College Crosse News.

It seems like everyone had a scrimmage yesterday. Let’s go around the horn and check out all the results from a hectic Saturday.

Big day up at Syracuse as the program unveiled a beautiful statue of former head coaches Roy Simmons, Sr. & Roy Simmons, Jr. during their alumni weekend festivities.

Ugly story out of Oregon: Lacrosse mom files $10,000 lawsuit alleging another fan spat in her face at a high school game.

Though I’m always on the hunt for interesting lacrosse-related stories to give to you the People, this one out of The Oregonian definitely stuck out. According to author Aimee Green, a Beavertown, OR woman, Amy Duitsman, was at a lacrosse game between Sunset High School and Oregon Episcopal School to cheer on her son, a Sunset player, in his final high school game. At some point early in the game, Duitsman alleges that “another spectator, Brianna Moody, began arguing with her and ultimately spat in her face.”

Lacrosse is blowing up in Croatia, fam: Members of Croatian national team at Zagreb TV show Good Morning talking lacrosse.

Here’s a great video of the Team Philippines Field Lacrosse tryout in Cortland, NY.

What’s Up, PhilaJersey?

Ocean City, NEW JERSEY, saw record crowds for its Columbus Day festivities.

Where are the best boardwalk bargains? There’s an app for that! For the first time in this resort’s farewell-to-summer blowout sales, the Ocean City Regional Chamber of Commerce and Ocean City Tourism Commission used social media , is promoted. About 80,000 emails were sent to residents, second-home owners, and regulars; an additional 139,000 Facebook friends were told with push notifications on a new app of all the summer events. And it was the first year for online ads on Google and Yahoo, among other sites. It paid off. The Indian Summer Weekend event in Ocean City attracted its largest crowd in memory — more than 50,000 — for the traditional table sales along the boardwalk, crafts fair in the business district, and shops along Asbury Avenue.

Also, I saw Sixers GM Bryan Colangelo yesterday near Parc by Rittenhouse Square yesterday.

World/National News.

USA Today did a 50 Most Livable Cities post, but didn’t include Philly. SAD!!!

As the land of opportunity, the United States has attracted people from around the world for centuries. Yet not all parts of the country are equally desirable, and some cities are far more livable than others. On an individual level, subjective measures often override other, more objective, considerations. Sometimes, we live in a place simply because it is where we grew up — it is familiar and where we feel at ease. Still, a range of factors can help compare U.S. cities objectively. Low crime, a healthy economy and affordability are just a few examples of universally desirable attributes in any community. 24/7 Wall St. created an index of over three dozen socioeconomic measures to identify the 50 best American cities to live in. The most livable cities span the country — from the Deep South to New England and from the Mid-Atlantic to the Pacific Northwest.
