  whiskeyrebel: Wager accepted; Dodgers vs. Phil's for a bottle of the finest 2009 Budweiser..payable at the 2009 National open. Good luck my friend.
Premium Chessgames Member
  brankat: A whole bottle?! You guys sure know how to live it up. As some say, "Go big, or go home" :-)

Good luck to both!

Premium Chessgames Member
  whiskeyrebel: I used to have the slothful habit of drinking before noon in Vegas, but I got over it. Now I sleep 'til 6 or 7 pm like WannaBe.
Premium Chessgames Member
  WannaBe: And so, about the best record in baseball and how the team(s) perform in post-season?
Premium Chessgames Member
  WannaBe: I, being a resident of California, a citizen, and passport carrying rabbit of United State of America. And also a permanent absentee voter, have received the ballot, (in the mail) and have already casted my vote.

I voted for that guy, and that guy, and her, and it. I also voted no, no, no, maybe, maybe, maybe, yes, yes, yes, and Rxd2 on the state/county/city measures.

Premium Chessgames Member
  whiskeyrebel: It was a nice fighting ballgame last night. This series is gonna go to 7 games I bet.
Premium Chessgames Member
  WannaBe: Getting our rear-end kicked right now, and it's only the bottom of the 3rd inning! =(
Premium Chessgames Member
  whiskeyrebel: Wow, a 4 hour marathon. It was kind of weird seeing coaches Bowa and Lopes working against their old clubs. Watching the games from L.A. on TV will make me nostalgic for Dodger-dogs and some of the worst parking lot traffic jams I can remember.
Oct-13-08  just a kid: From your post on Anand-Kramnik page<1.a3 1/2-1/2.>1.e4 e5 2.Ke2!!!! 1-0 Black realizes he has a forced loss.=)
Oct-14-08  just a kid: What are Caissar Nominations?
Oct-14-08  Open Defence: its a rigged event that was hijacked by <Red October> last year :)
Premium Chessgames Member
  WannaBe: <just a kid> An annual event, where we pat ourselves on the back. Much like Hollywood's stars do.
Premium Chessgames Member
  WannaBe: I know the series aren't over yet, but are we going to see a Tampa-Philly World Series??
Premium Chessgames Member
  whiskeyrebel: We still have to hear the fat ladies sing. Do the Dodgers have the testicular fortitude to come back? My son Elvis says stick a fork in 'em, tommorow night will be a time for raised fists and bellowing South Philly style accompanied by cheesesteaks and beer of yer choice drank out of big muggs with shotglasses of amber fluid dropped into the foam. Personally, I think it still might take 'til game 6 or 7 to finish the job.
Oct-15-08  just a kid: <Wannabe<That is what I want to see.I originally wanted a brewers-rays even though that is not good for TV ratings.
Premium Chessgames Member
  WannaBe: Since it's a rest day in the Kramnik/Anand match, and since I'm so full of original ideas. (I'd never <STEAL> anything!)

Identify the song title of the following (partial) lyrics, and as a hint, they are all from Three Dogs Night. <AND NO CHEATING!!> =)

1. Ooooh... yeah Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah (Palin?)

2. Who care about evil and social injustice (Obama?)

3. As it slowly rambles on and on (McCain?)

4. I stand alone... (G.W.?)

5. I just wanna be (WannaBe?)

6. They don't abuse it (Liberman?)

7. The beautiful sight (End of election ads?)

Premium Chessgames Member
  WannaBe: 'Less Boston pulls <THE> greatest come back <EVER>, and wins the series (Not just game 5, mind you), it will be Philly-Tampa for the World Series.
Premium Chessgames Member
  WannaBe: Holy Guacamole, it's a one-run game now!!
Oct-17-08  NakoSonorense: And they have won! Unbelievable.
Premium Chessgames Member
  norami: Just got back from Kenmore Square. You never know with a team that is no longer cursed.
Premium Chessgames Member
  WannaBe: I take credit for the BSox's comeback, without my kibitz'n, they would have lost the game.

They read my post, and really got their acts together!

Premium Chessgames Member
  WannaBe: Wheeee!!! I am the wiener of the 49th, Intermediate section, group 343!!

I'm gonna take on the winner of Anand-Kramnik Match!!

Premium Chessgames Member
  brankat: <WannaBe> In that case, congratulations! Maybe You could start kibitzing some of my games at GK & QA :-)

I just lost 2 games at GK on time, after 2 moves. On Wednesday I thought it was Tuesday :-)

Premium Chessgames Member
  WannaBe: <brankat> After only 2 moves, that doesn't count as an official game... If I remember the rules of GK correctly...
Premium Chessgames Member
  SwitchingQuylthulg: Funny thing that, I too thought it was Tuesday on Wednesday. Luckily I'm so far removed from real life this didn't cause me any problems :-)
