Want Some Real Big Game Excitement? How About Chico Marx Playing Contract Bridge?

So yesterday I predicted that no matter the outcome of the Big Bowl Game, there was no way it would match up to the football game that takes place at the end of the Marx Brothers’ movie Horse Feathers. Of course, as it turns out, it actually was almost as exciting as watching Chico Marx playing Contract Bridge.

Yeah, apparently this was a Thing back in the late 50s and early 60s (the show this is taken from, Championship Bridge with Charles Goren, ran on ABC from 1959 to 1964). Of course, it wasn’t that long ago that watching people play poker on television was a huge fad, so who are we to judge, right?

And, who knows? Maybe for Bridge aficinados this really is an exciting game. Yeah, somehow I doubt it.
