Each week, The Traveling Twosome chooses a picture from one of our journeys, junkets, shows, or competitions for the Pic of the Week! Leave your comments on our picture and join in the fun!

This week’s pic is of Char enjoying her victory over Louis in their recent Battle of the Sexes Chess Match.  The timing of this rematch of the Battle of the Sexes event couldn’t have been better!  It occurred on the heels of a news story about chess Grand Master Nigel Short who said that girls just don’t have the brains to play chess.  He said, “rather than fretting about inequality, perhaps we should just gracefully accept it as a fact.”  Short drew much criticism for these remarks… especially since he has been beaten 8 times by Judit Polar (who is obviously a woman).  Char, doing her part to show the world that Nigel Short’s comments were sexist and wrong, defeated Louis in their recent hard-fought match.

    Okay, Char, this picture reveals who won the chess match then! Congratulations!!! It looks like it might have been a close one! When is the video going to be ready for viewing? Also, don’t forget that pic of the week! You promised it would be last week!

    I knew Char was going to win the chess match but you should have kept the winner a secret anyway until the video was posted. So you backed his King into a corner! Good job, Char! So Louis, are you willing to admit Char’s superior logic and strategy skills now? Char, don’t let him make excuses. He owes you an explanation for his defeat since he supposedly was so much more strategic than you. LOL Go ahead, Louis! We are all waiting to hear your explanation!

    That’s what I call checkmate! Ummmm, Louis, looks like you have some words to eat! Can’t wait to see how it was done, Char! Don’t forget that pic of the week, either! It should be on the whiteboard list I gave ya! 😀

    I really love how your attitude shows itself in this picture! You’re saying “Come on, men. Who’s next?”
