CA - I teach Geometry and AP Stats at the high school level. I stopped playing chess online a while back and decided to let Rybka kick my tail around the board. According to Rybka I'm 1420 on my best day and embarrassing most other days. I'm a big fan of:

The Scandinavian
2-Proportion hypothesis testing
Sacrifices I would NEVER see
Chicago Bears
Oakland Athletics
Lacrosse
Actually playing chess over a live board.
