How time flies. It’s nearly time to pack up the sled and mush back to Parsippany, known here in Boston’s metrowest area as “Framingham times infinity”. (A reference to our equally lovely Route 9.)
I will again be pseudo-live-blogging the event this year.
To recap, US Amateur Team East chess tournament teams give themselves – er, ourselves – names which are supposed to be funny but which rarely are. Usually there are one or two pop culture memes chosen and flogged to death. That means this year we’ll expect a profusion of puns centered around:
- Health care reform
- The final season of LOST and/or Heroes
Am I missing something obvious?
I also predict there will be one team named Inglourious Basterds or something close.
