    Outside of the chuckle****s who were at the Peach Town event, nothing happening in the US. Given the patchwork nature of the restrictions thanks to a glorious absence of leadership from the top, IMO it's for the best.

    If you're a bridge player, you might have noticed that Joe Biden has bid and made a very tricky "NO TRUMP" contract.
    He trudg’d along unknowing what he sought,
    And whistled as he went, for want of thought.

    Holland started up in September, then shut down in October. Since then it's been intra-club youth matches only (which are surprisingly competitive all the same!)

    There's talk of the top level restarting in January, but one condition is that everyone involved (including MOs, coaches, medical staff) have two clear covid tests in the week before match day. Not sure how practical that is.

    We'll see come Jan 6. I trust that the bid will be made, but not without some attempt at chicanery.

    For the record, my preferred game involving bids and trumps is 42, and no, I'm not from Texas.

    My preferred bid at rugby card games is £2 open after a series of £1 blind bids/stakes.

    To cap it all, the Pro 14 is uber-shite so far this season and is on Premier Sport subscription anyway so even the pro game in Scotland is unavailable or just not worth watching.
    Sorry.. on a more positive note.......

    This weekend I'll be...slumped in front of the TV. Grateful (see other thread) that the 6 Nations is still on free-to-air Tv in the UK. For added joy India v England Test Cricket has returned to free-to-air Channel 4 - early mornings from Friday - and the BBC is showing Superbowl LV late on Sunday. I'll be on extra chores before and after this bonanza.
