This year's version of the Elite Men's Division may be in the running for the zaniest group award during the 4th of July parade down the streets of Vail. Despite the colorful nature of the mix, some quality lacrosse will explode on Ford Field over the holiday. The Jammin' Salmon lost in the finals to MAB Paints after a great run and returns as the favorite. Unfortunately the Paints will not return to defend their championship. They will certainly be missed. GMH fills the Philly-based spot.
New entries Team Warrior and Bullets Lacrosse will provide new blood. The old Under Armour (now Lax.com/Team Mercury) squad changed its name to protect the guilty. Team Dulles, FKA, Team Madlax, has calmed down, the Southeast Allstars invested more as Team Merrill Lynch and the Old "Club" went Fubar.
Dark Horses are the local teams, Harrow Team Colorado in the third seed, the consolation champions from last year, Rocky Mountain Oysters, and CSU based Rock-it Pocket.
