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…
