Chess renegade Bobby Fischer (who is in an Ushiku detention centre while he fights a deportation order issued August 24th) has countered claims in Time magazine that as a fugitive he “might not sound like Mr. Right” to any potential love matches.
Alluding to the commonly held assumption that the possession of big feet means that a certain other body part is of equally enlarged proportions, boastful Bobby declared, “I wear size 14 wide shoes. Just keep that in mind when you say I’m not a dreamboat, or not Mr. Right.”
And if that wasn’t enough confirmation that he is more king than pawn, the chess champion recalled a visit he made to a public onsen (bath). A tale that he was at great pains to point out is entirely true.
Miyoko Watai, Fischer’s chess playing fiancé, was waiting in the lobby for her well-hung hero, when she heard two men commenting on an enormous member they had seen on a fellow bather. Then when Fischer himself strutted out, the two men apparently pointed at big boy bobby and said, “Hey, it’s him.” An incident that Fischer claimed was very embarrassing for his fiancé. Although perhaps not as embarrassing as having the tale retold to the assembled media.
