Controversy Erupts in Chess World
UK Chess Grandmaster Nigel Short didn't wince words when he stated that men are “hardwired” to be better at the game than women. He went onto say that we should “gracefully accept it as a fact” that men possess different skills to women that make them better able to play chess at a high level. Shockingly, this didn't go over well with the female chess community. Belgium Chess Grandmaster Judit Polgar had some choice words for Short.
President Obama Disses Union Hockey
Union College won the 2014 Frozen Four and coach Rick Bennett thought that meant a trip to the White House to meet President Obama. Think again. The White House told the team it had no plans to recognize the school, even though Yale's national championship hockey team visited the White House in March 2014. I won't get into politics in Hot Clicks for a million reasons, but as someone who actually attended Union College for a few semesters, this is super lame.
