Chessboxing

Ever heard of chess boxing?  Don’t worry if you haven’t — you’re in distinguished company, as I only heard of it this morning when I saw it on someone’s wall.  Rounds of boxing are interspersed with intervals of chess playing — a workout for the body and the mind.

I suppose I could get more excited about this if I didn’t think hate boxing so much.  I’ve always thought there’s something a little sick about enjoying watching one human being the crap out of another one.  And since boxing causes brain damage, it seems like a bad joke to combine it with something that requires concentration and strategic thinking skills.
