Below is our 2018 preseason
spreadsheet Matrix that I created over the weekend. Clicking on a team’s name will take you to that team’s homepage, and clicking on the roster cell will take you to that team’s 2018 roster page. Not every team has their 2018 roster up, but we’ll update the spreadsheet Matrix as more become available. As team’s start to release their schedules we’ll add those links under the schedule column as well. Additionally, we are going to get back to our 2018 previews of each team, and will add those links to the spreadsheet Matrix too. 2018 will be here before you even know it, so start reading up on your favorite teams to prepare for the season.

The new documentary “Man In Red Bandana,” about former Boston College lacrosse player Welles Crowther and his heroism on September 11th, opened nationwide over the weekend. Welles’ memory is still strong in the lacrosse community, and his selfless acts on September 11, 2001 provide a lasting legacy for many who come to the memorial site in New York City to pay their respects.
Several large outlets reviewed the film this weekend, including the the New York Times, the Hollywood Reporter, & the LA Times. The film has received some pretty glowing reviews, and by the looks of the film’s Twitter account, the movie has started to gain a good amount of attention.

Additionally, the director of the movie talked to LSN on Saturday about making the film and how Welles’ story impacted him. You can find a clip from the interview directly below.
Obviously the movie is about a difficult subject matter, but by all accounts many have found the film emotional and uplifting. If you want to see the movie, but it is not playing in a theater near you, you can find it on iTunes. Here’s the trailer for the documentary .

Hampton Roads is the only major metro area that doesn’t offer public high school varsity lacrosse from Boston to Florida. It’s true — despite the fact lacrosse is the fastest growing high school sport in America. Only club lacrosse teams are offered in some Hampton Roads public high schools, such as Princess Anne.

Miss North Dakota won the 2018 Miss America pageant in Atlantic City’s Boardwalk Hall last night.
Miss North Dakota Cara Mund was crowned the new Miss America Sunday night at following a stunning performance as a dancer that garnered a raucous ovation from much of the crowd at Boardwalk Hall.
Mund, who is aspiring to become the first female governor of her state, is the first contestant from North Dakota to win the competition or even qualify for the top five.
She will now travel thousands of miles a month touring the country this year promoting her platform, Make-A-Wish Passion with Fashion.
It’s uncommon for a Week 1 victory to be celebrated by dousing a second-year head coach in Gatorade. But coach Doug Pederson’s wet pullover after the Eagles’ 30-17 win over the Washington Redskins Sunday demonstrated just how significant the Eagles viewed their season-opening victory over a menacing division foe, a game that had pulsed each decision and practice since the team started training camp in July.
The Eagles used a swarming defense to halt a five-game losing streak to Washington and win their first road game since last September. They advanced to 1-0 before a challenging visit to Kansas City to play former Eagles coach Andy Reid next week.
The defense allowed only 10 points and forced three turnovers – the special teams chipped in another – to help an offense that showed improved firepower, but still has areas that must be improve. It was the Eagles’ first win over the Redskins since Sept. 21, 2014.
I’ve already booked my flight for Minneapolis.
A little white winged pod lifts itself off the ground and glides off into the distance. The whole movement looks effortless. It’s like watching Luke Skywalker’s Landspeeder – except we’re in a nondescript airfield in Germany, not the planet Tatooine. Echoes of Star Wars perhaps help explain why last week the pod’s maker, Lilium, secured $90m (£69m) investment from, among others, Chinese tech giant Tencent – although the company states its aim has more to do with solving transport problems: “We have highly congested cities and we can do things to improve matters,” said Lilium’s Remo Gerber. “We’re trying to move from a niche transport vehicle to a mass-transport one”.
Lilium is not flying solo. Prototypes by rival ventures are also passing their test flights. So the prospect of flying cars may not be all that far away. Here are six projects working towards bringing Back to the Future into the present.
