effort to throw the upset, and that's what the Wildcats have been focusing on this week in practice. Game time is at 7 oclock (10 pm Durham time). Pay attention to the twitter for up to the moment updates.

I think Norman Dale said it best...

Busy Day

Today the UNH team checks two important tasks off their long to do list. Flying to Arizona State, and gloriously showing off your mustache. 25 days ago I challenged the team to not shave. Today, we see the results. Stay tuned for pictures and 'stache related games.

Switching to the actual lacrosse news, the Wildcats are flying out to Tempe today for a 3 game road trip. We are excited to showcase are east coast skillz and our facial hair. I know everyone is worried that they won't have any new posts to read as they sip on a pina colada but have no fear, I will be checking in and filling you in on the happenings in zona.

P.S. This goes out to the Red Hot Buffs. We feel your pain on getting snubbed from March Madness. Apparently an 11-18 record partnered with a strength of schedule of 312 and a rpi of 274 just doesn't get you in anymore. While everyone in Boulder is complaining over a burrito at Illegal Petes right now just remember, we got jobbed as well

relax responsibly

WildChats II

No tricks up my sleeve. Lets meet Tom Nazarro or el pres as no one calls him.

As President of the UNH lax team, does a book of secrets actually exist?
Yes, it is in the Young Drive safe. Can't squak anymore.

If you were to compare your play to a Mighty Duck (fictional) who would it be?
I would have to say a blend of Russ Tyler and Kenny Wu...but not Chinese and Black

What is your favorite sandwich to order at Phillbrook?
Chicken bacon ranch, but the burrito bar takes the cake

Favorite Rocky movie?
The first one...only other acceptable answer is Rocky 4 ( I must break you)

Boxers or commando?
Sunday-Wed...boxers- Saturday...Commando

If you could have a rum bucket at the knot ( free advertisement) with anyone living or dead who would it be?
Tough question but Christopher Walken would have to be my choice

Do you know im still mad at you for calling me a fat sloppy goalie to your buddy the
other night?
I plead the fifth.

Do you like Rhino's?
No. What sound does a Rhino make though?

And the ceremonial last question:

If you could punch anyone in the face on the team ( besides me) who would it be?
Dan Hutchins who serves as the team VP and my roommate because of his general disregard for waking up to his alarm and his uncanny ability to be late to everything

The Post We Are all Waiting For

Ok, So this post was supposed to be earlier today but due to some logistical nightmares ( my doctors appointment) it had to wait til tonight. This is the post where you the viewer gets to decide what Samurai Kerrigan's face will look like next week. As we all know, the WildKatz have been growing some 'staches for the past couple weeks. Not to be outdone, Samurai vowed to let the people decide what to do with his bushy, and I mean BUSHY beard. Lets meet the candidates...

The mustache- The classics are a classic for reason. This is meat and potatos for dinner, the Power I in football, and Dave Matthews on the radio in the summer. Timeless

The Mutton Chops- Can't you just see Samurai walking down main street with a musket and this little number

The Foo Man Chu- The only thing harder than spelling it is growing it. I awkwardly think Samurai would pull this off, my darkhorse in the election.

Lastly, and without a doubt the most insane. This has no name because it has NO soul. That's right folks, the often talked about, seldom seen ....HALF BEARD!!! Most men scoff at this idea, Samurai laughs at it.

Ladies and gentlemen, your choices for Sam Kerrigan's facial hair. Think it over and decide what do you really see a 22 year old boy rock. Pictures to follow.

Recap of the SNHU Scrimmage

The Wildcats dropped their opening scrimmage 6-5 last night in Manchester against the Southern New Hampshire Penmen. The game was close the entire way with no team holding a greater than 2 goal lead. Here are just rapid fire, Monday Morning Goalie notes:

Who had Scott Lamay in their opening scrimmage first goal scorer pool? Good work Scott keep that train rolling.

