I started late with chess, only playing chess seriously when I was 23 or thereabouts. I was 13 when Fischer won the title, and after a brief period of excitement, put chess on the side for the next 10 years or so.

I am educated in Business/Finance but have explored a variety of occupations including waiter, bartender, professional golfer, loan officer, intelligence specialist, fraud investigator and leave of absence specialist. I think I left off a few but no mind.

My primary interests are history, reading, humor, wargaming, chess and exercise.

People priority runs family, friends and then whoever makes sense. All else need not apply.

Frankly, too many people at this site are way too obsessed with chess, almost to the point of being hypnotically addicted. My message to these individuals is simple: "Get over it and take control of your life"

Its understandable though, I went through the "crazed" chess phase too which lasted 30 odd years, but now I'm bored with standard chess and only play Chess960 or FischerRandom, which levels the playing field and eliminates those same old positions reached by those same old openings. 960 forces one to "think on their feet" instead of just having to memorize move order(s).

I am a life long Packers fan what with the first Pro game I saw was the Ice Bowl sending the Packers into Super Bowl II. I have the book 'Ice Bowl' signed by Bart Starr. Its a treasure though Hornung is my favorite Packer. Don't tell Bart

I am also a lifetime Baltimore Orioles fan with my oldest baseball memory being their loss to the Miracle Mets in 1969. Fortunately, the O's gathered a number of World Series Victories over the years after that sad debacle to soften the pain of that loss.
