Big props to all of the outstanding chess players out there. Chess is not a sport, though. It's a great game, but so are euchre, poker, cribbage, Monopoly, Scrabble, Chutes and Ladders, Tiddly Winks, etc. I played tennis and basketball in high school. I played tennis in college and also coached men's and women's college tennis for 4 years. I currently coach middle school basketball and Little League baseball.
