College Crosse News.

The New White House Communications Director is a big lacrosse fan.

Anthony Scaramucci, an entrepreneur, financier, and author from Long Island, was today announced as the new White House Communications Director. Scaramucci is obviously a successful guy, and it’s always great when someone from the Island gets on-stage in a big way, but what stands out most about Mr. Scaramucci for our purposes is his love for lacrosse.

A new Marvel show on Hulu has a lacrosse twist.

Gregg Sulkinis is set as Chase Stein, a lacrosse-playing high school heartthrob. While many write him off as a dumb jock, Chase exhibits flashes of untapped brilliance in engineering, not unlike his wildly successful father’s.

Speaking of the intersection of lacrosse & Hollywood, Teen Wolf is back!

The NCAA has approved free movement in women’s lacrosse.

The NCAA Playing Rules Oversight Panel on Thursday approved a proposal to allow free movement in women’s lacrosse.

The change is intended to improve the pace and flow of the game by allowing players to continue moving after the official blows the whistle. Previously, all players had to stop on the whistle.

Under the new rule, players can keep moving after a foul or violation while the player possessing the ball restarts play. A 2-meter nonengagement area will be established around the player awarded possession of the ball.

Players will be free to move outside the nonengagement area. For violations of the nonengagement area, or delays clearing out of the nonengagement area, teams will receive one initial team warning. Subsequent violations and delays will result in a green card and immediate one-minute penalty.

Good article about the creators of East Coast Dyes.

In another life, Greg Kenneally could be in a suit and tie crunching numbers for a large accounting firm. But you'll find him in Towson wearing flip flops and shorts, stringing sticks, engineering mesh and maybe ripping a few shots from the break room. He and his twin brother Mike started East Coast Dyes from their parents' basement after graduating college in 2012. "Instead of going back and being a busboy, I thought why don't I string some sticks and eventually I got around to inventing this waterproof wax lacrosse mesh in the basement of our house," Greg said. "And for a long time it was just a hobby and then it started to pick up some steam."

The Bitter Lacrosse Tournament in Stowe Vermont nearly took down cell phone service in the town.

The crowds brought business to Stowe, but they also jammed cell networks across a wide part of town. Caleb Magoon, who owns Power Play Sports in Morrisville, was at the tournament with four booths set up to sell gear.

He said that, while he could make a phone call, he couldn’t text photos or use data on his phone, and his customers were experiencing similar challenges.

“We had credit card processing. We had a really difficult time making it work,” Magoon said. “It was slow, so slow that, when we’re running a credit card, it was timing out. You have to swipe it three or four times to get it to go, and there were some that wouldn’t go.”

Here's another good article on former lacrosse player and firefighter Trenton Johnson.

“He was my favorite player that I ever coached,” said Kevin Flynn, a former Hellgate lacrosse coach. “He started for us all four years, and we won the state title all four years. He made varsity as a freshman and came to every game of his career, so he played more games than any other player for Hellgate.” Flynn said he started working with Johnson in sixth grade. “He was one of those goofy, gangly, non-athletic kids that found something he could get good at,” Flynn said. “He turned into a great player, a great teammate and a captain for us. He was well-liked by everybody.”

What’s Up, PhilaJersey?

This sounds interesting: West Philly Artist will bring you a surprise pizza.

Wanna crush some ‘za but don’t feel like going outside? You’ve got several options for delivery, from schmancy chef-driven pizza through Caviar to your neighborhood pizza joint. With luck, you’ll be eating an ok-to-pretty-good (depending on your location and desired price point), still-hot pizza within an hour. But where’s the fun in that? Instead, you could let West Philly-based theater artist and performer Donna Oblongata bring you a pizza…sometime. Somewhere, at a location you’re likely to be (a little social media sleuthing might be involved). And there’s no telling what she’ll put on it.
That’s the premise of My Pizza, My Idea, a (roughly) annually recurring, one-month-only “ephemeral pizza company,” in which Oblongata and collaborator Patrick Costello take signups for surprise pizza deliveries made in an outdoor wood-fired pizza oven Oblongata built herself.

World/National News.

China banned Justin Bieber.

When a Chinese Bieber fan contacted the Beijing Municipal Bureau of Culture to ask why her idol hasn't been seen in the country for several years, despite scheduling dates in nearby Hong Kong, Japan, Singapore and the Philippines on the Asian leg of his latest world tour, they were met with a friendly if firm response. "Justin Bieber is a gifted singer, but he is also a controversial young foreign singer," the bureau told the fan in a statement. "In order to maintain order in the Chinese market and purify the Chinese performance environment, it is not suitable to bring in badly behaved entertainers.
