Countdown to Football Frustration

Next Frustrating Hoops Victory

Next Lacrosse Annihilation

Lacrosse Friday

A cross check to the back... no problem.
It is Friday which means, as per usual, there is not much going on in the blogosphere or at Syracuse too noteworthy. However, with the demise of the basketball team this time of year shifts focus to the pride of the program, lacrosse. There has been much ado about lacrosse on the pages of many Syracuse blogs lately, especially since the team has the #1 next to its name again. That means more focus and attention from the fans. At least it should. Attendance is down, especially from students lately, and the team has noticed. Even Brady has even gone so far as to ask students to come out in this lacrosse article. The Daily Orange Sports Blog has asked a question that involves me to a certain extent because they ask “where is the band?” I replied to the post with my knowledge of the past lacrosse band, The Tainted Orange Review, started by a familiar name, none other than this pages founder, and current Hoya Suxa editor Matt Glaude. Matt could probably even comment more, but the fact of the matter is, lacrosse is not as popular at Syracuse as it should be. So here it is, the official Orange::44 plea for you, the fan, if you are in Syracuse to go out and see the game this Saturday at 3:30 versus Princeton. Go cheer on the #1 team in the nation, your Syracuse Orange. I did not understand one bit of lacrosse when I stepped on the campus of Syracuse, and now I have come to appreciate it more than most sports. It involves expert stick handling, crisp passing, ridiculous shots at 110mph, oh yeah and whacking the snot out of your opponents. If you like hockey, wrestling, or even football, you should love lacrosse.

    Maybe we should say there's public masturbation involved? Seems to be all the rage with the kids these days...

    I honestly remember very little about the lacrosse band. I can't even remember the name (something Orange something?)

    That all happened senior year (2002). Turner, Claire, and I ran it (right into the ground). I remember Mike getting pissed off because Turner popped for three all-orange coveralls that we wanted everyone to wear. That did not work out well.

    That's about it. Did it even continue a year after?

    Yes, Tom Bankert took it over and it lasted one more year. Interest faded and it was ended.
