Video: Nicky Polanco, Lizards on 'Today' Show

by Corey McLaughlin | Special to Lacrosse Magazine Online

Several members of the Long Island Lizards appeared on NBC’s “Today” show Tuesday morning during a five-minute segment that promoted lacrosse and MLL. Lizards defenseman Nicky Polanco fielded a few questions from hosts Matt Lauer, Al Roker, Meredith Vieira and Ann Curry before providing them a primer on how to shoot.

The hosts then held a mini-competition on a makeshift field outside at Rockefeller Plaza to see who could score the most times in one minute. Lauer and Roker shot on veteran goalie Brian Dougherty, and Vieira and Curry shot on rookie Drew Adams. It was said that Vieira and Curry won. “You know, the losers in the old days were killed,” Roker said during one of the teases earlier in the show.
