It certainly took them long enough (Mikhail Tal was world champion in 1960 and died in 1992), but it's better late than never for the Riga City Council, which has decided to name a street in his honor. (HT: Brian Karen.) In addition to being a nice bit of news, this should also offer a rich opportunity for light jokes.
Here are some quick (and lame) offerings to get you started:
(1) Brits could say "Big deal, you should see how we honor GMs Adams and Jones here!"
(2) Sticking to a Tal theme, chess fans can only capture the road signs one at a time.
(3) There are two kinds of way to drive down this street: the correct way and mine.
