And Now for Something Completely Different: Jessica!

Hello Bridge Ladies and Fellows, and other assorted Bridge-related people!

My name is Jessica, and as of today (roughly), I’m going to be MPP’s new Marketing and Various Small Tasks Intern! This is my first foray into the Real Publishing World, and I’m very excited to be starting that experience at Master Point.

Currently, I know three things about Bridge:

1) It’s kinda like Euchre’s Granddaddy, if your granddaddy had a handlebar moustache, a fine suit and hat, and ran rum during Prohibition but now lives in a nice big house where your grandma cooks dinner for the family on Sunday. What I’m saying is he’s older, wiser, and much savvier.

2) You can learn about Bridge over nachos at Sneaky Dee’s (as I attempted to), or from Linda and Barbara Seagram’s book Beginning Bridge (which I am going to start doing after I finish this post).

3) Bridge players are really cool people (on average).

While I’m still a newcomer to the world of Bridge, I would like to personally assure each and every one of you that I am no stranger to blogging, or thought-provoking bursts of stunning knowledge and insight. Hopefully, I will be able to bring some of those observations to my time here at MPP, and maybe provide some upsight, (or at the very least entertainment in my misinterpretations) as I begin navigating the world of Bridge.

I am not sure I totally follow the analogy to prohibition but welcome aboard!

Welcome to MPP Jessica, you have already helped me and I have just started my deluge of technical support requests.

I tell my non-bridge friends that euchre is to bridge – like checkers is to chess. Same playing tools, but a rather heightened level of complexity.

If you want to learn this game, read, read, read then play, play, play.

Then, more of the same.

It is a fabulous game and we welcome you into the communitry of bridge. Sounds like your starting in a good place to learn. To show my support for your prohibition cause (I don’t quite see the analogy either) I will raise a glass of a preferred Pinot Grigio in welcoming you to the fraternity of bridge.



And bridge players are not “really cool” on average. MPP is no doubt an exception to the is rule but the rest of the bridge community might be described with many adjectives, none of them “cool”. Now bloggers on the other hand…….
