Syracuse is your Men's Lacrosse champion. That's great and all, but that doesn't pay for the team travel, maintaining the equipment and John Desko's Faberge Egg fetish, now does it? So how can we cover hard costs such as that?


Merchandising, Merchandising, Merchandising!

SU Athletics is on the case, ready to go with the official T-shirt and much more. I think. Click on the "National Champions" t-shirt link and it takes you to a page where you can buy from 35 different shirts...none of which are actually the "National Champions" t-shirt. So...um...okay...

But why are we bullshittin'? You're not here for a Hanes Beefy-T, you're here for the good stuff. The commemorative DVD. And all your favorite moments from the 2008 season are here!
Collector's edition DVD commemorating the 2008 Men's Lacrosse National Championship season. This exciting documentary chronicles the team's amazing turnaround and run to the 2008 title -- the program's 10th in 25 years! The DVD includes game highlights from the 2008 season, exclusive behind-the-scenes content from the locker room and sidelines, and exclusive retrospective interviews with the student-athletes and coaches. Bonus features include the 25th anniversary of SU's 1983 Men's Lacrosse National Championship and highlights from this year's historic Orange women's lacrosse season, in which SU set NCAA records for points (541) and goals (380) in a season. Order now!
Congrats to the women's team for their footnote status on the DVD. You've come a long way, baby.

One would have to assume that the image currently being used as the DVD
cover is a placeholder and not the actual DVD cover that you will see in 4-6 weeks.
















Then again, even if that's what they end up with it's still a marked improvement over the original design:















No matter the cover, it's a collector's item any Syracuse lacrosse fan will want to own. But what if lacrosse isn't your bag? What if you're more of a roundball aficionado? Is there a way for you to appreciate the season gone past in commemorative DVD form? Why yes, glad you asked...
