Ping Pong (or is it Table Tennis? – phh – Ping Pong!!)

To quote Weird Al’s song White and Nerdy – “I could sure kick your butt in a game of ping pong!”

Well, maybe not.

But, I am getting better. We had a tournament a few months ago at work and I got schooled. I haven’t played Ping Pong since way back in the day at the Chisholm Rec in the summer, and then, I was good.

So, knowing I am moving soon and I won’t have a lot of time to hang out with some people at work that are good friends, I decided to play ping pong at least once a day.

I usually play Chris and Brad. At first I would maybe win 1 out 3 games, usually the last one (winner takes 2, but we usually play 3 just for kicks). Well today I finally won 2 out of 3. You see, Brad and Chris are like playing every day for months, crazy. Surprised they aren’t going to quit to become professional ping-pong players. All I can say is Chris – Brad smoked you today, and I beat him, so you know what that means. No going downstairs just to volley, this isn’t Nam, there are rules, dude.

Anyways, it’s a good time. I am pretty picky on my paddle, ball, and even the table. We have two tables at work and one is really dark, and there is a space below the net – I hate that table. There are some paddles that are just really bad, the new ones they got are nice. Some balls are heavier, I really don’t like those, or the colored one (like basketballs, etc) – just plain ol white is good 🙂

It is a good time and a fun way to break up the day, for sure. Out in Portland I am going to have to find a place to play. PPPP (Portland Ping Pong Players?)

Here is a video of our latest match:

Ok, yeah, we are crazy I know. I am in the Red 🙂
