Beer Pong Nation

Recently, I learned in a gathering a new term - "Beer Pong". According to Wikipedia,
Beer Pong, also known as Beirut, is a drinking game in which players throw a ping-pong ball across a table with the intent of landing the ball in a cup of beer/water on the other end. The game typically consists of two two-to-four-player teams and multiple cups set up on each side set up in triangle formation. There are no official rules, so rules may vary widely, though usually there are six or ten plastic cups arranged in a triangle on each side.

The order of play varies—both players on one team shoot followed by both players on the other team, or players on opposite teams can alternate back and forth.


Beer pong tournaments are held in the United States at the local, regional, and national levels.


The Wall Street Journal, Time and other media outlets have reported on the increase in businesses selling beer pong paraphernalia, such as tables, mats, cups, or clothes

I am no moralist and enjoy a mug of beer or a glass of wine time to time.  But the cheers Beer Pong game is receiving is incomprehensible, because it is nothing but brain decimating, manner destroying activity.

When the US is heading to be a Beer Pong nation, it is high time to cede the claim to a great nation forever.
