Chess, Football, and Hockey

At the training camp of the New England Patriots, running back Laurence Maroney compared chess and football in the following way: "Chess can help with football because the one thing about chess, you’re not moving for right now, you’re moving to set up moves later on."

This reminds me of a quote by the great hockey player Wayne Gretzky: "I skate to where the puck is going to be."
