|Jan-31-09|| ||1. h4: <one of the downsides to quitting smoking is that you can smell your own farts. :( > What a random thing to say.|
|Jan-31-09|| ||Jim Bartle: Yes, but it reminds me of something from "Barbarians at the Gate," the story of the takeover of RJR Nabisco.|
The company president was keen on producing a smokeless cigarette, which would make the company super-profitable. He did, and everybody kept saying it has an odd sort of taste. Finally somebody figured it out: "It actually tastes like s*&/."
|Jan-31-09|| ||Dim Weasel: Hi all! In the old Bond-movie "From Russia With Love" there is a chess game being played that is exceptionally realistic in the sense that it does not end in a brilliant one-move checkmate, as most movie games do. Does somebody know, if a real-world game was adapted to this movie?|
|Jan-31-09|| ||Jim Bartle: It's a Spassky game, maybe against Tal?
So page update for January 31: 26 pages.
|Jan-31-09|| ||Jim Bartle: Sorry, Spassky vs. Bronstein 1960.|
|Jan-31-09|| ||Dim Weasel: Thanks, Jim.
<So page update for January 31: 26 pages.> Sorry, didn't get this...
|Jan-31-09|| ||Jim Bartle: That's So. Wesley So.
Likes his milk shake shaken, not stirred.
|Jan-31-09|| ||Dim Weasel: Ok, now I get it. Just visited Corus C tournament page. Great going for youngsters.|
|Jan-31-09|| ||Phony Benoni: <Dim Weasel> See this kibitz for more inforamtion: Spassky vs Bronstein, 1960|
|Jan-31-09|| ||Dredge Rivers: <Jim Bartle> Of course he likes his milk shake shaken, not stirred. If it was stirred it would be a milk stir!|
|Jan-31-09|| ||Jim Bartle: Of course! (Slaps forehead in disbelief)|
|Feb-01-09|| ||Travis Bickle: I think The Steelers are going to Rock N Roll on the cardinals!|
|Feb-01-09|| ||blacksburg: anyone else watching this tennis match?|
|Feb-01-09|| ||Jim Bartle: Absolutely. Federer is bound to get a first serve in any game now.|
|Feb-01-09|| ||The Rocket: I have a question for you benoni experts.. I wonder if black has to play e6 in the old benoni eventually in the game= because each time I do that the computer exchanges! and starts attacking my d6 pawn instead of letting me exchange in the center.|
|Feb-01-09|| ||Jim Bartle: Fifth set starting! And Federer's starting to get his first serve in...|
|Feb-01-09|| ||The Rocket: Nadal WINS Australian Open! well deserved he was the better player overall in the match no question about it.|
|Feb-01-09|| ||Jim Bartle: Federer blew a big lead in the first set, and couldn't win one of SIX break points at the end of the third. Can't do that against Nadal.|
Really amazing play by both. But what was strange was at the end it wasn't Nadal who got tired, after five hour match vs. Verdasco on Friday, but Federer, who had won his last two matches in about fifteen minutes.
|Feb-01-09|| ||Benzol: One can only admire the heart displayed by Nadal in this match.
A great contest to have witnessed. Bravo.|
|Feb-01-09|| ||Ladolcevita: Yeah!!!~~~
Nadal,you totally deserve this championship,in every sense.And i knew you would be a great player when i first met you in the Teens Newspaper and heard your name from my English Teacher's praise!
Hmmm...you showed many immortal spirits in your actions which i can observe all the time.
|Feb-01-09|| ||Jim Bartle: Agree. Same for the Verdasco match.|
|Feb-01-09|| ||Ladolcevita: LOL
Federrer stole my words"this man deserves it"~~:)HMMMM...anyway,they are so admirable....
|Feb-01-09|| ||The Rocket: "Really amazing play by both. But what was strange was at the end it wasn't Nadal who got tired, after five hour match vs. Verdasco on Friday, but Federer, who had won his last two matches in about fifteen minutes."|
I dont think fatigue was the factor deciding the final set.. nadal was the stronger player mentally keeping the koncentration level up wheras federer began having more and more unforced errors toward the end but I dont think he was tired.
