Robert James Fischer is considered by many to be the greatest chess player of all time. He was born on March 9, 1943 in Chicago, Illinois. His mother was homeless when he was born.

It’s one of his highest passions to talk about, and I’m happy to hear about what brings out the spark in his eyes when he talks about something he loves.
I'm, admittedly, a bit of a nerd. Well, not really a bit of one—I'm a huge one. I think the real precursor to being an official geek is whether or not you play Dungeons and Dragons. I'm not talking about any of the video game adaptions, I mean the real thing—playing mat, dice, and all.
This time last year, I scoffed at those who played Dungeons and Dragons, and outside of a few encounters that are best not talked about here, those who played video games were not looked at kindly.
