  A long time ago in manhattan I saw something that was a revelation to me in chess.  It was a foreign guy who kept saying 'forward' as he defeated his opponents. 

His whole theme was 'forward', and he kept saying it over and over again. 

Today I would like to present a game in this spirit.  To properly get in the mood of this game you must say 'Forward' every time one of my pieces moves towards the other side of the board. 

You will note that at no point in the game did I voluntarily move a piece backwards. 

The game finishes by one of my pawns going 'forward' to the other side, touchdown!!!!

I've also given the chat log of the game.  This was my first chess game that I played with my left hand (with the mouse).  I heard that if you use your left hand more you get more right brained so I'm trying that. 

It is true that at times in the game I had to move some of my pieces sideways.  Keep in mind that this is just preparation for more forward.
