GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD MORNING, College Crosse Nation!! Thanks for making us a part of your day! Here are your links for August 7, 2017.

College Crosse News.

Incoming freshman lacrosse player (who played varsity in 2017) finished 5th in the 2017 Reebok CrossFit Games.

“I was hoping just to get into the top 10,” he said. “When I got a taste of top five it made me even hungrier.” Indeed, Gallaher was in eighth place after the first two days of competition and moved up to sixth after Saturday. Gallaher, 14, is still a month away from actually entering high school, although he played on the Wappingers boys lacrosse varsity. He was one of 640 elite athletes from 31 countries competing in various age groups at the 12th annual championships, which are considered the world’s premier, most grueling test to find the toughest and most fit athletes on Earth. He was the youngest male athlete at the competition.

I missed this earlier, but here’s a cool virtual reality video from the MLL featuring John Grant, Jr.

Here’s a nice post in the Delmarva Now on the Quiet Storm Lacrosse club.

Brendan Bromwell has been a nightmare for opposing lacrosse teams for the past several seasons. A four-year midfielder for the Salisbury University men’s lacrosse team, Bromwell served as a key piece in the Sea Gulls' back-to-back national championship victories in 2016 and 2017. During his senior season, the Woolford native posted 32 goals, 25 assists and scooped up 52 turnovers. His play didn’t go unnoticed, as Bromwell earned All-CAC First Team honors while also serving as one of Salisbury’s team captains. But had it not been for one decision during his high school days at Cambridge-South Dorchester, Bromwell may not have become a lacrosse superstar, and Salisbury may not have won its 11th and 12th championships. That decision — to join the Quiet Storm Lacrosse club, a travel team designed to enhance high school lacrosse players' skills while giving them a setting to perform in front of college coaches.

Looks like Chris had a great time on his last day at Lake Placid.


What’s Up, PhilaJersey?

R.I.P. to Phillies great, Darren Daulton. with an interesting post about why NFL fans tuned out last season.

The NFL suffered a ratings blow last season, with an average 8 percent decline in viewership for the 2016 regular season compared with the previous year, according to numbers obtained by ESPN. Now, we’re getting some potential insight why. Ten percent of respondents in a new JD Power survey said they watched fewer NFL games on television, and 16 percent said they attended fewer games in person. Of those who said they were viewing less football, the most common reason for tuning out — cited by 26 percent of respondents — was protests of the national anthem, led by former 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick. Here in Philadelphia, where 13 percent of those surveyed said they watched less football and 18 percent reported attending fewer games, it was penalty flags that bugged fans the most.

That’s a bold move: Vegan cafe charges male customers 18 percent ‘man tax’ and seats women first in bid to address gender pay gap.

A CAFE is making waves after it began charging blokes more money in a bid to close the gender pay gap. The feminist vegan owner of Handsome Her eatery in Melbourne, Australia, is making them pay an 18 per cent “man tax” as well as giving women priority over seating.Owner Alex O’Brien told Broadsheet website: “I do want people to think about it, because we’ve had this (pay discrepancy) for decades and decades and we’re bringing it to the forefront of people’s minds. “I like that it is making men stop and question their privilege a little bit.” Ms O’Brien says the response from her customers has been positive, with one man even donating $50 (£30) to the cause. She said: “There’s been nothing but positivity from everyone, males and females.”
