I am loving this Providence video.

Dueling pro lacrosse leagues will vie for fans’ attention.
Paul Rabil is familiar with the atmosphere that he wants for his new professional lacrosse league because he played in the middle of it.
“The gold standard in lacrosse for the last couple of decades has been the Final Four,” said the former Boston Cannons star, who won two national collegiate titles with Johns Hopkins. “What you have is eight teams across three divisions descending upon a major-market city to play at a premium state-of-the-art venue. That’s an existing model that’s proven to be successful.”
That’s the model that Rabil has in mind for the Premier Lacrosse League, six touring teams that will perform amid a festival format in a different city every weekend, with a championship ultimately on the line.
Another great video by Florida Tech men’s lacrosse.
Vermont is ready for its home opener.
The Vermont men’s lacrosse team is hosting Holy Cross Saturday, Feb. 16 at 12 p.m. The Cats are so far 1-1 on the season. UVM took down Utah for the first game of the season followed by a loss to Navy last week. The Catamounts will host Holy Cross for a non-conference game this weekend at Virtue Field. Head coach Chris Feifs shared what he expects from his team this weekend.
Most would consider February a time for winter sports, but the members of the Harvard men’s lacrosse team are banging on the door and could not be more excited to get their season going.
It has been 293 days since the Crimson last played together and 328 days since it picked up its last win against Dartmouth on March 24, 2018. Last season, the team got off to a hot start — winning seven of its first eight games. Its only loss came in a tight 10-9 contest against Holy Cross that went into double overtime.
However, Harvard fell off in the second half of the season, losing the final five games to finish 7-6 (2-4 in Ivy League play) on the year and missing the NCAA tournament.
The Brown Bears are ready to rock.
