|Dec-24-12|| ||wordfunph: Maligayang Pasko!|
|Dec-25-12|| ||Boomie: <Shams: <Boomie> Did you know Ftacnik when he lived in Seattle?>|
Sorry I'm a little late to respond.
No. I never met Ftacnik.
I left the chess scene in 1981 after I blew a won game on 1st board in the final round of the Seattle Amateur (under 2000). The experience was so sour, I gave up tournament chess.
My knowledge of the Seattle chess scene is confined to the 70's. Also I went to Lone Pine a couple of years to watch Petrosian, Smyslov, Reshevsky, and scores of other strong players. And to hang out with Pacific Northwest friends like Yaz and Peter Biyiasas...
|Jan-10-13|| ||OhioChessFan: Tata Steel Moves Prediction Contest, sponsored by the legendary <chessmoron> and hosted in my forum, is now open. First round begins Saturday the 12th. Click on Elvis for details.|
|Jan-25-13|| ||HeMateMe: Hey, the sonics are coming back to Seattle, Shams. Break out the Slick Watts headbands, baby! Rain Man! Key arena will be rocking again. Those uniforms are butt-ugly, IMO, but nonetheless its great to have a pro basketball team in town.|
Maybe you and the Pearl Jam guys can do some one-hit bowls in the bathroom, between quarters? Beats waiting in long lines for over priced beers.
|Jan-25-13|| ||FSR: <Shams> That online etymological dictionary you cited is a great thing. Check out, for example, this NC-17-rated entry: http://bit.ly/OoIEE5|
|Jan-31-13|| ||Check It Out: My mom used to work with Slick Watts at Highpoint where she was a 2nd grade teacher and he the PE teacher. She said he was constantly on the hallway pay phone (can you imagine the days before cels?) making deals of...some sort.|
Come on Gus Williams, Jack Sikma and Downtown Freddy Brown!!
|Jan-31-13|| ||Jim Bartle: Dennis Johnson! Tom Burleson?|
|Jan-31-13|| ||Check It Out: Jim - yes, freckle-face DJ! Lenny Wilkins. Who was that lefty center Seattle had for awhile? He had a real flat sky hook that rarely went through the hoop...|
|Jan-31-13|| ||Check It Out: Oh, I think I'm thinking of the Big Smooth who came later...|
|Jan-31-13|| ||Jim Bartle: You must mean Sam Perkins, the guy who always looked as if he were about to fall asleep. Good player, though.|
|Feb-01-13|| ||Shams: Xavier McDaniel had his moments too, plus a cameo in "Singles".|
|Feb-01-13|| ||chancho: <Check It Out> You might be referring to Marvin Webster...|
|Feb-01-13|| ||Check It Out: <chancho> I thought that too - was he a lefty?|
|Feb-01-13|| ||chancho: <Check It Out: Was he a lefty?>|
|Feb-01-13|| ||Check It Out: That's the lefty skyhook I remember! Thanks, chancho.|
|Feb-07-13|| ||Abdel Irada: After our last <Kenneth Rogoff> posts about Israel/Palestine, I hazard two "guesses":|
(1) <HeMateMe> has been urgently called away from the forum and won't be back until late tomorrow.
(2) When <HMM> does return, he will happen to overlook our posts and will continue his arguments precisely as though they'd never been made.
|Feb-08-13|| ||Travis Bickle: <Abdel Irada> Do you always talk politics?|
|Feb-08-13|| ||Abdel Irada: <Travis>: That question is easily answered, and you needn't take my word for it: Just visit my user profile and see where I've kibitzed.|
|Apr-02-13|| ||gauer: <If Magnus is Magnum, who is Higgins?> Sean K Higgins visited the World open.|
|Apr-03-13|| ||Shams: <gauer> It simply won't do if our Higgins isn't old enough to drink wine.|
|Apr-11-13|| ||FSR: <Shams> Dunno if you noticed, but <perfidious> also responded to your question about what to do with one's DSB in the Reversed Benoni. The most intelligent response of the lot, I'd say.|
|Apr-12-13|| ||Shams: <FSR> Thanks. Very interesting.|
|Apr-13-13|| ||Travis Bickle: Shams I want to apologize to you for the racial slur I called you the other day. I'm sorry.
|Apr-13-13|| ||Shams: <Travis> No worries man. If we ever have to share a camel though, you're taking the back hump.|
|May-12-13|| ||technical draw: <Shams> Check out this spanish language chess site:|
