A Piece Of Trivia

Here’s a piece of trivia for you. The dreidel, that four-sided spinning top children play with, wasn’t always a toy. Long before slots were invent, the Israelites used it to gamble. Instructions: Coins into the pot; spin; read the nun, gimel, hei, or shin then do nothing, take everything, take half, or pay the pot. Sounds a bit confusing, doesn’t it? I’d probably do better guessing which teams use personalized baseball bats.
