2023 NLL Name Pronunciation Guide
Look at my name. Just look at it. If you were to see “Graeme Perrow” for the first time, how would you pronounce it? GRAM-ee puh-ROW? That’s probably the most common one I get, but unless I’m in Scotland or talking to someone who is Scottish, people almost never get it right. I’ve been used to it my whole life. So back in 2011 when I was watching a Calgary Roughnecks game and the announcer talked about KAY-leb TAWth, who had already been a star in the league for a decade, I got frustrated. I decided to write an article listing all of the difficult-to-say names in the NLL and how to say them properly.
2023 NLL Week 12
Not much in the way of surprises in this week’s games. The struggling Warriors, FireWolves, Mammoth, Riptide, Wings, and Swarm all lost, and the surging Rock, Bandits, Roughnecks, Rush, Panther City, and Thunderbirds all won. The Seals lost as well but I wouldn’t call them struggling. Similarly, the Desert Dogs are only borderline surging, but they’ve won three of their last four so they’re no longer struggling either. Sure, those three wins have all come against teams who are struggling, but you gotta start somewhere.
2023 NLL Week 11
It was another great weekend of NLL lacrosse action. If you go by the halftime scores, it looked like we’d have a bunch of blowouts but the final scores were much closer – see the second Awesome entry below. We now have a three-way tie for first in the East, with the Bandits, Knighthawks, and Rock taking the top spot. In the West, the Seals still hold first place but watch out for the surging Roughnecks. Speaking of the Roughnecks… Continue reading
2023 NLL Week 10
Another very busy weekend in the NLL, as Colorado played twice and every other team played once. We had blowouts in Toronto and Philly but all the others were either close right down to the wire, or at least were close most of the way through. The defending champion Mammoth had games against two teams that had one win between them, but only came away with a split. The Desert Dogs picked up their second win, the Warriors held their own against the Rush, and Panther City also held their own against the Seals. Just like last week against Toronto, Calgary came back from a few goals down to force overtime, though this week the extra time worked in their favour.
