The Making of the “Brain Bucket”

0 - Published December 5, 2014 by in , , , , , , ,

This new piece is a throwback for us “old-schoolers”.  Looking back, I can’t believe I endured wearing such a heavy piece of equipment on my head.  But its was the standard back then, and so common – the norm!  Mine, like 99.7% of lacrosse players back then, was the LHN 33 by the now nonexistent, Bacharach […]
