Fantasy baseball and chess

The MLB season ended this week. Congratulations to the Red Sox and Rockies. My fantasy baseball season ended September 30. I won the Pippin’s league, finished second in a Yahoo public league, made the championship round with two teams, and finished in the first division both halves of the Sporting News season. Almost every morning the first thing I did after I woke up was manage my fantasy teams. I think I will limit myself to two leagues next year.

I have been playing a lot of Internet chess and studying the game the past two weeks. As I write this I feel as if I have emerged from a cave. Even though I am a rank amateur and always will be, I really forgot a lot about the game after a five year layoff. Some things, however, are coming back to me.

The mix of enjoyment, anxiety, and escape I get from playing games on the Internet probably deserves further analysis, but it is a nice day and must go out and enjoy some of it.
