Fischer and Schaap

When Bobby Fischer was released from Japanese detention a little more than two years go, a curious story hit the blogs about Fischer and father/son sportswriters named Schaap. I wasn't sure what this was all about until I saw the following video.

Bobby Fischer on Sportscenter [ESPN] (4:55) • Jeremy Schaap goes to Iceland to talk to Bobby Fischer

While researching the background of the story, I found a partial transcript of the video here: BOBBY FISHER APPEARS RAILS AGAINST FORMER 'FATHER'. Note to myself: when searching non-chess sources for 'Fischer', remember to do a second search on 'Fisher'. • Here's more about Jeremy's father Dick Schaap (Wikipedia.org).
