Damn You Harry!

I had almost forgotten about, one of the most popular chess sites on the net (even more popular than, according to Compete) and certainly a site that's full of entertainment. Like this blast from the past by none other than Australia's Chris Depasquale.

There is a classic scene in the movie Caddyshack where Chevy Chase knocks on a door, and unexpectedly finds it answered by a voluptuous young lady wrapped only in a towel. Without missing a beat, Chevy says, "My car just hit a water-buffalo. Can I borrow your towel?" Ever since seeing that, I have been prepared for the moment a beautiful young lady asks me what I write.

"At the moment I am working on a telephone directory," I told Sally without pausing, "and it would help me if you were to give me your address and telephone number." Sally giggled, and we got talking. When Sally found out I coached chess, she insisted on signing up for a course. Not wanting to miss out on the chance to spend time in the presence of this goddess every week, I made her sign a contract then and there.

You're just gonna have to find out what he was talking about. Read on in When Sally Met Harry (A Love Story).

The line is not from Caddyshack, but from Fletch
