    Iowa City man dies after chess match...

    Iowa City man dies after chess match leads to fight | DesMoinesRegister.com | The Des Moines Register
    IOWA CITY, Iowa A late-night game of chess between neighbors went from a shouting match to a fight that left one man dead early Sunday morning.

    Michael A. Steward died of his injuries at a local hospital. Police charged his neighbor David Christian with second-degree homicide and public intoxication.
    Wow... I wonder how well you can play chess while drunk. I have to imagine that there aren't a lot of murders with chess involved.

    Imagine that guy in prison.

    "What are you in for?"

    "Dude tried to get over on me while playing chess......I beat him to death."

    I'm sure he's really bummed about that Public Intox charge to go along with Second-Degree Homicide.


    43-54 Record in CF Mafia. The most games played and wins by any player in Cyclone Fanatic History. Yes, I'm a nerd.

    Another public intox for Iowa football.

    Also, I heard they were actually playing checkers, it was just so hard for them they thought it was chess.

    A quote from comedian Dimitri Martin:

    "I heard a guy on the subway say 'Man, I'm really good at checkers.' To me, that's the same as saying 'Man, I'm not good at a lot of things.'"

    This reminds me to tell all you youngsters out there to always wear a helmet while playing chess.

    Re: Iowa City man dies after chess match...

    I'm trying to figure out if killing someone due to a chess disagreement gets you respect in prison because you look so crazy that you'd murder out of a chess match or do you look weak for being a chess geek.

    It'll prove out that there wasn't actually a fight, the guy just died from being a Hawkeye trying to play chess--his brain exploded.

    I'm sure somehow a football player is involved and KF is covering it up.
