Warren Buffett says he's addicted to Bridge. To emphasize just how much, he told CBS News, "You know, if I'm playing bridge and a naked woman walks by, I don't ever see her."
While he makes it sounds like this is a commonplace occurence at his local bridge club, he did add with a laugh, "Don't test me on that!" (I'm relieved that Omaha is not actually a hot-bed of debauched bridge parties. Dealbreaker isn't so sure.)
Over the weekend, CBS News Sunday Morning featured a piece by John Blackstoneon how Warren Buffett and Microsoft's Bill Gates love to play bridge, and what they're doing to get more young people interested in a game that mostly attracts older players. Buffett and Gates often play together online, and sometimes in person.
Along with putting a lot of money into a program to teach bridge to junior-high school kids, Buffett also lends his name to the Warren Buffett Challenge Match, pitting the USA against Europe in the "Ryder Cup of bridge." The USA won the first match in 2006.
