If you’ve ever watched MTV’s Cribs, maybe you saw some rock star’s regulation basketball court, or a pool the size of a small house with a waterfall, and thought, “I want that someday.” For me it would be something like this yard-sized chess set — this style I can get behind.
If you think about it, the giant chess set would be tons less pathetic when you get older than seeing a sixty-year-old rock star trying not to break his hip on a basketball court while proving he’s not too old to stuff it.
Of course, when your wife checkmates you in thirty moves it’s visible from space, and that might be a trifle embarrassing. But hey — it also gives you more incentive to work on your game.
