Checkers and politics.

Italy President Sergio Mattarella congratulates 3-moves draughts World Champion Michelle Borghetti.

It doesn't happen very often when politics pay attention to checkers and it is a great thing that Miki try to beat this attitude!

I am playing checkers, not chess.

Bob Hope was asked if he wanted to run for USA president, he said he was not sure if his wife wanted to move to a smaller house...

I wish it would happen that mind sports were honored.

Then I read yesterday that at the University of Alabama, the university president is paid about $500,000 and the football coach is paid about $6,000,000.

Is there something wrong with this picture, and does it say something about our values?
