Given the likelihood of no NHL – euchre, anyone?

With the current lack of urgency on behalf of the various parties entrusted with starting the NHL season on time, there will be time to be spent on other pursuits.  I don’t really know basketball all that well, the Premier League is in an unfortunate time zone and the CFL is done early, so how about some cards?

*shuffles*

*deals*

Nobody?  Sweet!  I call Leafs trump and I’m going alone.

Right Bower

1968-69 OPC

Left Bower

1964-65 Topps

Ace

1933-34 OPC

King

1933-34 Ice Kings

Ten

1970-71 OPC

Four points, boys!  Rack ‘em up!

Now, I grant the Bower-Bower-Ace-King-Queen is the better hand, but the only Queen I can think of is this one and it’s off-suit, which is worse than the ten.  That would take a four-point hand and make it a one-point hand.

1971 OPC

Now, you could swap the ten for another Ace:

Garnet was also known as “Ace.” I didn’t scan mine because I don’t think that far ahead. Hence I found this one.

Then you’d have both Bowers, Ace, King and an outside Ace, but it’s more fun to win with five trump cards.

*crickets*

Ye gads, please let the season begin on time.  My thought processes are degrading already…
