The HOF I refer to is the Backgammon Hall Of Fame. Voters might make mockery of my title by nominating 1974 World Champion Claude Beer, but I'll chance it. There has been talk of a Hall Of Fame for years, but in this year it will become reality. Chiva Tafazzoli has announced that he will sponsor it. I don't know anything about it: who will vote, how candidates will be nominated, etc. Two suggestions: first, other sports with Halls Of Fame admit not only athletes but those who contributed in other ways: team owners, coaches, etc; for at least one Hall, the one for Rock and Roll, eligibility begins twenty-five years after the nominee's career began. Having made those two general suggestions, I'll make some specific ones, naming a slate of candidates to begin filling the Hall.
