Re: What's your other passion(s)?
Chess. I've been playing chess since I was a kid when my dad taught me the game. I play online pretty much every day and I follow the top-level tournaments and matches. I'm strong for a club player, about candidate master strength, I suppose. But I'm not anywhere near world class and never will be.
Hockey. I'm really a huge sports fan in general and I follow all my local teams, but I'm a hockey and Detroit Red Wings fan, first and foremost. I'm a bit of a stats geek, too, so I follow sports from that angle as well as the competitive/human interest side of things.
Cars. I love cars. I'm from the Motor City. I grew up in an environment where family members designed, built, sold and drove cars. I love 'em.
I have too many passions to list. I wish I could retire. There are so many things I'd do with the time.
