I suck at Chess

I suck at Chess

Well, Iโ€™m now 0-4 in Chess. I guess I just donโ€™t see CheckMate. (Which is kinda important in Chess. :P) Iโ€™ll stay at it. Iโ€™m a glutton for punishment.

I watched my sibling and my brother in law bike race yesterday. It is very cool to watch, but I find it rather emotional for some reason. First off, it seems so risky. I overheard an older cyclist talking about it and he remarked how crazy he must have been when he was younger to have participated in such an event. Iโ€™d say. The cyclists zoom around at often 40km/h or faster with no protection other than a helmet. The races are rarely called if it rains. (yes, think about it, rain + roads + fast bikes) And they usually bunch up. There is nothing like seeing a peloton of 30 bikes zip past to make your heart skip a beat. I mean, anyone makes a slight error and youโ€™ll have a human omelet. So, watching people you care about zip by like that puts you on the edge. It is a very impressive sport. Watching the cyclist work up a massive hill after already biking 100km lets you know what heart, dedication and courage really means.

Updated: No longer chess at unsung.
