    LOL! For years I have drawn comparisons between bridge and golf, both of which I play avidly (albeit not often enough). Here’s my a favorite: “Golf is like bridge–nobody cares how good or how bad you play, just as long as you play FAST!”

      I’m not a bridge player, though I have thought I might try. I had an aunt who was a whiz at it and she was 91!!! Keeps your mind sharp for sure.
