Another week, another new major-league sports team for Philadelphia. And another celebrity owner, sort of. Here comes the Philadelphia Barrage of Major League Lacrosse. The Barrage will play a 12-game season with six weekend home games, from May 22 to Aug. 14 at Villanova Stadium. Major League Lacrosse was founded by fitness guru Jake Steinfeld, the self-described former "fat kid with a stutter" who weight-lifted his way to fame with his Body by Jake brand. He and two partners own the league and its six teams, each of which has local management.

Jake Bergey and Matt Oglesby have been busy building for their future by making Mexican food as co-owners of Burrito Loco, a West Chester restaurant. But, truth be told, they would rather be playing lacrosse. During the winter months, they play indoors with the National Lacrosse League's Philadelphia Wings. This weekend, they will be helping to lay the groundwork for Major League Lacrosse, a professional outdoor league that will debut next summer. The MLL Summer Showcase, a seven-city, all-star exhibition tour, will make its second stop of the summer at 8 tonight at Villanova Stadium.

DEAR Philadelphia Sports Fans: I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your support of the 2003 Major League Lacrosse Championship Weekend. It was an incredible event. Villanova Stadium looked fantastic. The weather was perfect. The crowds were awesome. And if you were there or watched the New Balance Championship Game on ESPN2, you saw the best lacrosse ever played. It truly was a crowning moment in our young history. I can't say enough about how the Philadelphia sports fans have embraced the sport of lacrosse.

Denver Outlaws attack Brendan Mundorf raised his black right glove and circled his index finger before walking toward the middle of PPL Park without saying much. He was indicating it was time to wrap up a passing drill. As he slowly walked away, his teammates took some final shots before following him and moving on to another drill. The same way he leads at practice, Mundorf helped guide Denver to a 14-0 record - Major League Lacrosse's first unbeaten regular season. The Outlaws face the Charlotte Hounds at 1. p.m. in Saturday's semifinal at PPL Park and Mundorf is focused on winning his first championship.

When Dave Gross examined Major League Lacrosse's business plan in 2000, he figured "MLL" would soon join the scrap heap of dimly remembered initials from failed American sports leagues. "No chance," Gross, a Massachusetts clothing manufacturer who is now that league's commissioner, said at the time. "The world isn't ready for pro lacrosse. " While he might yet be proven correct, the MLL has endured far longer than he anticipated - far longer, in fact, than most fledgling leagues.
