Bobby Fischer Is Lucky Xavier Adibi Opted For Football

Courtesy of the official team page, we're treated to an interview with Xavier Adibi. As the title of this post implied, Bobby Fischer should count his lucky stars:
10. Is there something interesting about you that maybe fans don’t know?

"I like to play chess. I always played chess growing up against my father and my brother."

I think it also goes without saying that there wouldn't have been a delay of nearly twenty (20) years between the match and the fall of the Soviet Union if The X-Factor had tangled with Spassky. Yep, Xavier Adibi would have single-handedly altered the very course of history if he had been born a few decades earlier and pursued a career in chess. No one can convince me otherwise.
