Yesterday I went to play chess at Santana Row.
There's no greater feeling than demolishing an opponent who is: A) male, and B) 20 years your senior.
(And I say demolishing, because that's what happens when you're putting pressure on his king side with two rooks, a queen, and a bishop, while his defense amounts to a feeble knight which precipitates the inevitable if moved and leaves a threat of mate in less than five moves with only a subset of your attack pieces if not moved, while the rest of his major pieces, queen included, are floundering about uselessly away from the action on the opposite side of the board.)
Heh. Reminds me of back when I was a kid. :)
