R.I.P. Bobby Fischer

My father taught me to play chess when I was 5 years old. I love the game; always have. I probably knew who Bobby Fischer was before I knew who Mister Rogers was.

Fischer died yesterday in Reykjavik, Iceland, where he was living since he became a wanted felon in the U.S. for the simple act of playing in a chess tournament in then-embargoed Yugoslavia. He was 64 years old.

Fischer was crazy as a bedbug, but he was an amazing chess player.
