Sports Madness

Tired of seeing sweaty brutes kick each other's behinds? For a real change of pace, ESPN2 is covering the 2003 Man vs. Machine Chess match between Gary Kasparov and a program called X3D Fritz. On move 16, Gary spent 20 minutes considering his move. Fritz spent all of one second considering a small move of his rook. The crowd went wild.
