World Series of Beer Pong. Sweet!

beer-pongHey there bros and bro-ettes, Chad here with some exciting news. It looks like beer pong, a most treasured passtime of many college students – myself included, is finally being recognized as a legitimate sport! A couple of weeks ago, Las Vegas hosted the World Series of Beer Pong, which was even reported by ESPN Magazine!  Here’s what my boy Rick Reilly has to say about it:

But the beer pong I play is nothing like the kind in the World Series of Beer Pong, which I covered recently at the Flamingo Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas. That’s where North America’s 414 best pong teams competed for the $50,000 first prize. Second prize: bubkes. Gulp.

You have never seen such large people throw such tiny objects into such small receptacles with such hair-raising frequency. The best teams hit about 70% of their shots on the eight-foot tables. That’s like pitching a quarter into a parking meter slot seven times out of 10.

This is great news for all of us ‘beer pong pros’! Perhaps Penn State can assemble a couple of teams to send to next year’s World Series! Of course, I would be the star player, but that’s a given. Maybe this can be our chance to move up and become the nation’s number one party school! This is very exciting.

Anyone wanna try out to be my partner? I’ll only take the very best. Training starts immediately. Let me know. Peace out, broskis.
