PLayers chosen in the MLL supplemental draft started to roll in last night and our boy Chris was all over it as usual.
Players have started to find out who they were drafted to via email or have asked team personnel if they have been drafted today. Teams have also asked players to sign two-year contracts.— Chris Jastrzembski (@CFJastrzembski) October 26, 2018

Imagine if LeBron James left the NBA and took a bunch of the best players with him to launch a rival basketball league. That’s what Paul Rabil, America’s top lacrosse player, is doing. Rabil, the closest thing the sport has to a remotely recognizable star, has played in Major League Lacrosse for 10 years of the league’s 18-year history. Beginning next June, Rabil will play instead for the Premier Lacrosse League, which he and his brother cofounded with investments from Raine Group, Chernin Group, CAA, and Blum Capital. Rabil’s venture is a shot across the bow for Major League Lacrosse, which bodybuilder Jake Steinfeld founded in 2000 and sold to New Balance owner Jim Davis in 2004. And MLL is going on the offensive about the launch of the PLL.
Stand up, South Jersey!! Check out this video of Stockton university men’s lacrosse alumni game.
The Lauren Morton era is underway on Commonwealth Avenue.
The accomplished Boston University alum and former BU assistant was named head coach just four months ago, but she’s already begun to shape what the Terrier program will look like for years to come.
Morton joins the Patriot League program following four years at Duke, serving the last two as associate head coach. At Duke she oversaw the offense, which included All-ACC and All-Region draw specialist and attacker Olivia Jenner.
Now, Morton looks to transform a Boston University program into a league contender with the likes of recent champions Loyola and Navy. If she accomplishes that task, it means she’s returned her beloved program to the heights that were enjoyed while she was a student-athlete.
Ever see a BTB catch? Benny Pugh showed all the young bucks how its done while preparing for the Richmond alumni game tonight.
GM & coach of the Philadelphia Wings Paul Day Tweeted out a good message for everyone yesterday.
What’s Up, PhilaJersey?
Gritty celebrated a very special day on Wednesday: His one-month birthday. Just 30 days ago, on Sept. 24, 2018, our beloved orange mess of a creature came into this world.
Or did he? I mean, when the Flyers first presented Gritty in September (and we instinctively, collectively cringed — who could blame us?), the Flyers said their mascot claimed “he’s been around for a longer than we know it” (or perhaps that we’d like to know), existing in some kind of “secret hideout” that was disturbed by construction at the Wells Fargo Center.
In Haidilao International Holding Ltd.’s hotpot restaurants, robots are replacing chefs and waiters. Asia’s biggest listed restaurant chain by market value is partnering with Japan’s Panasonic Corp. to open what the two companies say is the world’s first eatery with a fully automated kitchen Oct. 28 in Beijing. At the new Haidilao restaurant, robots will take orders, prepare and deliver raw meat and fresh vegetables to customers to plop into soups prepared at their tables.
The automation will lower labor costs and boost efficiency, underpinning Haidilao’s plan to expand to as many as 5,000 restaurants worldwide, the companies said. Panasonic also supplies batteries to power Tesla Inc.’s electric cars. “It could be difficult to expand to that size in terms of personnel, so Haidilao is shifting earlier to an operation that doesn’t rely so much on manual labor,” said Jun Yamashita, managing director of Ying Hai Holding Pte., the Singapore-based joint venture Haidilao and Panasonic have set up. “That’s where Panasonic’s technology comes in.”
