Major League Lacrosse All Star Game Live Blog

Marisa Ingemi, Kyle Fletcher and Jack Goods will keep you updated tonight with all the latest from the MLL All Star game in Florida, which you can watch on ESPN2.

Opening Thoughts-

Marisa: The game starts in just about a half hour now, and we will see the best field lacrosse players on the planet duke it out. I like the Young Guns in this game. They have strong goaltending, defense and offensive skills. Keep following along for updates from myself, Kyle and Jack.

Jack: Should be a good one tonight, real interested to see how the attendance looks. This game is really important not only just as an All-Star game but a test of Florida. I’ve never been the biggest guy when it comes to All-Star games in sports, but it should at least be entertaining. I’m excited to see what they do with the skills competition at half time.

Kyle: I’m really excited for this All-Star Game. It’s full of star power and I’m expecting a high scoring exciting game. As Jack said, this game could determine whether or not Florida can get an MLL team in 2014. Can’t wait for this game to start, it’s gonna be a good one!
