You guys!  The 2011 NCAA men's college lacrosse tournament totally starts today!

The opening game is a badass way to kick off The March to Memorial Day.  In one corner, the host and three-seed in the tournament, the Johns Hopkins University Blue Jays.  Featuring youthful talent all over the field, the 'Jays are poised to make a deep run in the post-season.

In the other corner, the Hofstra University Pride.  With a guady 13-2 record (each loss was to Delaware), the Pride feature one of the best offenses in the country.  Teams don't pick their poison when they play Hofstra; Hofstra picks it for them.

It should be a hell of a show and it all starts at noon on ESPN2.

Justin will be along to provide some in-game commentary and post-game thoughts.  He'll rock this all out right after the jump.  Your comments are valuable as well, so leave all of those beautiful bon mots in the handy dandy commenting device.
