My wife came in and got me all excited and I hit the wrong button.....
I was drunk & cannot remember anything so no point asking me ?
My old standby excuse: man i was about to really get ready to crush you , if i had not gotten CHECKMATED you would have been in real trouble !
Our favorite OTB excuse !
I couldn't tell the difference between the queen and the king.
When I get crushed early: "Unlike you I don't need to remember opening lines"
Bobby Fisher did not make excuses when he lost as a kid growing up in Brooklyn, He just started Crying !!
When I run out of time: "I made better moves earlier"
I have actually had that. But perhaps not as many times as I have claimed...
Chess? Oooohhh...I thought we were playing draughts!!
Oh baby oh oh oh oh oh oh oh ... YA ! What? I dropped a piece?! Sorry, someone Distracted me ...
i was calculating 10 moves ahead
I woulda won if coulda had white.
My dog ate my brain.
"I saw that coming when I misclicked ten moves back. I just wanted to make sure that you could see it."
Yup, I've heard that one before!
"I underestimated you." Heard it about a dozen time from one guy. Thrashed him mercilessly.
Being fairly honest I just say ''ooops'' ( but sometimes delay incase never seen... :)
Its not about winning or loseing, its about ghetting your king to the otheir side man.
At least you don't need an excuse when you lose to these kids at OTB tournys, They always provide me with one. I say congradulations on your victory young man, they say " Sorry i checkmated you Mr. but you really SUCK " LOL
