Old school

I went to highschool in the middle of no where. There wasn't much to do at lunch time, so just about every day we'd play Euchre.

We were invited to play in a Euchre tournament this weekend with some friends from our baseball team. I was kind of embarassed, because I associate euchre with old ladies... but let me tell you, it was so much fun!

Good times, great friends, delicious food, crazy-amounts of rum and diets.... AND, the best part?

I got a trophy and $15 for the most 'lone hands!

....and a hangover. But that's ok. All in the name of euchre!

I have never heard of such a game, so I had to google and now feel the need to share part of the description on wikipedia because for some reason this was just too much of a coincidence in the life of Amy loves:

"It is the game responsible for introducing the joker into modern packs; this was invented around 1860 to act as a top trump or best bower (from the German word Bauer, "farmer", denoting also the jack)"

Bauer, Jack Bauer...hmmmm

My parents are obsessed with euchre! I love it too but hardly anyone I know knows how to play.
