2018 Men’s Lacrosse Year in Review: #7 Denver Pioneers.

Season Summary It was the same old song and dance for Bill Tierney and the Pioneers in 2018. They took care of business and ended up back in the NCAA quarterfinals, but couldn’t get the job done against Albany.

They began the season with an easy win over Air Force before heading off to Durham to take on Duke. The Pios led by four goals at the end of the third quarter and looked like they would have their second victory of the year. But the Blue Devils managed to score seven goals in the final 15 minutes to take a three-goal win. After wins over Cleveland State, Furman, and North Carolina, Denver fell behind in the first quarter to Notre Dame in a 6-1 deficit. They managed to come back in the second half and cut the Fighting Irish lead to one, but Bryan Costabile scored another insurance goal to give Notre Dame a big win at home.

Speaking of Denver .......

MSNBC with a 7-minute long segment on helmets in women’s lacrosse and the origins of Hummingbird.

September 9, 2018: When the team at Hummingbird Sports saw a need for a women’s lacrosse helmet, they had no idea they were trailblazers. As the first to market specialized headgear for women, they suddenly found themselves in the crosshairs of a heated debate about the future of the sport.

Dorrien Van Dyke joins James Madison’s coaching staff.

One of the top Stony Brook women’s lacrosse players ever is ascending the coaching ranks of collegiate lacrosse. Northport’s Dorrien Van Dyke was named an assistant coach at James Madison on Aug. 28 after one year as an assistant at Monmouth. James Madison won the Division I national championship at Stony Brook’s LaValle Stadium in May, making this quite a step up for Van Dyke. “I’m really excited to be joining an amazing and established program in JMU,” Van Dyke said in a statement. “I’m looking forward to being part of a winning culture and working for [head coach] Shelley [Klaes-Bawcombe].”

These new Hop helmets look very very nice.

High Point love the kids!!

Bonnies getting that work in!!

I’m pretty sure that some of the Manhattan Jaspers met Kanye a couple nights ago.

What’s Up, PhilaJersey?

Coop’ll be in the city this week: Bradley Cooper Bringing “A Star Is Born” to Philly on Wednesday.

Bradley Cooper has been doing a ton of press and special events for his upcoming directorial debut, a remake of A Star Is Born. And we just learned that Cooper, the pride of Jenkintown, is going to bring A Star Is Born to Philly on Wednesday for a special advance screening of the film, which doesn’t officially hit theaters until October. We’ve been sworn to secrecy as to the location of the screening. They’ll probably sue us if we tell you. But that doesn’t mean you can’t get in. This screening of A Star Is Born is private. But you can win tickets through local radio station Q102. Keep checking their contest site here for details.

Cooper is definitely going to be in attendance, and we heard that there might be a Q&A with the star. Nobody is saying whether Cooper’s co-star, Lady Gaga, will be joining him, as she has at so many of these publicity events for the movie. Though when I mentioned the prospect of a Gaga visit to one of my colleagues, she replied, “Yeah, right. She’s probably like, ‘Philadelphia where?”

And the Oscar goes to: ‘Killer Robots’ film warns of perils of automation.

Automation is killing us, warns filmmaker Maxim Pozdorovkin in his new documentary “The Truth About Killer Robots,” which premieres Saturday at the Toronto International Film Festival. The film is also the first ever to be narrated by a robot -- a possible sign of what’s to come in the motion picture industry. “When I started making the movie, the idea of robots killing people was very trendy, people were talking about the theoretical possibilities,” Pozdorovkin told AFP.

Most cautionary tales about automation have considered “what robots will be able to do in the future,” he said. “But I’m more interested in how technology presently works on us. How is automation transforming us? This is a deeper issue, fundamental to who we are as a species.”
