Speaking of spoilt chess kids, tonight I saw an episode of House entitled, The Jerk. It's about some 16-year old chess prodigy that falls to some mysterious illness and the unorthodox Dr House then has to try and fix him. Problem is this prodigy is a complete dick! You just wanna smack him.
Anyway in one scene, while Dr House and the kid play blitz, the following dialogue takes place:
House: Bird's Opening. Passive approach. Sign of a coward.What the...? I suppose we can put that down to ignorant scriptwriters. Or perhaps some of you think that there are some truths in those lines?
Nate: Sicilian Defense. Sign of an idiot.
