SPRAGGETT ON CHESS
Bobby Fischer was the greatest chessplayer in the history of the game! How do we know that? Not just that he won everything that there was to win, and in brilliant style; not just that even the man considered to be the next best in history (Garry Kasparov) did Bobby the greatest tribute by being a Fischer ‘wanna be’ all of his professional life; not just the he was a living legend at the age of 20 (!). BUT that Bobby Fischer has become even BIGGER since his death two years ago!
There are already Hollywood films and HBO documentaries in the works for this American icon. And on the occasion of his birthday (today, March 9), USA-TODAY flashed ”happy birthday Bobby!” across its pages. (Now that is R.E.S.P.E.C.T
.). Move over Elvis Presley!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY BOBBY FISCHER!
”On this day in 1943, one of the greatest chess players in history was born.
Bobby Fischer’s talent, known in the chess world for decades, would become evident world-wide when he defeated Russian Boris Spassky for the world title in 1972.
Later, Fischer’s erratic personality and anti-Semitic rants would dominate his life. Click here for his confrontation with ABC’s Jeremy Schaap. The chess champion passed away in 2008.
Here is a news report on Fischer’s victory against Spassky”
