Squash Streak


The longest winning streak in the history of intercollegiate varsity sports is over. Trinity College, 13-time defending national champions, lost to Yale 5-4 on Wednesday. Yale’s win snapped a 252-match winning streak that dated back 14 years to the 1997-98 season. Trinity’s squash dynasty might be coming to an end given the parity today, but the Bantams can still wear their historic record and those “Fear the Chicken” t-shirts proudly. Congratulations to the players and coaches on a truly miraculous run.

I've never played squash, and I've only ever seen it played on a movie called "The Door in the Floor" based on a John Irving novel (great novel).

Is it an East Coast thing? My wife's Dad plays raquetball. Wonder if he'd be up for a game of squash...

Although squash is what wound up snapping my achilles tendon, it is still by far the best 1) hangover cure and 2) way to advance your career. Dump games to the boss. Always.

Brian, I had a parial calf tear in a squash tourny 2 summers ago...posted about it. It is a great sport and I know of nothing to get you sweating and panting like squash! My old man played until his early 70's!

Nothing kills the quads like like playing squash for the first time in months.
