Saturday Night Lights and an Olympic Timeline

Television coverage is huge for lacrosse.  Prime time live television coverage in front of a sold out crowd...that's about as good as it gets, and that is what we can expect Saturday night on ESPNU when Syracuse travels to Homewood field to face Johns Hopkins at 8pm.  So far the Cuse-UVA game has been the class of the televised schedule, we'll see if Cuse-Hopkins can live up to the hype Saturday.

NLL Insider has a very interesting article on lacrosse and it's potential to be an olympic sport.  When you break it all down, Tom Hayes who oversees development for the Federation of International Lacrosse predicts that the year 2024 is a likely goal for lacrosse to be an Olympic sport.
