Actually, they are just wild UTD chess fans. In the middle (with the orange shirt is Igor Schneider, brother of IM Dmitry Schneider who is competing in the SPICE Cup at this moment). This picture was sent to me by Mr. Jim Stallings of UTD. This was taken at the UTD vs. University of Belgrade Internet match. UTD won 11-5! The average team rating on the 16 boards were respectively UTD (2312.37) and UB (2311.56)!
