Happy Halloween, everyone.

Want a good scare? Hit Netflix, Hulu, or your local video store and watch Steven Spielberg’s 1971 classic white-knuckler Duel, or maybe Magic, the 1978 thriller starring Anthony Hopkins, Ann Margaret, and Burgess Meredith. I mean, anyone can watch the Friday the 13th, Halloween, or Chuckie marathons, but these old-school thrillers will have you glued to the tube this evening and sleeping with the lights on for the rest of the week.

Perhaps those qualities are what make Syracuse University women’s lacrosse coaches Gary Gait and Regy Thorpe so successful. The duo, both iconic players during their time, have led the Orange to an overall record of 131-42 over the last eight years.

When the positions opened up back in 2007, both Gait and Thorpe had one major factor that influenced their decisions. They sat down with their daughters, both about to start high school, and asked them if they would want to play lacrosse at Syracuse. Both girls said yes, and so Gait and Thorpe accepted the positions.

After much speculation about the future of one of Major League Lacrosse's original six franchises, it has been confirmed that the Rattlers will play in Rochester in 2017. Rumors have swirled for months that the team was on the move to Texas — first Houston, then Dallas — but those arrangements have fallen through, at least for this upcoming season.

Ed Calkins, US Lacrosse Foundation Board chair, was in the midst of fundraising for the National Campaign for Lacrosse —a $15 million capital campaign which helped result in the construction of new headquarters for US Lacrosse —when he decided on a special initiative. He, like many of his other colleagues, wanted to dedicate a piece of US Lacrosse's new headquarters to a legend of the game.

Immediately, Denver coach and 2002 National Hall of Fame inductee Bill Tierney (Cortland St.) came to mind. Tierney recruited Calkins to Princeton, where they helped fuel the rise of one of lacrosse's most storied programs. It was fitting that Calkins wanted to recognize his former coach.

The Big Red had a promising start – two face-off wins, two possessions and two goals. Sophomore Clarke Petterson opened the scoring on a slam dunk after intercepting a clearing pass. The second goal came on a nice move from ‘x’ by sophomore Ryan Bray.

From there, however, things became quite unglued. The two main areas of emphasis for most teams are face-offs and goalie play. And Cornell struggled in both areas. I didn’t keep goalie stats but, had I done so for Cornell, they would not have taken long to compile.

Your version could be better, it could be worse, and it will likely end up being totally different. In reality there are no clones.

People travel for miles to buy wooden lacrosse sticks they ordered from Alf Jacques.

He knows many buyers keep the sticks on display, and Alf always offers one simple piece of advice:

“This stick was made to be used,” he’ll tell them. “Honor it. Make that stick happy and take it down sometimes and use it, then put it back on the wall.”
