Mixed up BAM in Philly!
After two days of play in the Freeman Mixed Board-a-Match Teams, the Zeckhauser Team (Gabrielle Sherman of Syosset NY, Joel Wooldridge of Astoria NY, Debbie Rosenberg of Cupertino CA and Richard Zeckhauser of Cambridge MA) was declarered the winners by the slimmest margin of 0.41.
That in it’s self was nail biting enough for those watching from the sidelines. One can only imagine how The Nader Team (Nader Hanner and Joan Eaton both from Toronto ON, Karen Cumpstone of Nanaimo BC and Michael Roche from Victoria BC) who came in second must have felt.
However the roller coaster didn’t end there. Later on in the evening Debbie Rosenberg saw a scoring error on her score card. Did the classy thing by reporting the correction thus dropping them to second and at the same time moved the Nader team to first!
I for one would nominate The Zeckhauser Team Spotsman award of the year.
