Did you feel I was hinting 64 is ancient? My apologies then. And if I 'm lucky enough to ever reach that age, I guess I'll be there sooner than I would wish to :-) I often read that 65 was generally the moment where one's bridge capabilities starts ...

No more co-domination in football. 2006 (Germany) 4 European semi-finalists Italy wins 2010 (South Africa) 3 European semi-finalists Spain wins 2014 (Brazil) 2 European semi-finalists Germany wins 2018 (Russia) 4 European semi-finalists France wins Chess is another story. China and India will probably crush the field in the mid/long ...
