Emerging sport makes, er … a splash …
Yes, Atlantic City, New Jersey was the host of last week’s World Beer Pong Tour Championships. According to reports, a great time was had by one-and-all. It was especially enjoyable for two righteous dudes from Sacramento, CA who split the $25,000 first prize (FYI, $25,000 will buy you a lot of beer). In all, $50,000 in prizes were awarded (which will buy you twice as much beer – check my math … I’ve been playing beer pong since breakfast).
In case you don’t know, beer pong is sport/game/way of life/religion where people stand at opposite ends of the table tossing ping pong balls into their opponent’s 10 beer-filled plastic cups. The rules are simple: When you sink ’em, they drink ’em. Needless to say, it’s popular among fraternity brothers and tailgaters. And bloggers.
