Wrestling Poem

I'm looking for the words to a poem/saying on wrestling t-shirts that ended something like "the best thing on a basketball court is wrestling mats from wall to wall" or something like that. does anyone know all the words to it?

The sight I adore
On a basketball floor
Is wrestling mats
From door to door

Not a poem but I seen one that said "The only reason they polish the Gym floor ...to keep the mats from sliding"

That is one of a series of metaphors that were popular on t-shirts backs in the 1980s and early 1990s. Others were:

Girls play volleyball.
Boys play basketball.
Men wrestle.

-or-

I would rather wrestle and lose
Than to ever have played basketball.

I'd rather wrestle and lose than play basketball and dribble in my shorts.
