Candid Cannons: Getting to Know Jordan Burke

The Basics

Current Residence – Boston, MA

Major in college – Business Economics

Job outside of playing lacrosse? Investment Software Analyst

Nickname- Cakes


Lax History

Who was an early lacrosse hero or role model for you and why?

Greg Cattrano - I loved how electric he was in and out of the cage

(Editor's Note: That's Cattrano on the left; you have to love the bucket.)

Your favorite lacrosse memory?

Playing the final game of my college career against my brother at Homewood was something I'll never forget, but we lost.  So I'll say beating Princeton to win the Ivy League Championship my Junior year.  Beating Cornell on Senior Day at Brown was pretty special too.

Pre-game superstitions?

I pretty much like to keep to myself before games.  Throw the ball against the wall, listen to music, and try and mentally prepare for the game.  I used to grow a beard every week and then shave right after the game, but somehow I think I've gotten rid of that.

(Jordan during his beard growing days?)

Love that dirty water...(or not so much)

Favorite spot in Boston?

North End.  I love a place where you can go and gain a good 10 pounds in one night.

Any favorite Boston sports moment?

 No I'm a DC sports fan through and through.  Cannons winning the Steinfeld Cup will be good though.

Favorite sports team (besides the Cannons)?

Washington Capitals

Random Personal Info

Most played song on iPod and most embarrassing song on your iPod?

Most played – Runnin' Down a Dream by Tom Petty is pretty much on every playlist I have.

Most embarrassing – Baby by Justin Bieber.  Although I'm not sure if that's embarrassing.  Everyone has Bieber Fever these days.

(Maybe its the hair?)

Favorite TV show?

 Tough one.  Really loving Modern Family right now.  I could watch Seinfeld forever though.

One Thing you can’t live without?

 A nice comfy recliner in front of my TV.

If you could be someone else for a day, who would it be and why?

 DJ Pauly D for the hilarity factor.  I couldn't handle more than a day though.

(Not sure Burke can pull off the blow out....)

If you weren’t playing professional lacrosse, what would you be doing?

 Just my day job, which wouldn't be as fun.

If you could invite any three people (alive/dead/fictional) to dinner, who would they be?

 Larry David, Adam Sandler and Steve Carrell.  It would be an entertaining dinner for sure. 

Favorite Ice Cream Flavor

 Ben and Jerry's Chubby Hubby.

Final Thought

For the Cannons’ fans about the upcoming season:

Pack the house this summer and we'll make it worth your while!