We were 2-13 on manups and lost faceoffs 3 to 13...numbers we will need to fix before Arizona

We cycled in alot of defensemen with 9 total getting some time. The defense played well as a unit and had to deal with the SNHU offense a large portion of the time

Dan Milano needs to be respected as an outside shooter

Stokes doesn't seems to know what constitutes an illegal and legal stick. http://www.uslacrosse.org/LinkClick.aspx?fileticket=bJ_dPChmINw%3d&tabid=2462

We won the groundball and clearing war which are positive signs. No one will doubt our hustle between the restraining boxes

SNHU's pregame is comparable to a U2 concert

Our managers gps is broken

Garrett Buckley and John Ball's mustaches are coming in strong

Our new gray jerseys are ( as the kids say ) fresh to death

Good luck to SNHU this year.

Katz out

Game At SNHU Tonight

Sooo Jake how do you think its going to go?

Monday, February 28, 2011

First Contest Moved

You can win, you can lose, or it can rain. That is what can happen on gameday. Well, Mother Nature reared her ugly head yesterday and caused a delay in our first contest with Southern New Hampshire. For the diehards out there, the game has been moved to 6 o'clock on Tuesday night in Manchester. This will be the first time we have been able to play against somebody in a different colored jersey this season. Coach Clark is literally chomping at the bit (what?). See you there.

P.S. Stay tuned, because in the near future the blog will be conducting a poll on what you the reader wants Sam Kerrigan to grow for the facial hair challenge. This will be up sometime this week so if the hilarious writing and updates don't keep you coming back, voting in this poll should.

Tuesday, February 22, 2011


Well I survived my birthday weekend, much to the credit of one Michael Maloney. I want to thank everyone who came celebrated and put up my shananigans. Let's move on

This is the first of a sequence I am calling Wildchats ( see what I did there). I will be interviewing a player on the team periodically just to give the outsiders a look into the players who make up our squad. This may not be a 60 minutes type hard hitting question sequence, but it will be entertaining. Lets begin.

Q: You went to Oyster River and then obviously to UNH were you nervous venturing out far from home?
A: Considering my high school is in the same town as my college, no I was not nervous about venturing 10 minutes from home.

Q:Your older brother samurai is on the team describe that coincidence
A:bad question

Q:Any chance you’re going to grow a killer moustache like your brother?
A: Unfortunately I got all the height in the family, and sam got the hair. My moustache is going to be a little sparse in comparison.

Q:I couldnt help but notice your facebook default is a lax action shot from you in high school...dont you think thats a bit dated?
A: To be honest I change my facebook photo like twice a year. I just am too lazy to change it all the time. Ill post a new one within the week if that will make you happy.

Q:If you could punch one kid on the team ( besides me) who would it be and why
A: Paul Harvey, because you gotta hit the biggest kid to get respect
Dan Milano, because he gets to ride a bike instead of run laps
It’s a tie between the two

Q:You have about 5 inches and 30 pounds on your older brother ..did you always pick on him growing up
A:No, believe it or not the Samurai you know is a very different one back at the house. He is just a mean person. My extra height and weight have nothing over his brutality.

Just a joke Sam, don’t get mad at me.

Q:What was your favorite n64 game
A: Golden Eye was my favorite when N64 was in its prime, however Mario Cart is what we play in the dorm room.

Q:rumor has it you went to see afroman live at the stone church in newmarket..describe the show
A: first Id like to point out that I had no ambition in going to this show, my friend purchased the ticket without my knowledge. The show was terrible; Afroman is so broke he was accepting 1 or 2 dollars for people to take pictures with him. It was pathetic.

Q:where is youre favorite place to eat in durham
A:The Turbo Pocket from Pauly’s Pockets would have to be my go to. Unfortuently it’s a little out of my price range so I don’t eat it that frequently.

Q:pulp or no pulp
A:Absolutely no pulp

Q:are you a better texter or dancer
A:Id have to say im a slightly better dancer, Im not phenomenal at either however I get laughed at for my attempt at spelling big words in texts.

Q:how come you refuse to give me some sweet ORHS swag
As much as I have let go my high school grudges I cannot bring myself to give a St Thomas player Oyster River lacrosse apparel.

ladies and gentlemen...John "Afroman" Kerrigan

Shave today

If you are a fan of the UNH lacrosse team then get out the razors, get in a nice shave and then throw the razor away. Starting tomorrow, there will be no shaving for the wildkatz. For our trip out to Arizona the team has decided to grow out our facial hair for 25 days and then on the eve of the trip, shave it all but our mustaches. These eyes have seen some wild things, but touching down in Phoenix AZ with 25 rocking 'staches is going to be up at the top of the list.

