about me

I am a retired teacher.  By night, (bridge) blogger, writer, editor, director, occasional teacher and social player. 

I wrote Collateral Damage, the sordid story and cold case of a stolen National title. You can see it and other essays here;

I and a few others fail to grasp why the ACBL cannot hear and appeal that was filed in 1979 at the event in question. By that abdication, they have conspired to deny the title to the rightful winners and thereby endorsed self-confessed and convicted cheaters. 

Have had the joy of discussing the integrity of our game with many of our elite. I thank them for their encouragement and support. 

I have a fabulous son with the greatest name in Negro League history. You can figure that out. 

I reside in suburban Toronto, happy in love and life. New spouse, two new sons, alas, no card players, yet.

Anyone is invited to contact me at dancesavecwords@gmail.com. 

Love the MSC. Feel TBW & our game can always use more humour. 

Love Kantar, Philip and Robert King, Mollo, the Abbot and Right Through the Pack. 

Miss Fred.

Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
My frustration with the ACBL reaches at an all time high
Perhaps the BoD could appoint (voluntary/unpaid?) ombudsman who could adjudicate like disputes. From the cheap seats, it seems the ACBL could use all the positive PR possible and do the right thing. A silly rule and an obvious irritant to at least one member. I would rattle the food ...
Are you kidding me?
The rules do appear silly, but - especially w/o asking, perhaps your partner should not be interfering in a forcing auction with marginal values. If it was indeed "waiting", your partner still rated to go for at least a toll-free number. Silence, sometimes, is golden. C
Puzzled by Evening Swiss Ruling in San Francisco
All of us baseball fans understand e.g Chuck Knoblach E5. Since the E assignments only go (perforce) to nine, I propose ER's "director error" be hereby classified as E10. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dnJFklbt0es Casey

Bad Claim Case from San Francisco
"The panel was also wrong, in my opinion, to rule that this not an Appeal without Merit." (M.R.) What is the threshold to determine is an appeal is frivolous or "without merit"? Certainly everyone filing an appeal feels justified in asking for a review. How do we separate the ...

Always amenable to a refreshing beverage. Merci. C
There's a beer in your future
That Canadian beer is so tempting, can't see the froth for the foam. C
What's the position, post-Boye Revelations?
"Not a very impressive feat." Perhaps that says it all. Indifference. Denial. Obfuscate. Hoping Boye et. al. will fade away. Not this time. C
SiVY: A Story of Youth Bridge Success - Part 1
