Chess Game

Recovering from shoulder surgery cost me some sleep last night.  This was the 
last game tonight at my chess club and I was pretty tired.

12. Bc4 Bf6 13. Re1 e6 14. Bh6 Qxb2 (I think my opponent was feeling adventurous) 
15. Bxf8 Kxf8 16. Qd2 Qb6 17. Ng5 Kg7 (At this point my opponent was taunting me a 
little about how no sacrifice would work because he had all the squares covered.  I took
this as him daring me to sacrifice, so without giving it much thought I played ...) 
18.Nxf7 Kxf7 19. Rxe6 Kg7 20. Rxf6 Kxf6 21. Qf4+ Kg7 22. Qf7+ Kh6 23. Qf8+ Kg5 24.
h4+ Kxh4 25. Qf4+ 1-0

I didn't really calculate that very much.  I just had a gut feeling it would work.

I see that my official blitz rating is only 1895.
