Quick intro: Hi, I’m Stephen Haynes. You may know me from such blogs as field hockey, basketball, softball and The Underblog. You may also have no idea who I am. If so, I’m one of the lacrosse writers this season (along with James “Not Jimmer” Crepea) and you may soon be seeing us on a sideline near you.
Anyway, a few hours from the Showdown of the Century (not quite,...Read more »
