    I've really wanted to play in some sanctioned tournaments just to see how I'd do but I never got around to it. Now I haven't even played a game in a couple years. I'm thinking I should start it back up and give it a go. That's assuming I can take time away from Broncomania to hone my chess skills again.
    No it wasn't official.

    I had to play like 4-6 hours a day for a couple years to get that good. I haven't played since 96. All those old chess servers are down I think.


    I don't know anything anymore. I forgot all my openings except a couple.

        Chess is complicated, if you don't play in a while, you'll lose your playing ability.

            Gotcha. Yeah I played for a long time on Yahoo Games because there's always a ton of people there and because nobody I knew personally could beat me. I got up to about a 2300 rating there but that doesn't really mean too much since it's difficult to judge the quality of your opponents.

            I love Chess but I can't figure out how a purely mental game could seriously stress me out, pump my adrenaline, and make me sweat buckets. Man, I need to start playing again.

                Yeah, there is an arguement to be said about Chess being a sport. The adrenaline, stress and sweat can really make you lose focus and make you hastie. Also, aggressive play can intimidate your opponent so it's kinda good and bad.

                  Don't worry about it. I was hurtin' trying to come up with all those things.


                  It was a blast! It's a really gentle ride. You slowly ascend and descend. The roughest part is a little jolt at the landing which isn't as bad as jumping off a chair if you have a good pilot (which we had.) A friend of mine's dad owned his own hot air balloon and gave us rides in 5th grade!

                      8 and 9 were part of a school bet or some other celebratory reason. I'm willing to bet #10 isn't true.

                            7) Reviewed a movie with Greg Moody.

                            8) Sat with the Marshall Tucker band on an airplane.
