STAND UP, Rhode Island!!!: Providence to host the 2017 Big East Tournament.

Nice article about (PHILLY BUSINESS) Hummingbird Sports and their new helmet for women's lacrosse.

Stolker is an avid sports fan who has enthusiastically coached his four daughters, ages 17, 15, 13 and 11, in a range of sports, including soccer, basketball and volleyball. His current business came about after his two youngest daughters wanted to play lacrosse.

“I knew nothing about the sport, which is played with a hard ball and sticks, but I signed them up and was in shock when I saw the difference in the girls’ protective equipment versus the boys’,” Stolker said. “While the boys had hard helmets and shoulder and knee pads, the girls only had goggles to cover their eyes. I couldn’t believe the girls didn’t wear headgear.”

In an effort to try to buy his daughters some protective headgear, “I went online and found that there was no such thing,” he said. “While I know that boys’ lacrosse is a more physical, territorial game than girls’ lacrosse, which has traditionally involved more running and finesse, I’ve seen the results of head trauma in other sports and know that the ramifications can be devastating.”

Our boy Chris wrote up a great article on the top Ivy League games to watch next season.

Get after it, lads!

Nice article about Greg “The Stick Doctor” Kenneally.

Study says that your work performance takes a dive after your team loses.

In the study, researchers polled a group of soccer fans for four weeks. On each Monday after their teams played on Sunday, the participants rated their mood, work engagement, and job performance.
The verdict: When their team lost, they reported more negatively on all three counts.
