A little football

 - Yes, I know I’ve been away for a while; I've been doin' things. you know, trying out other chess sites, and I gotta tell you, this is the place to be. Not that anyone missed me or anything! :) No, really, I haven't been "Away", I've just not been in the forms lately. I've been keeping up my games and all, thought, perhaps not as many as I normally would have. I've just been realizing lately, how much chess is a part of my life. I know it's strange, and probably not good for me, but I really really like chess.

 - Me and my dad got into a discussion today about what is better: Chess, or Football.

My argument was: "How can anyone really like football. I mean, what is there to like. What is it about football that drives people completely nuts!? (Oh, yeah, I'm free to say this by the way, because this is not a football website, it's for chess :)) At least in chess, your using you mind. It's a completely mental game. And you, dad, are not involved in football. Sure you like it and all, you watch it, keep up with it, but you don't play. What is this?"

My dad's flimsy fight for his little (BIG) sport was: "I used to be involved in it, and what's with you and chess?"

All I'm saying here people, is that I don't see the appeal to football. That's it, story's over, you can all go home!
