Join Bridge Winners
History: A handful of aces (more Sports Illustrated)

Less on the funny anecdote side, the story of one man's (Ira Corn Jr., that is) crusade to return the Bermuda Bowl to the US.

There's some interesting speculation about the commercial possibilities of the venture in setting up a new group of bridge celebrities that would make big money out of the commercial side of bridge.
