Here are the match ups for Week 1 of the 2014 season of the U.S. Chess League.  

The Kingfishers are starting the season off with a potentially tough match up against the Archbishops of St. Louis, who’s sporting a few players for the Webster University squad this year.

We love a good challenge and fighting chess is exciting chess.

More information to come later about where you can follow the games in progress, live.

Excited to be the new Assistant Manager for the Baltimore Kingfishers Chess Team.  

They will, once again, be competing in the U.S. Chess League between August 27th and December 3rd.

I love this game!

That awkward moment when …

You’re washing your hands in a public restroom and lock eyes with the dude exiting a stall, bypassing the sink, and heading out the door to infect the world with his goojie.  He must’ve forgotten he was wearing a name tag. 

Dear world,

Dave didn’t wash his hands.

Peter approached Jesus and asked him,
“Lord, if my brother sins against me,
how often must I forgive him?
As many as seven times?”
Jesus answered, “I say to you, not seven times but seventy-seven times.
That is why the Kingdom of heaven may be likened to a king
who decided to settle accounts with his servants.
When he began the accounting,
a debtor was brought before him who owed him a huge amount.
Since he had no way of paying it back,
his master ordered him to be sold,
along with his wife, his children, and all his property,
in payment of the debt.
At that, the servant fell down, did him homage, and said,
‘Be patient with me, and I will pay you back in full.’
Moved with compassion the master of that servant
let him go and forgave him the loan.
When that servant had left, he found one of his fellow servants
who owed him a much smaller amount.
He seized him and started to choke him, demanding,
‘Pay back what you owe.’
Falling to his knees, his fellow servant begged him,
‘Be patient with me, and I will pay you back.’
But he refused.
Instead, he had the fellow servant put in prison
until he paid back the debt.
Now when his fellow servants saw what had happened,
they were deeply disturbed,
and went to their master and reported the whole affair.
His master summoned him and said to him, ‘You wicked servant!
I forgave you your entire debt because you begged me to.
Should you not have had pity on your fellow servant,
as I had pity on you?’
Then in anger his master handed him over to the torturers
until he should pay back the whole debt.
So will my heavenly Father do to you,
unless each of you forgives his brother from his heart.”

When Jesus finished these words, he left Galilee
and went to the district of Judea across the Jordan.

I love this parable - a good reminder.

Fall is coming, can you feel it?!  I LOVE this time of year … Makes me want to buy school supplies.
