I am so excited.
It's better than the Super Bowl, the World Series, and the NCAA Tournament combined.
I've been looking forward to this for weeks.
I can barely stand it.
It's got me pumped.
It is none other than the regional city play offs. For chess.
I won't lie. This ain't no Cinderella story from my perspective. Daniel's school is last year's city-wide champs. The pressure is on. They are the favorites.
But there's still worry. Dr. Korenman, Russian chess master extraordinaire (read about him in this blog), is the coach for the primary competition. He has worked with many of the students from Dan's school, but another team owns him.
We may be in trouble, folks.
Joe, as usual, is rolling his eyes and asking why I don't get this excited about the kids' sporting events.
And I offer my usual response:
Have you met me?
