Really, young Matt. I guess you mean before you were following baseball. :) Polo Grounds was used by the New York Giants until 1957.

Brian, depends on whether or not you have monitors at the "remote locations".
IMP Pairs
As I am sure you realize, this does not definitely prove any point about actual imp pairs events where the strategy on many hands might be different than in the matchpoint event.
Remembering My Dad
Definitely. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1vrsg_-dV7Q I saw it (on the tube) in real time. :)

Excellent, Richard. The Declaration of Electronification. Yes, it's really a word.

OK, win club ace, lose spade to west; win return; clear spades, AK of diamonds, 4 rounds of hearts losing 4th to west. West will win 2S, 1H, 1D before having to lead diamond to dummy.
