It looks like recovered video from an amateur videographer, so if you can spot the Yeti, you win the prize. Tim Desko continues to do what Tim Desko does: Ruin your entire concept of what's possible on the lacrosse field. Man Hug: 412 Lax

Inside Lacrosse's Foy and Kessenich Set Your Weekend

Terry Foy and Quint Kessenich run through what you'll talk about at your winter barbeque this weekend.

Smart People are Doing Smart Things About Injuries that Smart

+
The Baltimore Sun is running a weekly column that addresses medical, health, and safety issues concomitant with lacrosse. The pieces are written by Dr. Richard Hinton, a doctor of medicine, which is preferable to Dr. Funkenstein, who is a doctor of rump shaking. The latter probably doesn't know much about concussions.

Former Virginia Cavalier George Huguely Sentenced to 26 Years in Prison

+

Huguely, who was found guilty of second-degree murder and grand larceny in the death of Virginia women's lacrosse player Yeardley Love, was sentenced to 26 years in prison for his crimes. The maximum sentence the jury could have imposed, based on the two verdicts, was 60 years imprisonment. 25 years are based on the second-degree murder conviction; the remaining year is for the grand larceny conviction stemming from his stealing of Love's computer.

What's the Skinny on Potential Thousandaires?

I don't know much about professional lacrosse, be it Major League Lacrosse, National Lacrosse League, or any of those alphabet soup Canadian leagues they have up in Poutineville. Luckily, SB Nation has a site dedicated to professional lacrosse. (I'm just as shocked as you.) It's called In Lax We Trust, and Marisa writes a weekly professional prospects piece that'll get you all tuned up for professional lacrosse season. (Which starts at some point, I assume. Now? Later? I'm not sure.)

Keepin' Up With the Joneses: Boston College to Division I?

Yes, this is a FanShot to another FanShot that links to different site. Whatever. I'm highly doubtful that Boston College would seriously pursue this, especially given the fact that the athletic department spiked the program just about a decade ago, but I'm down with it if the Eagles want to give high-end men's lacrosse a go again.

"I just went in and played the best I could for my team," he said. "I saw the ball really well today." One half of the Syracuse Orange goalie rotation, Matt Lerman, on his first career start in the Carrier Dome. Expect to see a lot more from Lerman in coming games. The kid can flat out play and is one of the better ball stoppers Syracuse has had in the past few years. More to come on Lerman, as we will speak with him later this week about the 2012 season and what it meant to start Sunday's 12-7 win over Albany.
