The Miltonian Institute of Chess was formed one Saturday afternoon during a Blitz game between yours truly and Carey Milton approximately 4 years ago. Approximately 4 weeks ago, the founder of the institute was found in a compromised position facing a life threatening situation. I am writing this note out of genuine concern and love for the Miltmeister (this is a title given only to a worthy handful) Carey Milton himself. The chess club is very happy to have you still "Milting" around with us. But please do not take this for granted. Take a little better care of yourself. Those energy drinks that I avidly advised against are not for you. Besides, you don't need them. It is your creativity that creates thunderstorms at the board. You are one of the most entertaining players I have ever met. Little more mild consistant exercise and a healthier diet, and we will indeed see the original Miltmeister reach 2200 rating and make us all very proud and happy. I admire your relentless energy and enthusiasm for the beloved game. I admire the fact the win lose or draw we can count on you to be there for the next game as though nothing ever happened. I am greatful to our creator for He allowed you to continue to be here. Milt Milt Milt Miltonian!!!!!!!!!!!!
James, your words reflect many chess player's sediments and concerns. Carey is an inspiration to all of us! Mario AmodeoReplyDelete
