Video Del Fuego, Part XLII

And now for something completely different ... and, I have to say, something that I'm not entirely sure is for real. But it looks awesome. I leave it up to you to judge. Chessboxing: is this a real sport, or an elaborate hoax?

It's almost enough to make me want to take up boxing. But then I remember that I'm only 5'6". So, I'm usually giving up a couple of inches of reach, which is not a fun place to be. I'd have to be murderously good at chess ... which I'm not. Oh, well.

I can see you looking at the date on the calendar. And I don't blame you. I think this is for real, but until I see it with my own eyes, I'll always wonder ... but to an extent, I don't care. If it's a hoax, at least it's an entertaining one.
