Doesn't seem as important now, considering both mine and David's teams lost on Wednesday -- and therefore Chicago has taken sole possession of first place in the Western Division of the United States Chess League...
That said, the topic for debate was who is the better team: The Arizona Scorpions or the San Francisco Mechanics??? The answer is obvious, but be nice to David everyone ...
Well, if you guys play next week against each other if your managers let you, the bet should still be on. Think of something, not too humiliating, and give it a shot. If one loses, give him a mohawk, if the other loses, on the next TV broadcast, dress up like a clown with the makeup and rainbow fro. LOL just an idea
While this is starting to look like the race for 2nd place, it seems like the Mechanics have a tiny edge on the Scoprions. The mechanics have a very strong lineup, but either do to rating issues or such, they don't seem to get their best lineup on the board from week to week. IM Zilberstein has been a little shaky as well. SF as always though, has tremendous young players that make the lower boards very dangerous. This is not a team you want to play in the playoffs.
Arizona started out hot, but has started to cough and sputter with unimpressive play the last two weeks. They are definitely going to need a win next week, if they want to regain their early form.
edge to Mechanics. 2.5 -1.5 next week.
Arizona won of course... I actually forgot to collect from David on his bet... What did he bet again? Anyone remember???
David had to wear a Scorpions jersey next year when your two teams played again I think. Originally it was for him to shave his head I believe
Thanks! I will collect... :)
