It’s Times Like These That Make Me Love This Crazy World Of Ours

Ever heard of the WCBO? No? It stands for “World Chess Boxing Organization”. Participants in this new sport alternately play 4 minute rounds of speed chess and 2 minute boxing rounds with around a minute or two between rounds for the fighters to collect themselves. That’s awesome, if I may be so bold. The evil geniuses responsible for coming up with such an idea ought to be rewarded richly.
Boxing. Plus chess. Wow.
