I get paid to be suspicious, when there's nothing to be suspicious about!

HeMateMe: first prize for Hou. I have a feeling it's better for her to play in both the all male events and the female events. She might lose too many games in all male events, which might not make her a better chess player if she spends too much time defending losing positions. Balance is ...

HeMateMe: I remember that position, (above). If you can't calculate a forced win, then take the draw. That's what Kasparov would do. Nak is already Carlsen's Bogolyubov.

HeMateMe: I remember Ernie (No D) diGregorio. Played for the Buffalo Braves, with Bob McAdoo. They could put up some big numbers, but they gave up big numbers, too. Maybe Randy Smith was on those teams, a great all around athlete. A small guy tough enough to play forward. I think there's ...

  kingfu: Prime example of bad stuff just on the Giants : Find a picture of Barry Bonds when he played for the Pirates. He weighed 180 and hit many home runs but mostly doubles just like dad Bobby who played next to Mays. Cut to Barry on The Giants weighing 235. Gee, I didn't know eating Wheaties could do that. Or maybe it was something else. Barry then or 'roided was (and is) an a$$. Sat by himself in the locker room with headphones. Mays (and Hank Aaron) both weighed 175. In 1950 and 1980.

After SF, I moved to Seattle. Ken Griffey, Jr was largely ignored with 630 lifetime NATURAL Home Runs. It should have been lots more but Griffey could not keep from bashing into the Center field wall and missing many games due to injury.

Did I mention I also lived in LA. Ever see Koufax pitch? I have some catching up to do!

  LIFE Master AJ: << AJ, are you a Miami Heat fan? Did you watch the games? >>

I saw all or part of many of the games on TV, and I even paid a fee (on a sports network) to watch replays of a couple of the games.

So I guess the answer would be yes.

  LIFE Master AJ: I guess you are (were) a Spurs fan?

They came soooo close this year ....

Was it just one more win for them, or two?

  LIFE Master AJ: One person (on a sports channel) commenting on a news story, said that this was a fairly clean series, with few (big?/bad?) penalties.

Would you agree with this? (For myself, I did not pay close enough attention to the penalties.)

  HeMateMe: It was a hard fought, well played finals, 6 games. No fights. The Spurs are an aging team, and they just ran out of gas.

I personally don't like Miami because I feel the hero worship of LeBron James is unjustified. He isn't Jordan, Bill Russell or Magic Johnson, and I don't think he is going to make it into the rare air that those guys rose to. It's the curmudgeon in me--I like basketball when the coach plays nine guys and everyone scores in double figures.

  LIFE Master AJ: Cool. (I would say your assessment was "spot-on," as they would say.) I would also agree that while LeBron is great, he will never be (the) equal to Michael Jordan.

  HeMateMe: Yeah, I don't get it. Of course the USA has made mistakes. I'm not a God-dam robot. I just see the glass as being half full, not half empty.

We wouldn't touch a butt-hole like Syria with a ten foot pole if it weren't to prevent these chem weapons from proliferating, or to stop some other sort of genocide. The American taxpayers, most of them, don't even want us to do something this valuable, but we probably still will. A lot of people on this site think that your typical American is a Donald Trump persona, who plan to put a hotel and golf course on every piece of land that Americans have an association with. Apparently all Americans are fat, rich, and think the whole world is a big game of Risk.

Well, I wouldn't call me fat. A little fluffy perhaps.

I could use some time at the gym.

A lot of time actually.

OK, never mind. I'm fat.

  Eggman: Hey.

Regarding a recent discussion on the 'Kibitzers Cafe': Henry McCullough is not dead. Perhaps you're confusing him with Jimmy McCullough?

Oct-18-13
Premium Chessgames Member
  HeMateMe: Yes, it was Jimmy. Are there in fact two McCulloughs, both musicians?
Oct-18-13
Premium Chessgames Member
  Eggman: Yes, two McCulloughs, unrelated, and both members at one time of Wings!

  HeMateMe: Nice tune, Egg, thanks for posting. It doesn't sound quite as good as the later stuff like Fragile and close to the edge. They were just getting their feet wet as composers?

  Eggman: Something's Coming is a song by Sondheim / Bernstein from West Side Story. And no, Leonard Bernstein was not just getting his feet wet!
