Backgammon's good name sullied by whores and infected deviants.

I'm doing a little "browsing" as the kids call it, and come across the provactive title on MSN.com: "Romantic gifts: Share your love for each other this season and make a little magic of your own. There's more than one way to heat up your holiday."
When you click on it, it takes you to all sorts of sordid devices: Kama Sutra Weekender, The Passion Game for Two, Dirty Darts, Strip Chocolate Checkers for Lovers (I kid you not),
But to get there you see this:!
As if the fine ancient game of backgammon - the very thing that might have finally united the muslim world and the sane world - would be sullied in such a way.

Backgammon is not "naughty" as the Philistines at MSN.com, but a brutal game to be played for pride, resulting in the complete humiliation and financial ruin of the other.
