Hmmm, that's a stumper. I don't know that I've ever seen a blog with animated games. If the host site allows Javascript, you could possibly use the ChessBase JS feature to create them. Otherwise...I got nothin'... :(

I ran USCF rated tournaments for years and canceled just one (which was due to a blizzard).

Mocked you? We don't even remember you. But I'm glad you got over it (whatever "it" was) just the same.
