By Hook Or By Rook - E-Ticket: By Hook Or By Rook
Last October I blogged a snippet about Chessboxing. I didn't have much to go on, but now ESPN has a big article with video. Inspired by a European comic book, chessboxing alternates 4 minute rounds of chess with 2 minute rounds of boxing. The winner is determined by checkmate, knockout, offical's decision, or taking too much time in the chess rounds.

"...the sport combines elements of the complete man, one who is prepared for any eventuality, not a pure brute, not a hopeless nerd."