Just to clarify if you want to join in, you may shave your disgusting neard but you may under no circumstances shave your mouth caterpillar.

Grow early, Grow often.

Whole Lotta Nothing

The first two weeks of lacrosse practice are just about in the books so I figured I'd check in. We will have our team solidified in a mere 8 hours so look out for the roster in the coming days. As for practice, well lets just say my sweet madras bro shorts are going to need a belt this spring if we keep our practice plan. Everyone is anxiously waiting to get outside so we can play in the friendly climate that is February in the Northeast.

Something that is bothering me about practice is people celebrating goals like they just wont trivia at the knot without the help of an iphone ( cough sam elmes cough). We are indoors and once goalies don't have to pick up white balls on a white background then you can start doing your 15 yard jog past the goal after you score. Does it take you that long to stop? I might have to get Hans to set up a castle of soda cans to teach you how to stop.

Our friends over at the Rocky Mountains gave us some sweet reviews on our new gloves. Here are there new "mittens."

Not bad not bad. I especially like the use of cursive. Reminds me of my phonics homework in third grade. One might ask, how come they don't have their state slogan on it? Well according to my thorough Wikipedia research the most recent slogan used on license plates were "Colorful Colorado." Not exactly as intimidating as live free or die. However, had I been in charge of design I would have definitely had : ( I have no idea when to use a colon ) Meet Me at The Walrus. Yes you can use that for next year.

Also I am going to steal/borrow/copy the interviewing a player. I hope we can still be friends.

The Day Has Finally Arrived

Dust off your tennis shoes, drink your doctor recommended eight glasses of water, and carbo load because UNH lacrosse officially starts off tonight at the convenient time of ten o clock. Coach Sullivan's practice plan (written on the back of a Ballard's napkin) was discovered on wikileaks.

11:55-11:59(good inspiring speech)
11:59-12:00 (thank me for winning every sprint and being an inspiration to all)

See you there.

Pre Season Over/Under

The season is just around the corner and I got unprecedented access to Vegas's over unders for UNH Lacrosse this season. What kind of a blogger would I be if I didn't share them. Get out your wallet cause I am paying for your spring break here. Let get started.

Over/Under Wins at 9.5 - I am taking the over of course. With 11 games and 3 of them against top 20 opponents, we are going to pull of an upset. Hammer the over

Over/Under Dan Milano Assists at 30.5 - I am taking the over. This may surprise some people as leading scorer Michael Maloney has since left. Maloney was a good finisher and got many of his goals from Milano (despite his shockingly low athletic ability). However, it is forgotten how many assists Milano WOULD have had simply if Maloney learned how to fake a goalie and did not insist on shooting high. With the same attack unit returning, I am actually going to take the over on Milano's assists. Play the over, but don't hammer it

Over/Under Mark Cochrane Lazy Penalties at 6.5- Whispers on the wind are that Mark Cochrane was so inspired by Natalie Portman's performance in Black Swan he dedicated himself to better footwork. I'm taking the under

Over/ Under sprints I Win .5- Under.

Over/ Under Tom Nazarro and Tim Harrington combined goals .5- Over. Heard it here first

Over/Under times Coach St. Germain tells the defense that communication is key 309108109394.5- Over. John Nash would have a hard time calculating this one.

Over/ Under times Scott Lamay makes me feel uncomfortable with his wardrobe 5.5- Over

Over/ Under save percentage this year 65 - Over. I would bet my house with my mother in it on this one, and I did.

Over/ Under Barry Katz led tailgates this year 4.5- Under. As much as it pains me with only 5 home games even the greats have scheduling conflicts such as parenting.

Over/ Under PCLL titles this year for UNH .5- Over.

Tonight is the night. After running by everybody all season the Ducks head down to Arizona to take on the Auburn Tigers and the best recruit money can buy in Cam Newton. If you are a sports fan this is game is a must watch. The Ducks average 50 points a game and could march down the field faster than Drew O'Connor can get down a steak and cheese. The game also has some ties to the great UNH as the head coach Chip Kelly was the offensive coordinator for the Wildcats before taking the job in Eugene.

I can not wait for the game which kicks off at 8:30 ET. I will be loud cheering on the Ducks and going pushup for pushup with the mascot after every touchdown.
