Well, cross it off my list of things to do before I die: I shook hands with the greatest chess player ever - Garry Kasparov!

How? When? Why? 

November 1st at this event: http://blogs.forbes.com/oliverchiang/2010/11/02/garry-kasparov-the-last-revolutionary-technology-was-the-apple-ii/

It was amazing!! I was in awe. He really is brilliant. Awesome speech.

    When I met him he talked all about his brilliancy over Topalov, the rook sac game. Unfortunately later on in the evening he was on a panel with the Stanford Men's Football coach, Tyrone Willingham, and proceeded to argue that chess is a sport.

    Tyrone was gracious in a sense, and didn't offer his own opinion, but I remember thinking it was a little cheeky of Kasparov.

    Did you get him to sign up for chess.com?
