Chess Freak in Aussie Idol
Look, I swear to God, I only watch it because there is nothing else to watch on TV. In any case, if you didn't know it already, my very high brow and well-cultured chess friends, the latest season of Australian Idol is on again. I won't dwell too much on this but it seems that one of the contestants, Daniel Mifsud of Sydney, was once a "chess freak".
He was quoted by the Sunday Tele today as saying, "I used to be a chess champion. In Year six at school I won my Sydney class tournament."
Well I reckon we should vote for this guy. He can sing too. Check out his MySpace for some sample tunes.
