First things first: Last year, I lent my pictures to my loves at GYM TAN LAX. Those pictures are of me, and if they ask me to do it again I will 1000% do it. Sometimes, though, people find these pictures and use them for their own…creative endeavors.
It’s my last week in London until July, so to celebrate, all posts this week are British-theme. Jammy Jams will be Briths, the Marry Me will be a Brit (not Daniel Craig or a royal unless they do something awesome) and Bad Birch Advice has some travel tips for London! (Take with a cube of sugar, chums). But what happened this weekend? Ch-ch-Check It Out!
This week’s Marry Me is a babe with flow for days and is clutch in OT. (I’m starting to sense a pattern in this column…)
Let’s get at some headlines from the weekend, shall we?
Chyeah. My heart is still broken over the Hoos’ loss to Hopkins, but except for John Grant Jr’s sick hat trick goal, this week’s biggest highlight was the bench-clearing brawl at the UNC-UMD game. McBride had thrown a couple of cheap shots early in the game according to Tom Peace, and the Hardshells decided they weren’t going to take it anymore in the 4th quarter, when Kevin Cooper and McBride went AT it.
I was lucky enough to be able to check out the newest gear from STX a couple of weeks ago, but was faced with a conundrum: how does a lax babe stranded over in merry olde England celebrate these new spring threads without her wand?
Even over in England, I was still able to catch some lax action, if only from the liveblogs, Twitter and UVA’s magical stat-tracker. Can you believe ESPN charges for overseas streaming? I know Quint has nothing to do this, but I somehow still blame him. Moving on, incredible game, start to finish. I am beyond excited that UVA won, and certain people can attest to the fact that I almost had a heart attack following the game from my flat’s kitchen. Impressive highlights, and my favorite from UVA was a breakout performance by hometown hero Ryan Benincasa. Casa CRUSHED the faceoffs, and that had such a huge impact on the game. Faceoffs and GBs win games! Basics! Woo!
Another thing that wins games is goals. Obviously. So, even though he didn’t win, the star of the game (who has been on quite the streak recently) was Cuse’s Tim Desko. I am loathe to put a Cuse player here from this of all games, but I’m feeling generous since the Hoos won and because Desko completely deserves it. Holy moly can that guy shoot. One hand, behind the back, between the legs, it doesn’t matter. If he shoots it, the ball is most likely headed to the back of the net.
Not to mention, he is rocking some serious lettuce. Where was that in your roster pic, Desko?!
I digress. Tim Desko, despite the fact that mighty Orange fell to the Cavaliers, you were my MVP in this “great and historic rivalry” game.
