Ryan, Jake, & I taped a new Crossecast on Monday night

The college lacrosse regular season is winding down and the action’s heating up. We’ve cooked a jam packed episode of COLLEGE CROSSECAST to examine where things stand just three weeks before Selection Sunday and the 2019 NCAA Division I Men’s Lacrosse Tournament.

I’m back on the hosting beat and I’m joined by Safe, Jake, and Chris as we cover a little bit of everything on this episode. We chat Loyola-BU (15:09), UMass-Towson (24:47), the situation in the ACC before the thing Jake no longer allows us to talk about (37:04) with a little break to talk Army-Navy Game 100 (41:25), a bubble filled battle with Cornell and Notre Dame (56:30), and Safe killing the best segue this show has ever had by forcing us to talk Villanova-Georgetown (1:04:50) before the Big Ten games of Ohio State-Johns Hopkins (1:08:20) and Maryland-Rutgers (1:20:25). We wrap things up with our College Crosse Top 20 (1:27:54) and, yes, an extensive bracketology talk (1:29:45).

Harlem Lacrosse continues to grow and build its network.

For the third straight year, players from Harlem Lacrosse spent the weekend upstate, visiting players from the Shaker district in North Colonie. “It’s not unlikely to see a kid holding a lacrosse stick on 125th Street,” said Harlem Lacrosse Senior Program Director Richie Hurley. It all started in 2008. A Teach for America participant named Simon Cataldo joined the faculty of Frederick Douglass Academy I in Harlem as a Special Education math teacher with Teach for America. Cataldo was struggling to get his kids engaged. He introduced lacrosse as a way to encourage and motivate his students in the classroom.

Probably not the best idea.

A member of Marquette’s men’s lacrosse team was arrested for disorderly conduct and resisting arrest on March 3 after he reportedly engaged in sexual activity in the volleyball locker room, according to Marquette Wire’s John Steppe. The player has not been identified.

Here’s a great article on TD Ierlan.

No one expects a title defense to be easy, especially after graduating the class with most wins in program history. But the No. 4 Yale men’s lacrosse team has weathered the transition thanks in part to headline transfer TD Ierlan ’20 — the NCAA Division I record holder for both faceoff wins and faceoff percentage.

Ierlan, who arrived in New Haven this fall after two standout years at Albany, has become key to the Elis’ success as they adjust to an offense without, among others, Tewaaraton-winning attacker Ben Reeves ’18.

What’s Up, PhilaJersey?

WE DID IT: MLB announces that Philadelphia will host the 2026 All-Star game.

It’s official! The MLB All-Star Game is coming back to Philadelphia in 2026 to mark the 250th anniversary of America’s independence. The announcement was made during a ceremony Tuesday at Independence Hall with several current and former Phillies players, Major League Baseball Commissioner Rob Manfred, Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney and Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Wolf.

Reality TV comes of age with its own fan convention.

From gossipy housewives to lovelorn bachelors and lip-syncing drag queens, reality television is getting its own fan event. Youth channel MTV on Tuesday announced it would host the first reality television convention, where fans and some of the people made famous by shows like “Jersey Shore,” “The Real Housewives” and “The Bachelor” will come together to celebrate the genre. MTV, whose “The Real World” is credited with launching the modern trend for reality television in 1992, said that the RealityCon event would take place in the summer of 2020.
