I used to believe that Euler could draw circles around anyone but after some investigation I now believe that Sattouf could draw anything around anyone (and write about it beautifully as well).
And today we have a battle of two GOATs, with Fischer seeded fourth and Armstrong unseeded. I have a horrible feeling that either one would come off as a whiny victim, with Bobby complaining about how the Russians conspired against him, and Armstrong complaining about all those damn reporters. But, hey, they’re both GOATs, so there’s that!
Again, the full bracket is here, and here are the rules:
We’re trying to pick the ultimate seminar speaker. I’m not asking for the most popular speaker, or the most relevant, or the best speaker, or the deepest, or even the coolest, but rather some combination of the above.
I’ll decide each day’s winner not based on a popular vote but based on the strength and amusingness of the arguments given by advocates on both sides. So give it your best!
