Weekend Watch: No. 7 Duke vs. No. 1 Notre Dame & More plus Q & A with Paul Rabil: New York Lizard Training Camp
Simply by coincidence, the underlying theme of this edition of the Weekend Watch seems to be payback: when played in 2014,
four of this weekend's featured matchups resulted in extremely close wins (or losses, depending on your affiliation); some
of the heartbreaking postseason variety.
MLL training camps got underway for some teams last weekend, but the New York Lizards hit the field for the first time as a team on Saturday.
For the first time, Paul Rabil will put on an MLL uniform other than the Boston Cannons (in an official capacity) after being
traded in January.
