FACING UP TO THE ONE-EYED MONSTER
I’ve mentioned Jean de Lierre before. He’s the Canadian obsessed with
John Nimick gave Jean the go-ahead to make the official videos of the Tournament of Champions, and I can tell you that they are good. As one of Jean’s "collaborators" I was in Toronto early in March for post production as a commentator on the tapes. I had a head-clogging cold so you can be sure the video is more attractive than the audio. The great thing is you get the whole match, every game, every rally, unlike the official PSA productions, where half the game has disappeared in the commercial break. Jean has produced one quarter -final, two semi-finals and the final between Power and Heath. You can see for yourself by buying these videos from Squashtalk.
AND THE WINNER IS….
The competition to find a nickname for Peter Marshall brought out some interesting entries but one of the earliest emerged the winner. It’s precise, funny and has an ominous sub-text. Step forward Ken Anklovich, for creating the winning entry: "Marshall Tito".
