The year was 1985, and the Philadelphia Spectrum was playing host to the IBLA Exhibition Series between the US and Canada.

This event was also called the North American Cup, and was a very cool concept.

We talk about lax here at LAS, but we’re not afraid to go outside the lines a bit and talk about other sports and personalities as long as we think they are interesting. Here we’re checking in with a recent rugby convert who hails from an athletic family. In fact, his twin played lax at Hobart. Close enough for me!
