|Feb-25-08|| ||schnarre: Any future events on the horizon M'Lady?|
|Mar-10-08|| ||James Demery: Susan : Now that Bobby Fischer has passed can you talk about the results you had against him playing Random Chess? In deference to Fischer you wouldn`t discuss it while he was alive. Did he get upset when he lost?|
|Mar-31-08|| ||James Demery: 3 weeks between posts. The USCF must be taking up a lot of her time.|
|Mar-31-08|| ||RookFile: If Susan is going to answer your question, it won't be on this site first.|
|Apr-01-08|| ||TheGladiatres: Well I see she is moving back to Hungary according to her blog, I have to say I'm puzzled by the date she choses to to do so.|
|Apr-01-08|| ||WannaBe: Moving from Texas => Hungary, vast improvement in life style! :-))|
|Apr-01-08|| ||gus inn: good luck Susan - but please : Do NEVER EVER announce stuuf like this on the first of April , promise ?|
|Apr-01-08|| ||Susan Polgar: :) :shock: :D|
|Apr-01-08|| ||samikd: are you really moving back ? please clarify once and for all !
also, is it true the Goichberg stripped you of your post ?|
the chess loving people of USA are with you
|Apr-01-08|| ||Susan Polgar: Some parts of the article are true. Some are not. You decide :)|
|Apr-02-08|| ||AmyBeercondo: good luck in Hungary, Susan. We all believe you've made a big contribution to U.S. chess over the years, and your blogspot is terrific.|
Say hello to Mr. Benko, should you pal around with him...
|Apr-02-08|| ||Susan Polgar: In the past 24 hours, I received more than 1,000 emails, messages, and phone calls from friends and supporters about this (http://chessville.com/misc/PolgarQu...) article on chessville. From the bottom of my heart, thank you for showing that you care. I personally apologize if I gave anyone a scare. It was meant for good fun on April 1. Humor is needed from time to time and we all need to laugh and smile more |
While we tried to make it authentic, we did leave a bunch of clues such as:
- Pictures provided have been published before on my blogs or websites from previous events
- No official announcement from TTU, and many more...
However, there were some important facts in the article which will be officially announced soon. You have to play detective and pick out the real stuff. No, they are good news, not bad
We love SPICE. We love Texas Tech. We love Lubbock. We love the Knight Raiders. We love the people we work with. We are not quitting. We are not giving up on US chess. We are not quitters.
You have my word that my husband and I will continue to work hard day and night to bring positive changes for our game in spite of the massive road blocks. Thank you for your support. I believe that together we can overcome the racism, sexism and destructive politics to make a big difference for chess.
Special thanks to everyone who contributed to this prank! Happy April 1!
|Apr-02-08|| ||AmyBeercondo: Any truth to the rumour that
Bobby Knight has been asked to coach the Hungarian Olympiad team....?
|Apr-02-08|| ||WannaBe: <AmyBeercondo> Yes, Bobby Knight will be their new Synchronized Swimming Team's Coach.|
|Apr-02-08|| ||Susan Polgar: Bobby Knight can do everything :)
He's actually very different in person. He's always been very nice to me.
|Apr-02-08|| ||slomarko: more than 1000 emails in 24h? really?|
|Apr-02-08|| ||Jim Bartle: Susan: Maybe you could throw a chess clock across the room if one of your players blunders, or you disagree with an arbiter's ruling.|
Seriously, yes, Bobby Knight is an extremely sharp and engaging man. I've listened to his analysis of games which seemed clairvoyant. The teamwork of his undefeated 1976 NCAA champions (Quinn Buckner, Scott May) was amazing to see.
The problem seems to be that he doesn't even consider that other people may have valid points which are not identical to his.
At the moment cnnsi.com is featuring some of the best articles in SI's history. One is Frank Deford's profile of Knight, called "The Rabbit Hunter." Shows both good and not-so-good sides of Knight.
|Apr-02-08|| ||MaxxLange: Good luck in Hungary! I hope Sam Sloan does a good job as the new USCF President.|
|Apr-02-08|| ||Augalv: <MaxxLange: Good luck in Hungary! I hope Sam Sloan does a good job as the new USCF President.>|
It was a prank dude.
<Susan Polgar: It was meant for good fun on April 1. >
|Apr-02-08|| ||MaxxLange: Yes, just trying to discourage her from repeating in 2009 :)|
|Apr-02-08|| ||RookFile: Do people think this story is funny?|
|Apr-02-08|| ||Augalv: <MaxxLange: Yes, just trying to discourage her from repeating in 2009 :)>|
Yeah, I think she is going to repeat in 2009, but we are not going to fall for it again. I hope.
|Apr-02-08|| ||drkodos: What April Fools jokes do best is reveal the malevolent side of people: the very same facet of their character they are usually deeply hiding or denying even having.|
|Apr-02-08|| ||MichAdams: Susan Polgar, <Princess of Darkness>.|
|Apr-02-08|| ||James Demery: Why Princess of Darkness Mich?|
