Domino and Chess

Can you cover the chess board with 31 domino pieces, such that only two opposite corners are left uncovered?

The answer is NO. Every domino piece covers exactly one black and one white square on the chess board. Since initially you start with different number of available white and black squares on the chess board, it is impossible to cover it with domino pieces.
