College Crosse Birthday Week.
Today is my birthday (Happy birthday to Angelina Jolie, Noah Wyle, and Bar Refaeli, as well!!), which is why Liya Kebede is our lead picture of the day. It was between her and Vanessa Hudgens.

Chris and I did a fun article on the top 10 2017 OT goals (AKA #WhitneyInOT goals)
To commemorate the fun season we had, Safe and I put together a list of our Top 10 #WhitneyInOT Goals from 2017. I not only look at the goal scored, but also the celebration that followed afterward. Safe is a big fan of celebration but he also likes the longer videos that play out the entire ending. Let us know what were some of your favorites in the comments section below.

Lacrosse is all the rage in Rhode Island.
“Popularity is at an all-time high and there are club programs all over the state now,” says Martha Bennett, a former player at Dartmouth College who coaches at the Lincoln School. “Rhode Island still has a long ways to go to catch up to the real hotbeds but there are talented players in the state.”
College coaches are noticing. Rhode Island has sent its share of top-end talent to major colleges over the years, most notably Tewaaraton Award winner Chris Rotelli (Moses Brown) and Colin Briggs (Hendricken), both of whom starred at Virginia. But there are more good players, at more schools, than ever before. La Salle grad Joe Manown was Duke’s fourth-leading scorer this year as a freshman and both the Rams and Moses Brown are stocked with Division I college recruits.
The same goes for the girls. Rhode Islanders played key roles at schools like Brown and Dartmouth this spring and more are on the way. Moses Brown, which beat Wheeler, 18-5, on Saturday for their fourth title in six years, boasts two of the top sophomores in New England in Kari Buonanno (headed to Princeton) and Meredith Langmuir (Harvard).
Smart man. #TheDuopoly

Terps tribute posts are still coming. Here’s a nice one by Terrapin Station MD.
Throughout the 2017 season, the likes of Matt Rambo, Connor Kelly, and Colin Heacock were the go-to guys in big moments for Maryland. However, on Monday, it was quite a different showing for the Terps. The trio only combined for three total points. Instead, several of Maryland’s role players that don’t get a ton of publicity rose to the occasion. Attackman Dylan Maltz registered two goals and an assist on the afternoon. He was one of Maryland’s most productive players, which is ironic since he was the only starting Maryland attackman that didn’t receive All-American honors. Maltz benefitted from a great deal of Ohio State’s attention being placed on Heacock, Kelly, and Rambo. On his first goal, he found himself matched up against a short-stick defender and blew by his man on the way to the cage.

What’s Up, Philly?
Memories of Reggie White: Eagles defensive end officiated a wedding for a Bucks County couple.
What are some ways that diehard Philly sports fan couples incorporate their love for our teams into their wedding day? Usually it’s a small nod to the effect of naming tables after favorite players, a funny wedding cake topper or having the DJ play “1 2 3 4 5 Sixers.” But that wasn’t enough for one lucky Bucks County couple, who won WIP’s Dream Sports Wedding contest and had Eagles defensive end Brandon Graham officiate their nuptials on Thursday at Celebrations Wedding Venue in Bensalem. The marriage of Warminster’s Tara Hughes and Fred Reichwein was the first for Rev. Graham, a licensed minister with the Universal Life Church who has 29 career sacks in his other line of work.
London was hit by another horrific terror attack last night. It was the 3rd attack in 3 months. Seven people are dead & 43 were injured.
Police are today seeking the identities of three Jihadi terrorists who were shot dead by armed police after killing seven people and injuring dozens of others in a horrific van and knife rampage through central London last night. The men, described as being 'of Mediterranean origin', mowed down up to 20 revellers as they careered across London Bridge in an 'S shape' at 50mph before they began 'randomly stabbing' people in nearby Borough Market. Today five people were reportedly arrested in an early morning raid on a block of flats in Barking, east London, as police launch a major investigation into what is the third terror attack on British soil in the last three months.
