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?
Nobody? Sweet! I call Leafs trump and I’m going alone.
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.
Now, you could swap the ten for another Ace:
Then you’d have both Bowers, Ace, King and an outside Ace, but it’s more fun to win with five trump cards.
Ye gads, please let the season begin on time. My thought processes are degrading already…
Love it. I’m in.
Gotta see how this works for cribbage.
Seriously- really, really great post, 1967er’s. I’m laughing/smiling still, and not just because I’m a euchre freak. Wondering how you’re going to work anything above 10/Ace in.
Thankee! My favourite bit is actually the right/left Bower. Wonder how many see it. 🙂
Yeah, crib! Deal me a “Jack” Valiquette (with the Leafs), three #5’s from other teams, and cut me a Bill Barilko…perfect hand!
ok – that pretty much kills my crib post unless I make it about pegging…
At leats Mel Queen has the Toronto connection
I call a renege. There was only one Ace (Bailey). Great stuff , man.
