    Anyone gone or going to any of the matches? I saw the "Legends" event last night and some of the qualifiers. I would love to go Monday night, but I didn't think to order ahead and it is already sold out.

    it never dawned on me that it's a spectator sport.

    The setup in Grand Central is pretty incredible. It is actually a great spectator sport since the seating is limited and you are very close to the action and have a great sense of the speed and athleticism. But unless you are a real fan/player, I can't see the fun of watching it on TV or in an arena (not that it could fill an arena)

    I'd heard about that but never actually seen a match in person. Played a lot of racquetball back in the day, which is similar but not the same.

    And apparently some peeps take their squash seriously.

    The dude from Trinity went nuts a few years back after a win.

    Although I think Yale just ended Trinity's absurdly long win streak recently.
