Down Memory Lane - Box Lacrosse's First Pro Championship

After the final game Jim Bishop the coach of the Detroit Olympics paid the ultimate tip-of-the-hat to his victorious opponent.

Bishop had recieved the second biggest ovation that evening, second only to Cliff Sepka, and later he admitted:


"It was as big a thrill as I've ever had in a loss.

If we had to get beat I'd rather lose to them.

Once the bitter taste is over you have to say they're worthy champions"
