Hurricanes sac four pawns

At least that's Sun Sentinel sports columnist Ethan Skolnick's view:
In HBO's The Wire, D'Angelo Barksdale, disgusted that two fellow hustlers would play checkers on a chess board, explained how each chess piece corresponds to a role in their "business."

....If Barksdale had been comparing chess to another more legitimate if equally competitive enterprise, he would have had to adjust his analogy slightly.

In major college football, the pawns do often find themselves sacrificed first, which was the fate for four University of Miami assistants after the 40-3 loss to Louisiana State in the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl. Yet, after they go, the king tends to stay the king for only one more year.
