Shout out to the Denver men’s lacrosse Twitter account for sliding this link into my DMs: “Kiszla: Denver Pioneers don’t need no stinkin’ football to be big winners in college sports.”

Football rules the USA. Americans love pigskin almost as much as bacon. The Pioneers know there’s no arguing with the truth, and have no beef with a football-crazy nation.

But here’s what DU has figured out. No football team is no hindrance.

“For us, it is a blessing,” Bradley-Doppes says. “There is no caste system with our sports programs.”

When football is the big man on campus, every other athlete hungry for recognition gets a piece of the pie only after the offensive linemen have filled their bellies in the cafeteria.

I did a long post on Ohio State’s 2017 season.

All of Philly is behind Matt Rambo: “Matt Rambo and Maryland out to end losing streak in NCAA lacrosse finals.”

Matt Rambo is heading into his fourth championship weekend for the Maryland men's lacrosse team, and while the setting has changed, the magnitude has not. "It's an awesome experience for everyone, especially the younger guys," said Rambo, a Glenside native. "You don't know if you'll ever get to championship weekend because it's so hard to get to. I'm going to probably take this in." A La Salle High graduate, Rambo has savored this stage before, but it has only ended in heartbreak. Since their last title in 1975, the Terps have lost nine NCAA championship games, including four of the last six, a painful streak for one of the sport's most successful programs. Rambo has one last opportunity to end it this weekend at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Mass. The Terrapins play Denver in the semifinals on Saturday at 2:30 p.m. while Ohio State and Towson await on the other side of the bracket. The championship is Monday at 1 p.m.

Yooooo, chill out, Texas!!: “Internationally-renowned lung transplant surgeon, 51, 'shoved a lacrosse stick in a female family member's face and keyed a Porsche causing $10,000 of damage.'“

An internationally renowned lung transplant surgeon allegedly shoved a lacrosse stick in a female family member's face. David Park Mason, 51, 'caused pain' when he attacked the woman last month in Southlake, Texas, according to police records. The surgeon also allegedly caused $10,000 in damage to a 2006 Porsche convertible. He is said to have 'used a key to stab and scratch all panels of the vehicle,' Dallas News reported. He owns a similar car to the Porsche, but records do not state who owns the keyed car. Mason, who was described as an 'international leader in the field of lung transplantation', has not been charged for keying the car - but is charged with assaulting a family member. The exact relationship between the Boston-born surgeon and the woman is not known.

Great segment by ABC 2 on Missy Fanshaw & her two Final Four sons.

What’s Up, Philly?

Just like everyone else in Philly, this big shark is heading to the Jersey Shore for Memorial Day Weekend.

Memorial Day Weekend down the shore is always a time when Philadelphians encounter unexpected guests at their holiday barbecues. Doesn’t it always seem like it’s somebody from your distant past who isn’t exactly a welcomed addition to the party? This year, that freeloader could very well be Mary Lee – a roughly 3,500-pound great white shark who was pinged just east of Assateague Island off the Virginia-Maryland coast. reports that Mary Lee has traveled approximately 40 miles in the last 24 hours and is still heading north.

World/National News.

”Why the constant earthquakes? Iceland is slowly being torn apart.”

In an average week Iceland's national monitoring seismic network detects around 500 earthquakes. If one of the volcanoes is hit by an earthquake swarm this number can be even higher. Iceland is being "torn apart" The reason for this seismic activity is the location of Iceland on top the Atlantic ridge, the divergent boundary between the Eurasian and North American tectonic plates: As the two plates drift in opposite directions Iceland is in effect slowly being split apart. The rate of spreading along the Mid-Atlantic Ridge averages about 2.5 centimeters (1 inch) per year, or 25 kilometers (15.5 miles) in a million years.
The volcanic zones in Iceland are directly above the boundary of the tectonic plates. These extend east from Reykjanes peninsula in the S.W. where the Reykjanes ridge part of the North Atlantic ridge effectively rises above the sea level, and north-east from Mýrdalsjökull glacier in South Iceland, beneath the western part of Vatnajökull glacier, the Central Highlands, extending north into the Arctic.
