Video of the Day

Back in the 1970's, Dick Schaap befriended a young chess phenom named Bobby Fischer. They went to Knicks games and Schaap became a sort of father figure and one that Fischer was missing. As the 1970's turned into the 1980's, Fischer's behavior became more and more erratic. Soon enough, Schaap, the sports columnist and pundit, began to criticize Fischer's behavior. Clearly, as you can see from the video, Fischer never forgot this criticism but since he could never confront Dick Schaap, he confronted his son Jeremy. He did only months after his father Dick had died.

This is one of the most professional performances I have ever witnessed. Jeremy Schaap, only months after his dad Dick died, has Bobby Fischer rail against his dead dad. Schaap maintains his composure and professionalism throughout even though what Fischer said must have been horribly painful.
