Zia Mahmood, who will be representing the USA for the first time in the Bermuda Bowl in Tunisia, tells this amusing story:

A fellow bridge player introduced Zia to a Minister of the Cloth in this way:

«This is Mr. Mahmood. All he does in life is play bridge, golf and pursue the ladies.»

The Minister shook his head in disbelief. «That is your whole life?» he asked Zia.

«It’s even worse than that,» replied Zia.

«How is this possible?» queried the Minister in amazement.

«I love every minute of it, » replied Zia.
