The GOAT (Casey Powell) was inducted into the National Lacrosse Hall of Fame last night. Here’s a great article from the Watertown Daily Times about how Casey went from a West Carthage, NY BALLER into a star.
The legacy of the Powell family in lacrosse literally began when they were youngsters playing around a net set up in their backyard in West Carthage. Since then, the sport has taken the three brothers — Casey, Ryan and Mike — to glory and success at different levels, from their high school days, to stardom at Syracuse University, and into the pro and international ranks and beyond.
They have accomplished so much that the Powells can be aptly called the first family of lacrosse — not only with their roots in the north country — but throughout the nation and the world as well, as they’ve elevated the game to an even higher status.
Everyone was very happy for Casey.

I thought this kid honored Casey in the best way possible.
It was also a big night for Hopkins & UMBC fans as the great Don Zimmerman was also inducted into the National Lacrosse Hall of Fame last night. Here’s a great article from US Lacrosse by Patrick Stevens on BOSS Zimmerman’s wonderful career.
As Dave Pietramala was getting started in his coaching career as an assistant at Penn, he met with a player about an academic issue. Shortly after the player walked out, Pietramala — the former star Johns Hopkins defenseman and future steward of the Blue Jays’ program — called his old college coach. “Darned if I didn’t sound just like you,” Pietramala told Don Zimmeman. “I look at it as I’m proud that I have some of those qualities from him,” Pietramala said. “He’s a good man, he’s an honest guy and he’s true to the sport. Coach Zim loves lacrosse.”
BOSSES Tierney & Petro jumped on Twitter to congratulate Coach Zimmerman.
Great night for lacrosse. Coach Don Zimmerman into HOF. Always thankful for him giving me the opportunity at JHU in 1984. #neverwillforget— Bill Tierney (@DUCoachTierney) September 24, 2017

What’s Up, PhilaJersey?
In a move sure to go down in the history books as an absolute victory for couch-surfing Philadelphians with a hankering for hoagies, Wawa unexpectedly joined forces with GrubHub this week to offer delivery to parts of the city. While the boundaries are unclear, we can confirm that the Wawa in Fairmount (2040 Hamilton St.) will bring food into parts of South Philly, West Philly, North Philly and some areas in between based on our address tests. The store at Academy Road and Grant Avenue services the Northeast, and locations in Ardmore and Bethlehem are now accepting delivery orders as well.
Madonna released a live album last Friday. News to me. News to everyone, apparently. The “Rebel Heart” Tour album sold just 3,848 CDs and downloads according to Buzz Angle and hitsdailydouble.com. It had no streaming that was reported. Stranger, though, was that the album wasn’t released on Interscope, which put out the original “Rebel Heart” album. But maybe not so strange since “Rebel Heart” sold only 238,000 copies in the US. Madonna once sold millions of albums. (So did everyone.)
