"We've always known growing up that people take their lacrosse seriously up here," said Kevin.
Albany was the third "home" game for Chicago, which is searching for a new owner and possibly a new city to call home. The Machine played their first two home games in Cary, N.C. " a suburb of Raleigh " and Pittsburgh. Their next home game is Saturday in Virginia Beach.
"For me, it's not any different," said Mike, who works as an accountant in New York City. "I live in New York City, so Chicago was always a place to travel to [for home games]."
Kevin added that the Machine's travels have allowed him to see how much lacrosse has grown in popularity.
"There's a lot of people that like the sport," said Kevin, who makes his home in Syracuse. "We had a great turnout in Pittsburgh on Memorial Day weekend, and we had a good turnout in North Carolina."
Still, the opportunity to play together at the pro level " whether in Chicago, in Albany or somewhere else " is something the Leveille brothers cherish.
"It's a lot of fun," said Mike. "We never had the opportunity [as kids].""
