in the last episode of the programme House MD is playing some kid who opens with 1. f4. and House says 'ah, Bird's opening, the sign of passivity' and plays 1. ... c5 to whit the kid says 'ah, the sicilian defence, the sign of a idiot'. The game seems to go 2. Nf3 d5.
Surely this can't rightly be called a sicilian, even through later transposition, can it? Strange error, i thought Hugh Laurie played the game. Also, Bird's hardly seems passive. And if sicilian is an idiot's response, well, all the world are fools.
