Week in Review

  • The world’s top bridge player received a one-year ban from competition for doping. Bridge is a card game, but since the World Bridge Federation is recognized by the International Olympic Committee, its members must comply with anti-doping rules (March 1).
  • Minnesota police checked on the welfare of a man reportedly standing outside motionless while hugging a pillow, only to discover that it was a cardboard cutout. The cutout was of Mike Lindell, a local millionaire and the CEO of MyPillow (March 2).
  • A women’s bike race in Belgium was delayed because its leader caught up to the men’s field. The men had been given a 10-minute head start. The leading cyclist ended up finishing 74th after the delay (March 3).
  • Farmers in G were in for a giant surprise after discovering a 700-pound alligator lying in a ditch. The gator measures about 13 feet long and is estimated to be 50 years old. Unfortunately, he was found in poor condition and was believed to be dying, so it was decided that he had to be euthanized. (March 4).
