OK, I admit it -- I've become slightly obsessed with the game of Bingo. I haven't played it since 2nd grade; I just enjoy watching the game as a spectator. I'm simply a fan who cheers from the sidelines of the Bingo hall.

I'm amazed at how many different types of Bingo games exist out there, and I'm fascinated by the people who play them. I recently wrote a story about Bingo for the paper, and I while I was reporting, I made this video:

If you want to find a bingo game in your 'hood, check out the Massachusetts Lottery Commission webpage...they keep an updated list of every bingo hall in the state.

Here are some more random Bingo links, for your enjoyment:
