A New Meaning to Well Balanced

Q-ster brought home a flyer from kindergarten that advertised “Classic Math School’s Summer Math Camp.”

It touts a “well balanced summer” for your child. The mornings are full of academics, and the afternoon features sports like, uh “Chess.”

Ok, to be fair, swimming and tennis were listed too, but it was too funny to see chess regarded as a sports activity at a math camp. There should totally be a Lego session too.

Now I'm wondering if there is a chess Wii game.

I was reminded of this post when I heard about "chess boxing" on the radio this afternoon.
The name made me imagine a human chess game, where you dress up like a pawn or rook or whatever, and box for dominance on the chessboard square, but no.... apparently you just alternate rounds of chess with rounds of boxing. Still, an odd combo!

That is totally a "Cupertino" thing!

Let's not forget about physics. How could a summer be well-balanced without physics?
