Best of '05

What? You didn't know that I was a band.....wagon......jumper......something? Well I am! Anyway, this one is different than the million other "Best of" posts..........somehow. I'm going to cover a few of my favorite posts from my fellow Knights over the past year. I'll be updating it over the next few days so this list isn't complete yet. Anyway, on to the list!

Don takes on Kramnik
Don lays the smackdown on a World Champion.

Don takes on Walmart
This was one of the first posts I read from Don and was the inspiration for me to join this crazy bunch.

Don takes on everyone
More from the twisted mind of the founder.

PMD abducted in the Badlands of Level 40
This was part four in a six part series I like to call "The Adventures of PMD" that starts with this post. If you haven't read that series I highly recommend you spend a couple of minutes to do so. I like to compare PMD's writing to Don's in creativity. Whereas Don likes to take his writing in crazy unexpected directions, PMD tends to lean towards the more classical approach with plot lines and twists. As far as I can tell PMD was the first Knight to be abducted, although not the first to lose his mind during the crazy quest.

Jim takes on Larry Evans
This one was made famous by "Chess Life". Nuff said.

Supercharge your life
Jim shows us how to speed things up. Hawt!

TS vs a windmill
Do they have a lot of windmills in the Netherlands?

TS vs his garden
TS shows us how a chess couple lives.
