Purple Pipe: Rob Nigro
CAN TAKE MY SQUASH RACKET, BUT THEY CAN NEVER TAKE MY PIPE. Western
men's squash player Robert Nigro looks to notch team championship
20 this weekend.
The Purple Pipe has
strayed from the beaten path of mainstream sports this week and fallen
into the hands of Rob Nigro, the best damn squash player in Ontario. Period.
Nigro's quest for the Pipe began last weekend at the Ontario University
Athletics individual championships of men's squash at Brock University
in St. Catharines. He faced fellow teammate Andrew Jones the second
best damn squash player in Ontario and took home the gold.
This was Nigro's second straight gold medal at the OUA individuals. He
also won gold at the Canadian Interuniversity Sport individual championships
last year, and competed for Canada at the World University Games held
this past summer.
Now do you see why he's the best?
The fact of the matter is that Rob squashes the competition in squash,
and his favorite food? You guessed it, squash.
Terrible puns aside, the Pipe is happy in its new home of squash courts,
and... well... squash courts.
So Rob, enjoy the Pipe whilst ye have it, for thee that beholdeth the
Pipe, shall forever... shit, I ran out of space.
