Card Players Are Now Athletes

If you had any doubt the world is going crazy, consider this: They now drug-test professional card players. Geir Helgemos (I'm sure you've heard of him), the world bridge champion, has been banned from the game a year after he tested positive for testosterone. The game of bridge--are you ready for this?--is now considered a sport! (My mother, who couldn't drive a golf bar farther than 40 yards, was an avid bridge player. All those years I had no idea she was an athlete.) How in the hell, you might ask, does testosterone make one a better bridge player? Does this mean that men are better at the sport than women? Good heavens.
