Sep-14-14  Everett: This kids teeth are rotting right out of his head. Runs in the family, apparently.
Premium Chessgames Member
  HeMateMe: That's horrible, first reference I've ever heard about "bad teeth" on this site. Not that worst stuff isn't spouted on the Rogoff page...
Sep-14-14  Moszkowski012273: What the hell are you talking about <Everett>? The kids teeth are fine I just saw him yesterday.
Sep-15-14  Everett: <HeMateMe> have you considered the possibility that I'm riffing on his last name? Guess not.
Premium Chessgames Member

Sep-15-14  Everett: Thanks
Sep-15-14  Moszkowski012273: Ahhhhahahahaha....
