When he was growing up in Baltimore, through his years at Forest Park High, Bob Scott had a distinct dislike for Johns Hopkins.He remembers how it started. One rainy day in the spring of 1945, when he was a ninth-grader, he witnessed Howdy Myers' St. Paul's lacrosse team crush Forest Park, 30-0. In those days, St. Paul's was invincible, winner of 90 straight in one stretch."I had no love for Howdy after what his team did to my Forest Park heroes," Scott said. "As fate would have it, Howdy went to Johns Hopkins to coach while I was still in high school, and brought St. Paul's players with him."

The inspiration for the action-filled stamp, designed by Tom Yakobina and illustrated by Yvan Meunier, is based on a photograph not of a Canadian lacrosse game but one between the Johns Hopkins University and the University of Maryland.

The 2008 season wasn't about succeeding for the Massachusetts men's lacrosse team. It was about getting through a trying time. Before the Minutemen's season began, eight players were suspended for their roles in a beating of three individuals with lacrosse sticks and bottles. The suspensions left the team with just 27 players. "We scaled everything back practice-wise and time-wise," UMass coach Greg Cannella said. "Tried not to do too much and keep the guys as fresh as possible. ... I think they all felt we were a little undermanned."
