I’m liking the commute this year.
Lacrosse fans and families in the LoHud coverage area haven’t been spending a lot of time in the car. Hofstra is the longest drive of the postseason, and I’ll be heading down after lunch. We’ll do the same drill. Follow the game via Twitter, I’ll be posting every goal on @LoHudLacrosse. You can also tweet at me from the stands or from the couch, and I’ll share your thoughts with the masses.
Leave a prediction or wish your team well on the blog if you’re so inclined.
For the record, I don’t usually pick state tournament games because I don’t know a lot about the Long Island teams. I have spoken to a few people that have seen Garden City and Shoreham-Wading River play, and they seem to think Yorktown and Bronxville do have a chance. The odds are not great, but they do have a chance.
Dan DeFrancesca will be joining me, and he’ll write up the Bronxville game. I’m doing Yorktown, and it’s going to finish on deadline, so if you’re reading a story tomorrow in the paper and there is no postgame reaction, check the blog. I’ll put my final story up in full.
Enjoy the day!
