The two teams aren’t officially associated (different owners), but it’s largely accepted they share history (more on this below). The announcement was made during a season ticket holders’ town…

NLL: Rock’s move to Hamilton presents challenges

May 12, 2021

What a week in the NLL. First the news of the Saskatchewan Rush being sold came (but staying in Saskatoon, for now at least), and then the Toronto Rock announced they’re moving to Hamilton. The Sask news caught us by surprise, but the Rock news – well, with apologies to our readers, we’ve known since March. Out of respect for the people who weren’t supposed to leak the news, we…

And, if it seems like history is repeating itself, that is because it is. It is no longer Miller Time in Philadelphia.

REVIEW: Powless’ Medicine Game should be under every lacrosse fan’s Christmas tree

My first job was at Chapters, which was the family business as I grew up. I am a book snob. I have no problem admitting that. While the phrase “don’t judge a book by its cover” has generally come to mean “don’t judge a person by their looks,” I absolutely judge actual books by their covers. I mean, you can take one look at a romance novel and know everything…
