SamAtoms1980: <Check It Out: I came here to see the flys…> You mean the flyys, right? As in "Flen flyys"?

SamAtoms1980: <Domdaniel: A zero-word review is impressive.> Heh, it's reminiscent of the facetious "Mate in 0" problems where you produce checkmate by turning the board upside-down.

SamAtoms1980: Heh, very nice ending. The crown remains on the fjord.

SamAtoms1980: 17....Rc1 capitalizes on a double pin. "Very Difficult" seems like an overbid; I saw the combination in about 18 seconds.

SamAtoms1980: Predictably, the inaugural College Football Playoff gets under way with a healthy share of controversy. Six teams were worthy but there was only space for 4. The following would be my ideal version of a college football playoff: (1) Alabama vs. winner of (5) TCU / (4) tOSU ...
