Congratulations Fabi!
Thanks, Barry. As a patzer myself, I look forward to the championship match.

I have a similar rule of thumb. If you can do it with a cigarette in your mouth, it isn't a sport. I've heard the arguments on car racing, but I just don't see it.

Oh my goodness, how did this get resurrected?

Is Checkers a SPORT? How about Monopoly? I suppose those games require far less skill than Chess, but isn't the athleticism of playing those games about the same as chess? Some chess games last days or longer. Ever play a full game of Monopoly in less than an hour?

You need to come up to Canada and play in an old-timers hockey tournament.

And don't you know, when you're drunk, everything is better. I'm better looking, smarter, thinner, more confident, and just better with the ladies...

I resurrected it to mention that Caruana is going to play for the world championship, but the thread took a different direction. That happens.
