Philadelphia Flyers prospect Matt Strome with a lacrosse goal last night and it was lit.

Great post about a North Penn lacrosse player going on a service mission to Haiti.

As a midfielder in lacrosse, Stephen Rinck has to maintain a certain perspective of what’s going on around him on the field.

Off the field, the North Penn junior carries that same perspective with him in his daily life. Rinck understands the opportunities and advantages provided him not only as a high school athlete, but as young man growing up in the United States.

That’s why when Rinck was nominated to take part in a service trip to Haiti this summer, he was eager to be a part of it.

“After looking into it, it seemed like a great opportunity to expand my horizons and really know what was going on in the world,” Rinck said. “It’ll give me a new perspective on life and get a sense for what these people are dealing with all the time.”

Haiti is still rebuilding from the massive earthquake that struck the island nation in 2010 and many of its inhabitants live in poverty. The purpose of the service trip, run by nonprofit Poverty Resolutions, is to help improve the lives of Haitians in some of these communities.

I don't know when this video was actually made but bless whomever uploaded it to YouTube yesterday.

Here’s a great story out of Tampa, FL.

Grace Armenia isn’t like teenage girls her age. She isn’t worried about finding a boyfriend or getting her learners permit. But, she is searching for happiness and to be a part of something special. In July, Grace’s family says a coach for a local lacrosse team saw her out getting a lacrosse lesson and asked if Grace wanted to be the team’s goalie.

Robert and Ericka Armenia thought it was a good idea and they’d give it a shot. “I knew she was tough and I knew she could handle that,” Robert Armenia said. The family says the coach told them she might play as goalie sometime next year, depending on how well she did. Weeks later Grace was off the bench and in the game and faced with making her first big play, blocking a goal. “She went in there and she was a champ,” Ericka Armenia said. “The stick was coming up and coming at her and she blocked it. The feeling was just everything, gratefulness, excitement. Just to see her face her confidence and to see her light up knowing she did something good. It’s made her feel part of a team.”

Fred Opie uploaded a new podcast with three time US national team goalie and USC Associate Head Women’s Lacrosse Coach Devon Wills as his guest.

Here’s some behind-the-scenes footage of Anna’s Lacrosse Date by the Mohawk Girls.

What’s Up, PhilaJersey?

Looks like Old City might finally be getting a Wawa.

Although there are a lot of things we don’t like about Old City, there are plenty of things on our Pros list as well: The Arden Theatre, FringeArts, Fork, the Khyber, Franklin Fountain, Shane’s, and the Ritz cinemas, to name a few. But one thing that Old City doesn’t have that it definitely needs is a Wawa. And one might be coming soon. According to OCF Realty’s blog, Philly’s beloved convenience store is planning to open a new location on the first floor of the historic Public Ledger Building on 6th and Chestnut streets – right across from Independence Hall.

The space that could soon be an Old City Wawa was previously one of those Philadelphia gift shops selling a bunch of nicknacks and tchotchkes that nobody needs. Safe to say that a Wawa would be an upgrade.

Stop overfeeding your doggo!!: “Dogs face obesity epidemic 'because humans are killing them with kindness.’”

Dogs face an ­obesity epidemic like humans and are at risk of being killed with kindness. A worrying 90 per cent of owners don’t know how many calories their pets should have and give treats to pleading pooches . Some 29 per cent fail to measure portions and 20 per cent can’t tell if their dog is fat, a survey by pet food manufacturer tails.com also found. To make matters worse, 13 per cent of owners lie to their vets about their pets’ eating habits. Vet Sean McCormack warns that dogs can get diabetes, arthritis and joint problems by eating too much.
