Re: Chess Team names
I like this: "I Am Not a Rook"
only I would change it to, "I Am Not a Rook... I'm a Castle"

"I Am Not a Rook" refers to Nixon's "I am Not a Crook" so I don't understand how your addition to the team name goes along the same lines.

Re: Chess Team names
A good chess team name would be 'Gravediggers: Searching for Bobby Fischer'.

Re: Chess Team names

AHhh, Ok.
well, it has to do with a TV commercial that played not too long ago.
It was a man dressed as a hot dog angrily proclaiming, "I am NOT a weiner,,,,, I'm a frank"
or something like that. it's been a while, but it was a hoot

Re: Chess Team names
.. Two already registered handles are: "WMDee" {as in, weapons of mass destruction}, and "AuralSects."
Other hypothetical ones, are; as per the 'no space inbetween' rule, are:

"CondiRicesGambit"; a take-off, of chess,' "Rice Gambit"
"Bushwacked," and "Kill....{I can't say the word, lest the FBI comes after me} ..The parenthetical statement, is also a part of the long handle.
"WhosFischer?," and "What-Vietnam-War?"; for the generations 'Y' & 'Z,' who seem to be clueless about Any number of things!; esp. the 'Zees'!
"MostlyUncredentialed"; In celebration of, 'Obama's' meteoric-like rise, to the presidential candidacy.
"TheEmptySuit," {An expression inspired by worst-case-scenarios, of Either candidate; if McCain were to tangibly, mentally-age, even more!?; and if Obama were to become, Even More deliberative, halting, and pre-varicating, in his answers to posed questions!?}.
"No-Longer-Stuck-On-Jodie-Foster" {This is specifically reserved for John Hinkley.. if he ever gets his full freedom, and takes up chess; better yet, he {Hinkley} should always be required to wear this in public, as a monogrammed 'T-shirt' or sweatshirt!
"Darkhorse," and "Out-of-The-Blue"; Inspired by the two expressions we'll probably be hearing a lot of, should either McCain or Obama, be forced to 'bow-out' for whatever health, or even further scandal-related reasons, that may yet surface{!?}
And lastly, the two handles to simultaneously, be Most Feared, and-or pitied!: "NimzoZugzwang," and his possible 'offspring': "NimzoZugzwangsDNA."
