Throwing it back - On a Monday. Why not?

"The year was 1985, and the Philadelphia Spectrum was playing host to the IBLA Exhibition Series between the US and Canada. This series pitted the best US box players against the best that Canada had to offer and the guys on both rosters served as a who's who of lacrosse in the mid 80's. This event was also called the North American Cup, and was a very cool concept. It's similar to the US vs Iroquois annual game (The BOWHUNTER CUP) that goes on now.

Was this game absolutely laden with star power? You bet it was! #12 for Canada is JOHN GRANT... SENIOR!. BRUCE OGILVIE, JIM WASSON, KEVIN ALEXANDER, and SEAN QUINLAN are a couple other guys you might know. The US was also pretty stacked up with talent. BILL BEROZA, JEFF GOLDBERG, BOB GRIEBE, JIM and MARK D'ARCANGELO, DAVE HUNTLEY, JOHN TUCKER, and current US Lacrosse CEO STEVE STENERSEN (USA face off man) led the way for Team USA, amongst others.

The intros, national anthems, and starting line ups run through the 10:00 minute mark, and then the action really picks up!" [youtube: laxskool]
