The Legend of Boxcar Bob and Aces Andy
The two sat down for some backgammon one sunny summer day in 1976. Boxcar Bob had but one checker to bear off when Aces Andy, who had a lone checker on Boxcar Bob's one point, rolled aces and hit that checker on the two point playing 24-23*-21. Now, Aces Andy had just begun to crunch his board, holding 5 points with a lone checker on his 6 point. There was a crack of thunder, a lightening bolt, and the sky grew bright. Boxcar Bob dropped the dice into the baffle box, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h5y7lzquNhQ and out came double sixes, hitting the blot on Aces Andy's 6 point and running home to his one point. Aces Andy dropped the same dice into the same baffle box, and out came aces, again, hitting Boxcar Bob's blot, playing bar 24, 21-18. Boxcar Bob, again rolling double sixes, hit both of Aces Andy's blots.....
( pause in the story for suspenseful effect )
