GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD MORNING, College Crosse Nation!! Thanks for making us a part of your day! Sorry for the delay this morning, I got a pretty bad stomach bug last night during the epic National Championship game. Anyway, let’s get to the positive stuff, also known as the links!

Speaking of Snapchat, here’s the videos from yesterday before they go away!

There’s also photos from the day to check out. In the team picture, there’s one player that you may know...
That’s J.T. Forkin, who was at Nassau Community College last year. He was previously at Syracuse two years ago, and also was not on the roster during the fall. He is back on the team sporting the #39.
There are a few other changes worth noting. Walk-on freshman defenseman Connor Flanagan from Jamesville-DeWitt is #14 after wearing #53 in the fall. Sophomore goaltender Willie Klan is sporting his third number as a member of the Orange, wearing #77 after beginning with #50, followed by #14 after Rob Orazietti left the team. Rob’s brother, Alec Orazietti, is now at Fairleigh Dickinson playing on their team.
Finally, John Desko’s opening press conference:
Teams have started practices.
Some of them soon.
Some are getting their pictures taken.
While others have some sick gear this year.
Finally, HOLY BEARD!
Lafayette announced their three captains for the upcoming season.
Syracuse and Hobart’s tilt from 1989 is on YouTube now!
U2 is coming to the Linc this summer.

VIDEO OF THE DAY
I saw this for the first time last night and it’s fantastic. I later did some research and found out that it wasn’t a school play. Instead, some director hired child actors and filmed all of this in LA’s Koreatown section. Still, it’s great.
