Well, week 3 has started, and its time for me to get nervous. Every week, I spend a lot of time working on the lineups and when the week starts, my heart starts to pound. I hate not being able to affect the outcome of the match. All I can do is watch from the sidelines. No pinch hitters, no calling to the bullpen for help, no running of gadget plays, or calling for a corner blitz. Just sitting and watching intently.
There were no real opening surprises except that Todd Andrews played e4 instead of the d4 that we've seen. He must have a prep for Loren's Alekhine. We'll see how that plays out later.
