News, but not the serious kind
Sweaty sport is all pawn, no brawn
Blog Guy, you used to be so good at covering stupid sports, but not lately. Come on! Your blog is the only place we can go to read about the really offbeat sports the big networks don’t want us to see!
That’s a fair point. Let me make it up to you with Flop Sweat Chess.
Yeah, these guys are playing chess in a thermal bath, as you can see by the thick presence of steam and vapor and perspiration.
Is it a lot like regular dry chess?
No. It may not be clear in these photos, but instead of chessmen you use little sticks of deodorant, which come in very handy.
The two sides are generally Unscented Original vs. Musk. Usually the paper chessboard dissolves before checkmate.
See here, Blog Guy, that’s just really dumb, even for you. I mean, how do you even know who the winner is?
Easy. While these guys are playing, the winner is the one who’s back in the locker room going through their wallets.
