    Pardon Our Blunders Show Recap: September 22th, 2011

       Welcome to the weekly review of Pardon Our Blunders. Every week our Hosts cover varied topics—all chess-related. As regular viewers know, their coverage normally leads to some very interesting and entertaining banter. So now, without further delay, let’s get to Topic #9:

    Do you have any predictions on what the final match will be in the United States Chess League?

       Basically the feeling was whoever would get to the Championship match would lose to the Chicago Blaze. As of right now, they are undefeated at 4-0 winning 3.5.4 points almost every week.

       Here are the current standings:

       Chicago seems like a definite top contender to challenge for the U.S.C.L. Championship this year. No team, if they keep this pace up, will be able to come against them once the playoffs begin. For everything USCL related, check out the homepage.
