Hedge09282018Not exactly what I wrote. This works, but what I wrote is better and clearer.

Jerry (holding a large hammer):  He never sees it coming.
RJ (to Verne):  Why doesn’t your chess set have a hammer?
V:  It’s an upgrade.

There Are No Unicorns in Chess

Frosty the Snow Pawn

Sometimes you hit it out of the park.  Sometimes you strike out.

And sometimes you hit a lazy pop fly that gets caught in the sun and dropped by the shortstop with a Jagermeister hangover.

You’re still on base.  Still in the game.

Barely.
