Thursday Morning’s Crabs and Beer

April 23, 2009 | Glenn Clark

If you didn’t get to Unitas Stadium last night to see Johns Hopkins and Towson play another CLASSIC college lacrosse game; you’re missing out on why the sport is the best product there is. Last night’s game was a double-overtime THRILLER, but there have been 6-7 other games this season that have been just about as good, involving local teams…..

Maryland-Virginia, Maryland-Hopkins, Mt. St. Mary’s-St. Joseph’s, Mt. St. Mary’s-VMI, Towson-Hofstra, Loyola-Syracuse, etc. etc. etc. etc.

You’re missing out.

Let’s see what everyone else has to say….
