Yes, we are nearing the end of another year and 2011 proved to be another great one for lacrosse. Being as politically uncorrect as I can, I wanted to wish all of you and your families a very Merry Christmas, and a Happy New Year.
This past few months have afforded me the opportunity to get some much needed rest (ya right) and I am certainly looking forward to the 2012 lacrosse season. I again will have a heavy workload coming up. The 2012 National Lacrosse League season is upon us, and in the Summer months Major Series Lacrosse, Junior lacrosse, and the Ontario Lacrosse Festival will no doubt keep this boy busy.
There will be a pretty exciting announcement in the coming weeks / months about LITG being involved with another high profile lacrosse event in 2012. Stay tuned.
In the next two months, LITG will be celebrating 5 years in the online world. In that time I have had a great number of people I’ve met, and in some cases worked with. I cannot reiterate enough, the quality of people in the game right from the grass roots, to the Pros, and their willingness to accomodate any story or article I have been working on.
I’ve also seen a number of other online lacrosse resources, web sites, and others pop up and begin to prosper, some of them taking a few LITG concepts and running with them. I guess imitation really is the sincerest form of flattery. Great for them, and great for lacrosse. I’ll get down off my soap box now :).
In 2012, I’d like to open up LITG to get more folks involved in writing lacrosse stories, articles, etc. One lesson I’ve learned in the past 5 years is you can go crazy trying to do it all yourself. So if you have the ability to put together a good sports story, or game recap, please drop me a line at gmark at lacrosseinsidethegame dot com, maybe send me something you’ve done, or even a fictitious article. We’ll chat from there.
To all of you lax crazed fans out there; I wish you all prosperity in 2012. And as always, stay safe, be good, and keep your stick in the air!
See ya’ at the rink.
