  WannaBe: Huskies scored 10 TDs. Won 70-21. Ouch.
Oct-09-16  saffuna: Oregon's on the receiving end of what they used to give everybody. Team Nike has hit hard times.

  Shams: Unfortunately WSU creamed Stanford too last night...Cougars aren't bad but that is going to take a fair amount of luster off what was UW's best win.
Oct-09-16  saffuna: Right, Stanford has gotten hammered badly two weeks in a row. Seems they don't have a quarterback, at a college which has had several all-time greats.

A couple of my relatives must really be suffering. One has lived and died with Stanford sports for more than fifty years. I remember seeing him right after a surprisingly close loss to USC in 1968, when OJ Simpson, trapped behind the line, threw a pass which led to the winning FG. I thought he would be pleased that it was so close (and the team was young) after getting smashed several years in a row.

  Boomie: Stanford has an injury depleted secondary. Against Air Leach and one of the best QBs in all of Christendom, that is a recipe for disaster.

Great week for Washington sports.

Premium Chessgames Member
  Shams: <Boomie> If they make the playoffs we should find a bar and meet up to watch.

  WannaBe: Soccer on ice season starts today.


Oct-12-16  saffuna: Pretty good Onion-type fake article, saying an NHL rookie named Auston Matthews scored on his first three shots ever. I almost could have believed it, but then the writer went too far, and said Matthews plays for the Toronto Maple Leafs, and I know that can't be true.
Oct-15-16  NakoSonorense: Hi, <Shams>! Yeah, everything's well. How've you been?

I haven't been around a lot lately... I've been distracted by other things. I still play online chess every now and then, mostly on FICS. Sometimes I also play by the beach at the Santa Monica Chess Park. But I'm not sure how good that is for improving your skills, as there are gorgeous girls walking by. Very easy to lose your focus!

  WannaBe: It arrived. It arrived!!! 750 pages of good reading. Wheeeeeee!

Premium Chessgames Member
  Travis Bickle: <WannaBe: When 'Dogs win, books win.> That's been a suspicion of mine for awhile.. Do the odds makers (leg breakers) have a say in the outcome... Via paying off certain ref's, umpires, crooked zebra's & players on the take.
Premium Chessgames Member
  WannaBe: <Travis Bickle> Has happened before, and probably will happen again.

And you can read up on it.
