GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD MORNING, College Crosse Nation!! Thanks for making us a part of your day! Here are your links for January 11, 2017.

College Crosse News.

Talk about being blindsided. Longtime ESPN lacrosse play-by-play announcer, Eamon McAnaney, left ESPN for a full-time job with SNY.

Didn’t we almost have it all.

It’s going to be a little weird without Eamon this spring. His energy was infectious and he always seemed like a really good person. We wish him the very best and hope he still follows the game at his new gig.

Here are a few classic Eamon clips that I thought you’d all enjoy.

Who can forget this all-time call by Eamon of Blaze Riorden’s goal against Cornell in the 2015 tournament.

Eamon post-game with Ryan Boyle after the stunning 2014 tournament upset by unseeded Bryant over #2 seed Syracuse in the Carrier Dome.

Eamon & Paul Carcaterra having a nice conversation during an extended MLL face-off.

Here’s Eamon and Quint breaking down why Ryan Brown is the Steph Curry of college lacrosse.

Eamon on the Lax Report. I think this is from 2008.

Here’s another Lax Report segment. This one from the 2008 Final Four.


If you didn’t get enough Syracuse media day content yesterday, here’s a great interview with Orange face-off GAWD Ben Williams.

Also, check out this great profile on Denver transfer Brendan “Mr. Big Shot” Bomberry.

Bomberry is perhaps SU's most important addition this season, a transfer from Denver who speaks confidently and unleashes a heavy shot. Bomberry was an important part of the Pioneers juggernaut the past two years and last season tallied 33 points and led the nation with 11 man-up goals.

That's the sort of production that the Orange will hunger for as it tries to replace a slew of departed scorers such as Dylan Donahue and Tim Barber.

"If there is pressure, I really enjoy that. I like to think of myself as a pressure player,'' Bomberry said. "I also put pressure on myself to really perform up to my standards and think that will really help me, and hopefully the team, win.''

Maryland adds former Navy LSM Zack Schroeder as its new Director of Lacrosse Operations.

“We are excited to welcome Zack, his wife Megan and his children, Brynnlee and Griffin, to the University of Maryland lacrosse family,” Tillman said. “I have personally known Zack for more than 10 years. He has an impressive background both on and off the field, and will be a great mentor for our student-athletes.”

A 2010 graduate of the United States Naval Academy, Schroeder brings a bevy of lacrosse experience to Maryland. Schroeder most recently coached lacrosse at Keller High School in Texas, upon finishing his five years of service as a Supply Corps Officer in the Navy with tours in Newport, Norfolk and Guam.

“I am extremely grateful to Coach Tillman and the University of Maryland for giving me this opportunity,” Schroeder said. “I am excited to join the Maryland lacrosse family.”

Mercer’s ready to get after it.

Colby College received a $2 million gift to name its men’s lacrosse coaching position in memory of late coach Jack Sandler.

“Colby’s coach-as-educator model was personified by Jack Sandler,” said Tim Wheaton, the Harold Alfond Director of Athletics. “This gift keeps him in our minds and reminds us of the important role our coaches play in the education of our students.”

Sandler, 35, died during his third season at Colby. He had led the Mules to the conference playoffs in each of his first two years as coach. Prior to Colby, he had spent eight seasons as head coach at Skidmore College. He was the second all-time leading scorer at Bates College, where he graduated in 2002, and spent time as an assistant at Dickinson College in Carlisle, Pa.

What’s Up, Philly?

Philadelphia’s Stephen Starr’s new NYC establishment was named the best resturaunt of 2016 by the NY Times.

No, this isn't a 1970s flashback. Le Coucou in all its reimagined classic French glory is the talk of New York's dinerati right now, just crowned the best restaurant of 2016 by the New York Times and one of the best "of the century" by the New York Post.

It's also one of the most unexpected creations yet from Philly's Stephen Starr, who, in the decade since opening supersized versions of Buddakan and Morimoto in Manhattan, has gone from "carpetbagger" status known for trendy megahits with mass appeal to a darling of New York's fine dining elite, along with partner and chef Daniel Rose.

A California woman is suing Chipotle for $2.2 BILLION over a photograph.

According to Caldwell, her photograph was taken in the summer or early fall of 2006 when she was sitting inside a Chipotle restaurant near the University of Denver. A man approached and asked her to sign a photo release waiver that would have allowed him to use some photographs he had taken, Caldwell said.

Caldwell said she refused to sign the release.

She said she was engaged “in the personal activity of eating in a nearly empty restaurant” and had a “reasonable expectation of privacy.” She accused the photographer of invading her privacy.
