Johns Hopkins University's historic Homewood Field will host the 2018 Under Armour All-America Lacrosse games Saturday, June 30, 2018. The games were previously played at Towson University and draw some of the best lacrosse players across the nation. "It's a tribute to the event's reputation and an honor to bring the All-America games to the sport's most historic venue, Homewood Field," said Lee Corrigan, president of Corrigan Sports Enterprises, which manages the event. The 2018 Under Armour Underclass Tournament, played simultaneously with the All-America senior games, will remain at Towson University. It will expand for the second time in three years, by adding the Connecticut/New York (CONNY) area as the 12th region.

This summer, the lacrosse community had fun with the #LowAngleChallenge, where players like Kyle Harrison and Michelle Tumolo found a way to score with seemingly no angle with which to work. It went viral, but it left some wondering who started this trend. U.S. training team and Charlotte Hounds attackman Ryan Brown said the concept originated when he and Atlanta Blaze midfielder Deemer Class, who run their own RBDC Lacrosse shooting clinics, tried it out with the East Coast Dyes team while they were filming in August.

The Saskatchewan Rush will be playing on new turf this upcoming season. The team announced Thursday morning it has entered into a partnership with Co-op that includes field naming rights for the next five years and new home turf. The Rush’s home floor will be renamed Co-op Field at SaskTel Centre, as part of the deal. "It's incredible. It's the largest corporate deal in the history of the team, and I think it shows extra strong confidence in both the sport of lacrosse and this organization," Bruce Urban, owner of Saskatchewan Rush, told reporters after the announcement. "It's the new cool sport. Kids were bringing their skateboards to school however many years ago. Now kids are carrying their lacrosse sticks to school because that's the cool thing to do.”

After paying $216.7 million into the state’s general fund in the year ended June 30, more than twice the $100 million paid to help fund state operations the year before, the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board had a bottom line loss of $114.3 million, according to the agency’s latest financial results. Despite the strain from larger-than-usual payments to the state, the agency’s spokeswoman pointed out that its cash and short-term investments were only $66 million lower on June 30, despite the additional $117 million contributed to the state’s coffers. The PLCB board told legislators that they are comfortable with a $185 million contribution in the current fiscal year.
Shocking footage has emerged of mutant Hulk-like pigs which are being bred by Cambodian farmers. The company, called Duroc Cambodia, appear to have genetically modified the animals who were kept in cages and the results have appalled critics. Videos of the pigs show that they are unable to walk properly because of their freakishly large muscles.
There were years when Apple would release a new iPhone that didn’t feel like a huge advancement, but sales were off the charts anyway. This year, we’re seeing signals that maybe, just maybe, people won’t be rushing to buy the new phone. Shares in some suppliers have fallen 10 percent or more since the end of August, particularly after an analyst predicted that pre-orders for the iPhone 8 were “substantially lower” than for previous new models. Customers could be waiting for the X model instead. Or, Bloomberg’s Alex Webb notes, people could just be ordering online or through the company’s upgrade program. The latest line of products has had so-so reviews. Investors could be cashing out.
