A game of chess - could have been fun if not for opponent's blunder/forfeit.

This is a game of chess I was playing against a higher ranked player. I am the white pieces. It was a really fun game with a 30 minute timer, that ended when my opponent mad a blunder of a move and forfeited. I was trying to keep control over the center of the board, and used my rooks to do so, making a conscious effort to do so because I normally don't get the rooks into the game early enough. They're a valuable weapon!!

My Wordpress Blog was Hacked!!

Well, I got hacked, so I'm going to have to reinstall my blog. For now I am reverting back to this old one. I've also made my passwords harder to guess.

I got on ESPN to read about "Heel Of A Win" Here's the story:

Clemson is winless in Caple Hill. But the Tiger did snap a 10-game losing streak to North Carolina on Wednesday night 83-64. Recap » Road Warriors: TexasVideo PittsburghVideo Blog »

HARTFORD, Conn. -- Hands up, really, from Monroeville to Butler, who honest-to-goodness thought Pittsburgh was going to start the Big East atop the standings at 4-0?

If your hand is up, you're fibbing.

Yet here Pitt stands, in familiar territory: as Big East co-leaders with Villanova after beating Connecticut, 67-57.

And this isn't just smoke and mirrors. The Panthers have won three of their four in some of the most hostile away courts in the Big East: at Syracuse, at Cincinnati at Connecticut.

What's most impressive from this win is how Pitt won: it led big, gave it up, led big again, gave it up again and came back. Young teams aren't supposed to have the mental toughness to do that. Yet there was Ashton Gibbs after a disastrous stretch for the Panthers -- when they went more than nine minutes with just one field goal -- swishing a 3-pointer in transition to push Connecticut back to a four-point hole.

The Panthers still have deficiencies. They don't have a true point guard and in this conference, that can be disastrous.

Still, minus four starters from a year ago, the Panthers are leading the Big East.

So feel free to put your hands up Pittsburgh fans -- this Panthers team is legit."

Did you notice the misspelled word? HA! IT was on the main ESPN website. Fancy Fancy
