Lloyd and Fusco Enter Canadian Lacrosse Hall of Fame

Two legends of lacrosse from the Durham Region will be inducted into the Canadian Lacrosse Hall of Fame on November 13, 2010 at the Firefighter’s Club in Burnaby, British Columbia. It is a great honour to say that I know both Terry Lloyd and John Fusco, and my congratulations go out to both of them on a very deserving acknowledgement. I know that their contributions to our game have been, and continue to be appreciated by so many.

The summaries below are as written in the Inductees announcement.

Terry was the main cog in the Oshawa Field Lacrosse Club as the VP of Operations but also offering his time provincially as the Cocommissioner, Treasurer and Secretary of the Ontario Junior Field League.

Inside The Game / Behind The Scenes

A great job by Mr. Messer, aka Big Mouth Productions, to put together a nice piece behind the scenes on game night at the ACC. This was taken during last nights Boston – Toronto game.

I am sure Messer and I will be doing more of these, hope you enjoy!

Lacrosse; The People, The Places, The Story

This is the first in a mini series done up by Ron Messer himself. In this series, Ron will talk with many of the names that shaped the game, historians, players, builders, and more. In his first sit down, we could not think of anyone better than the Wamper himself, Larry Power.

Part two:

Wampers Corner Episode 7

Recorded at the Powerade Center in Brampton during game three of the Peterborough – Brampton Series.  Wamp and I chat about more programs, and more.

Wampers Corner Episode 6

Episode six, recorded shorlty after the Brooklin Redmen had their 2008 season ended by the Brampton Exclesiors at Iroquois Park Arena.  Wamp and I discuss the Mann Cup, he shows a few of his collectible programs from Mann Cups of years gone by.

Then Wamp, with the end of the Brooklin season details the plans he has for an upcoming trip with Twyla.  I’ll be honest and say, that I’ve not laughed harder than I have in this episode.  And believe me, the only part if this that is rehearsed, is the fact that we are talking about Mann Cups, and that he would talk about his trip.

Wampers Corner Episode 5
