Happy birthday @garygait and @paulgait! Two Canadians that did so much for the popularity of pro indoor/box lacrosse in the US through the 90s all the way to today. We're not worthy x2. Have a good one guys. #washingtonpower
The 5-on-5 and then running up and down. I was a basketball player since I was little so I was used to that concept, and the pick and roll. I had good lacrosse skills, but not great lacrosse skills, but I guess I was good enough to execute the right looks. - Rick Sowell from an @insidelacrosse interview.

During the 2004 @nll All-Star Game in Denver, Jalbert and Glenn Clark almost came to blows in a heated un-all-star like exchange. TV commentators yelled out, “This isn’t your everyday all-star game,” and eventual ASG MVP Mark Steenhuis said post-game, “People were hitting everyone hard, with cross-checks, slashing. I thought the intensity was great the whole game. It just made it fun to play in.” The game is considered by far the league’s most popular mid-season showcase ever, thanks in large part to Jalbert.

Happy birthday to the ball player that has scored more NCBS goals than anyone else, @anthonyferrie. Have an extra 🍰 on us.
@caseypowell22 wasn't the only Powell in our American @NLL Top 30 - link in bio. Ryan Powell made it too. He also did this when he played for Portland. Hey @godofgoaltending, remember these?
Four years ago we honored @caseypowell22 as the best American to ever play in the @NLL. Today, we revisit USBOXLA's most read article ever. Hit the link in our bio for American Made: The All-Time NLL Top 30 to see who the other 29 Americans were that made this definitive list. Plus, later this year we'll be updating and expanding this all-time American rundown. Who deserves to be on it? Let us know!
