that every five years you can
play in a new age group."
Last year Brose was
ranked No. 1 in the Midwest
in his age group.
"I love playing in tourna-
ments. This age group thing
has made it feasible. If they
didn't have it there'd be no
way a guy my age could
compete. This goes up to 85-
and-over.
"You go out and play in
tournaments at a national
level and you run into guys
you played as a kid. Of
course, there isn't the crazi-
ness there was when you
were a kid. There's not as
much emotion."
Brose has spoken to others
who have competed in the
Maccabiah Games to get a
handle on what to expect, al-
though with his experience
there shouldn't be much of a
problem with butterflies.
"It's played like a tourna-
ment, not like a team event,"
he says.
The first time Brose vis-
ited Israel he says "every
minute was occupied" on a
tour. "The second time we
took our children with us
and retraced our steps. This
time well be loose. Well
rent a car for the second half
of the trip. The closing cere-
monies are in Jerusalem and
I'll even commute from Tel
Aviv if I have to."
Squash player Linden has
been a member of the U.S.
Maccabiah team twice before
and says competition is high,
with strong contingents from
Australia, England, Canada,
Mexico, Argentina and the
U.S., and possibly Brazil and
South Africa.
"We came in second to
South Africa both times I
went before," the 35-year-old
advertising promoter says.
"The game played in Israel is
international squash. It has
a slightly different court. It's
wider, and the ball is softer
than in American squash."
Linden took a silver medal
both times he competed.
"I play squash for fun, for
the recreation and exercise,"
he says. "It's a game, unlike
running, where there's
strategy and so forth. I got
- started at the Jewish Center
and have been playing for
about 20 years. I've been city
and state champion and at
one time (1977) I was ranked
No. 2 in the country." -
Linden says he also has
held a top ranking for 35 and
over in international rules
and was New York city
champion. He lived in New
