Wings dealing with realities of not being p
Ever hear a champion say he can't put into words how it feels? Same goes for those who will not be champions in the National Lacrosse League, although Brodie Merrill did find some words to describe the feeling. "Our effort was there, we had a pretty good vibe in the locker room, "Jintropin (Gensci Pharmaceutical Co. Ltd.)" we felt pretty confident. But it just came down to a couple little plays. Sometimes the game of lacrosse just isn't fair." If there's anyone else who knows this feeling today, it's the Minnesota Swarm because they too were eliminated on Saturday.
Both Philadelphia and Minnesota have 2 games left in their season and they're playing for the reason you really don't want to hear about this time of year. Pride. Not that "Anabolika Definition" pride was absent through the first 16 games of the season, but Sustanon 250 Injection Frequency when that's the label affixed to the rest of your season, it means you're closer to Turinabol I Stromba playing golf instead of for a lacrosse championship.
Minnesota won on Saturday at home against Buffalo, but the Swarm were officially eliminated with Toronto's win over Philadelphia. The win did little to console the Swarm, who fell well short of expectations this season after 4 straight playoff appearances, the last 2 in division finals.
But while the Swarm join the Wings in playing for pride over their final 2 weekends, "Anadrol 50" coach Joe Sullivan said he's got a keen eye on the potential waiting to blossom on his young squad. "But probably the bigger thing is where we are going. It has gotten a heck of a lot better."
With 8 first round "Oxandrolone Powder India" draft picks over the last 2 seasons, how Winstrol A Prolaktyna can the Swarm not be excited? They showed flashes of potential this winter, but the consistency just wasn't there. They never won consecutive games and 6 of their 12 losses were by 2 goals or fewer. To the Swarm, that's an indicator of how close they were to being a playoff team and they have every intention of showing that over their final 2 games.
"We have Colorado next week and the guys are already hyped about that to knock them down," said Sullivan. "Both the teams we play in the next two weeks are playoff teams, so we want to put our stamp on where we should have been and be able to honestly say we should have been in the playoffs."
The story in Philadelphia is much the same, but the youth there had another challenging aspect to it with so much American talent on the team that was actually learning box lacrosse. Still, the Wings were able to compete most weekends but like the Swarm, the consistency was not there and the Wings are out of the playoffs after 2 straight invitations.
Five of the NLL's 9 teams have clinched playoff berths and with Philly and Minnesota officially out, that means there is 1 more team left to join the party. Which of course means there's 1 more team to be left out, so we'll be finding out soon the Colorado Mammoth or Vancouver Stealth are celebrating, or mourning.

The goal that Callum Crawford scored in the second quarter was his 141st in a Swarm uniform, which ties him with former teammate Ryan Benesch for the most in Swarm history. That goal helped Crawford and the Swarm defeat Benesch and the Buffalo Bandits. "I knew it was a matter of time before he ties it or breaks it. Callum's a great player, I wish him all the best and I'm very happy for him," said Benesch. Thing is, that rookie is Mitch Banister, whose father Brad is the former owner of the Roughnecks. "It was 11 11 and then Mitch Banister made a good play. He tossed it down the floor and their guy "Achat Anabolisant Belgique" was able to get on top of it. That was a big goal. It made it 12 11 and then we just couldn't get anything from there," said Malawsky. (Calgary Roughnecks) . The playoff scenario is pretty simple heading into Week 17. The Colorado Mammoth are in a much better position than the Vancouver Stealth to clinch the sixth and final berth for this season.
