Re: Junior selection: FIDE World/European Championships

I feel a bit of an idiot . I now realise that we are well represented at the WORLD YOUTH CHAMPIONSHIPS as opposed to the WORLD JUNIOR CHAMPIONSHIP (which I guess is mainly 19 year olds ? ).

Re: NFL Fantasy Football

I think I am right that I intended to pick Reggie Bush, but the person in front of me got him, so I just picked my next best running back.
