49,562 to watch the NCAA semifinals at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia in 2006

48,302 to watch the NCAA finals at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore in 2007

Amazing how such a mediocre team as Hopkins, trounced by Duke earlier this year, can beat the best team in the country today ?! "Any given day..."
Enjoy in Hopkins; the lacrosse world knows who the best team in the country was last year , and is this year. Hats off to an upset. Maybe eventually you will out forth the same effort ALL SEASON in EVERY game, like true champions do !

Dr. Greg. You have been diagnosed with sour grapes! TRUE CHAMPIONS WIN WHEN IT COUNTS!

I bet you're a New England Patriots fan too.

Looks like Dr. Pokrywka wasn't accepted at JHU medical school. Did you get all 100's on your tests?! Did you go to Duke?

Wasn't Hopkins undefeated for one of their recent championships?! Do 3 overtime losses not count for great effort this year?

Also, what about no mention of the 5th year players for Duke...forget about that doc?

I sure hope you bring more intelligence to your practice than your sports commentary.

Sour grapes, Gregory.

Nice whine, pal!!!

At the end of the season and for time inmemorial, the best teams for any given season have the rings to prove it!

Closing the deal is the mark of a winner.
