It's interesting to note what kind of life Jake Jacobs (there's no excuse for that kind of name - SHAME) has had by looking at the awards he's won and been associated with winning over the years.

First there was his stint in showbiz as the trainer for world champion weightlifters in the 80s on the TV show "Superstars"and then, after a brief period out of the spotlight, Mr. Jacobs returns to us, this week, as the national UK Scrabble Champion.

The link between the two is clear. It starts out with a serious zen like focus and it ends with a love of strategically interacting with things that can be lifted by hand - be they lettered tiles, barbells or, and I will say it - the human spirit.
