Lodge - Robert Morris 

 

Happy Friday Lax Fiends,

Alright so let’s talk about this team for one second…Two solid come from behind wins and loss to a solid UVA team with no Cockerton, good name right? Regardless, I think the squad is exactly where they are expected to be and deserve to be. I want to hesitantly congratulate them, but let’s be real a win over the purple people eaters and the soft serve west on 30 are expected at this point in the game.

Here’s where we go from here, one game at a time, one win at a time. You better believe these games must be wins. Forget learning from your mistakes early in the season. This team doesn’t need that ish, they are an experienced group of scorers and have shown it in every game so far.
 

The focus right now is on Robert Morris. Guys, I’m going to be honest, I got nothing. I don’t even have the material or depth to try and start stirring stuff up on Bobby Mo. I mean it’s Pittsburgh, seriously, the red headed step child of Philadelphia. It ain’t even close and ain’t even worth my time. I wouldn’t go to Pittsburgh if you paid me in pure gold bricks. I feel bad for our team really. This is by far the worst road trip out of any…so what do you do with that, you promptly stomp their face into the ground from the first whistle and win this thing in a rout going away.

It should be clear that this doesn’t just happen. You don’t just say you’re going to stomp a team into the ground and then it happens…you actually have to believe that you are going to do it and then go out and actually do it. If I were with the Boys right now I would be telling them that this game is the quintessential let down game at Drexel. On the road, place sucks more than Albany, we think we’re the bee’s knee’s, and the bam Bobby Mo is up 7-1 and your fighting an up hill battle. This team is plenty good enough to beat this Drexel team that we have seen in the 1st quarter…but they are not good enough to beat the Drexel team we have seen in the second half.

NOW LET’S GO OUT THERE AND GET THIS FREAKING WIN!

Lodge, out

Lodge - Villanova 

 

Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, children of all ages….Rodger Lodge proudly presents to you a quick and hateful message toward our suburban housewife neighbor from the West.

Villanova. Villanova is a team I hate. Every single time you play Villanova in a Drexel uniform is a time to bring the pain. There’s nothing better than beating up on Villanova and walking away knowing that you outworked them in every category of the game. Drexel beating Villanova is just the right thing. It’s right for Drexel to walk on the field knowing that Villanova and their blonde house wife moms in the stands and their nose in the air dad’s, fundamentally believe they are better than you….and then for you to swiftly punch them in the mouth from the first whistle and continue to punch until you beat it into them that Drexel is here to stay. Make no mistake Villanova looks at Drexel and says, “Oh them, yes those boys are from the city…bless their heart.” Players…Villanova believes that they are better than you…and you DO NOT need to prove anything to them, you need to prove it to yourself that you will never be looked down upon. Prove to yourself that you have worked harder than them and prove to the world that Drexel is the best team in this area because of what you do on the field. Simple as that.

If you have hate in your heart, let it out

Happy Thirsty Thursday West Philly’s Finest,

As I crack my 24 ounce can of Dos Equis Amber while I sit on the white sand beaches of the central coast of Mexico, I find myself laughing at all of you in the Northeast. If you haven’t noticed I like to rub in the fact that I’m a boss and simply do what I want. Move in and out of countries, women, and responsibilities. Just picture the American version of that epic bro on the Dos Equis commercials but younger and less grey.

The great thing about today is that I am off my Jameson and ice diet/bender that I have been on since the OT loss to the VA-boys. Heart break city…I think we can all agree on that. I literally threw my butler’s head straight through the TV and went on to come in and out of consciousness for 4 full days until this morning due to the severity of the loss and my lax 4 life issues.

I can now proudly announce that I am ready to move on…so thank you for your patience.

On to Albany and our very first home game at 43rd and Powelton. This Dragon team is very, very good. I think the last two Dragons teams have also been very good, but I think the infusion of a ton of new talent across all positions could make this an all-timer. Could….being the key word. The offense is firing. Canucks just streaking down the alleys and burying goals and the feeds are right on the money. Our guys that we are going to rely on to put points on the board, put points on the board, and if that continues this team is going to be scary. Defense let up double digits, so let’s not get crazy just yet. Although the amount of goals last week is above what you would normally want, there were some flashes of brilliance down at that end of the field. Let’s just make sure we don’t fall for any witchcraft this weekend with our opponent, these dude’s throw fakes for days. I wouldn’t even be surprise if they used their pony tails as weapons. And for the record I don’t talk about Goalies during a game week. Goalies are about as crazy as my first and second wife and I don’t talk about them at all, so let’s just leave it at that.

Alright to finish my semi-coherent ramblings on this week…Albany sucks. Literally that city sucks. Awful place to be from, reside in, and most definitely go to school. Yo Albany, go talk to your sister-in-law Harrisburg and tell them how awesome it is to be state capital. Is that what you’re hanging your hat on? I hung out in Albany one time….ha yeah right, good joke huh? I’m surprised Albany just doesn’t play all of their games on the road. I sure would, because any chance to get out of that god forsaken place I would take it. And of course, my go to…who the hell wears purple and takes themselves seriously?

Get a Win boys

I’m parched,
