TRUTH & Rumors
  • US Squash announced (here) that the Naval Academy won theIntercollegiate Doubles Title this past week… What?
    • Since neither College Squashnor the NCAA nor any college conference sanctioned the event, US Squash may be stretching the truth a little (read: a lot) by calling their event an intercollegiate championship.
    • Actually, we’re pretty sure any coach who was court side watching his players compete, while wearing their uniform was breaking college squash’s rules.
  • But College Squash‘s loosely run organization invites this kind of confusion.
    • Remember when George Washington University‘s newspaper reported that the squash team won anational championship after the team finished the season ranked 17th? Read the story here.
  • Thinking of squash camps yet for next summer? Squash and Beyond didn’t become the biggest program in America by accident. Here’s their site: SquashandBeyond.com.
  • We’ve noticed that American kids love the flash and sizzle of Egypt’s Ramy Ashour. But young Egyptians prefer the legendary Amr Shabana. Young Americans should ask why.
  • Pakistan cancelled the junior national tournament, which was to be held later this month, because the long held suspicion of players lying about their age has become too obvious to ignore. It’s tough when the U-11 national champion has a full beard.
  • PST is back in Cleveland, Ohio this week. The tour’s top man calls it his favorite stop on the circuit.
  • Rumor has it that International Man of Leisure Scott Dennehas left sleepy Sante Fe, New Mexico to reprise his role chasing cougars in Phoenix, Arizona. Look out ladies!
