Hooves Clattering on the Tarmac

Nov 26, 2020, 12:00 PM

There’s a glut of The Simpsons references this week, but don’t let that put you off. We salute Magnus Carlsen’s sportsmanship, celebrate inspirational junior coaches, and invent our own novelty chess set!


Phil has a cold, Chris is anticipating getting one, and Jon can’t escape the sound of muntjac deer. But nothing can stop us spending another 50 minutes sweeping the decks for anything even vaguely chess-adjacent.
