Final battle for Allman brothers

MORE than 50 members of the Whitecross Squash Club took part in the 2008 Terry Mac Memorial Tournament.

In a highly entertaining final, brother's Tom and Dave Allman had an epic encounter.

Tom eventually got the better of his older brother after taking the fifth game 17-16, to win the final 3-2.

In the plate competition, Dave Thompson fought back from what looked like a losing position against Colin Powell to win 3-2.

All proceeds raised from the tournament go towards junior squash coaching at the Whitecross club.

Damn , Colin Powell has changed as of late. Looks like he did the Michael Jackson skin color thing.

Wasn't Tom and Dave with the band during the Arista "sessions"..but lost out to the Toler Brothers.

This reminds me of the commercial from a few years ago showing a young Jimi Hendrix choosing between the guitar and the accordian. This would have been the result had Duane & Gregg chosen squash over music.

Funny! Several years ago, the high school football team that I work with had two players with the last name Allman. I started refering to them as the Allman Brothers. Being young, they didn't get the joke. Their father (a dentist, as it turns out) hipped them to my references. Hence - new fans! I think one of these kids is playing Division II at a school in Tennessee someplace.

hhmmmm......???

so The Allman Brothers were doing it with "whitecross"............

am I the only one seeing the irony of the club's name?

hope not.......

squash is a terrific game by the way and is played all over in Australia, Canada, Ireland, Scotland, England, Europe, South Africa, Saudi Arabia, and The South Pacific.

only in the USA is it an elite type of club sport.

I'm in need of some whitecross.
