Dress appropriately: Penn State lacrosse calling for Whiteout conditions at the Linc this Saturday

The NCAA Men’s Lacrosse Final Four is coming to Philadelphia this weekend and a local university is calling for fans to white out Lincoln Financial Field. Penn State Men’s Lacrosse is making their first Final Four appearance in program history this weekend after a 21-14 win over Loyola Maryland Sunday.

Here’s an article on Penn State’s sartorial declaration from Onward State.

Penn State men’s lacrosse will make its first-ever appearance in the Final Four of the NCAA tournament on Saturday. The game may be slated for the Saturday before Memorial Day, but the team still has one simple request for Nittany Lion fans who plan on attending the game at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia: Wear white.

Coincidence? I think not: Shortly after Penn State called for a Whiteout in Philadelphia, a Colorado lacrosse state title game was decided in the middle of a May snowstorm.

The two teams with the most boys lacrosse state championships, the Cherry Creek Bruins (6) and the Kent Denver Sundevils (5) took the field in a rainy game that turned into a blizzard midway through. Neither team took the upper hand staying even through the first half and into the third quarter before the weather turned from rain to snow.

Here’s a nice little segment from NBC CT on the Yale returning to the Final Four.

Yale men’s lacrosse is heading back to the NCAA DI Final Four for a second straight year. The Bulldogs are trying to defend their 2018 national title, the program’s first in modern history. But before they got there, first, Yale had to take down Ivy League foe.

I’ll allow it.

Never any doubt: Coach Desko is not going anywhere next year.

7 ABC Denver asked should female lacrosse players have to wear helmets?

With the end of the year approaching, several high school sports leagues are gearing up for state championships this week, including men’s and women’s lacrosse. In recent years, women’s lacrosse leagues have faced the question of whether they should make helmets a requirement. The topic is contentious; some coaches and players believe helmets can help prevent concussions while others are adamantly opposed.

Redskins recovery methods aim to reduce injuries

Sunglasses shield your eyes from the infrared lights that give oxygen to your body’s cells. Ugg boots, rubber gloves and shorts are the only protection from freezing temperatures as cold as minus 200 degrees. Then comes the sensory deprivation of floating pitch black in 1,000 pounds of Epsom salt while meditation music plays. And that’s just at work. At home is a custom-made mattress designed to get just the right amount of sleep.
