Laura Rigsby English 1101/IZ Nan LoBue November 20, 2007 Leave It To College Kids… The cups stand before me, icy beer filling each one halfway. I grasp the slick orange ball carefully, as to not drop it into my own cup. Hand-eye coordination is key and rare three games deep. Focusing in on my opponents “beeramid,” I aim for the center. Time briefly slows down as the ball sails through the air in a perfect arc. It bounces off the outer rim, and sinks the middle hole. The glare from across the table is priceless. I high five my teammate hoping he can follow suit. Leave it to college students to take such a tame game as ping-pong and turn it into such a thrilling, and sometimes dangerous, drinking game. The exact origin of beer pong is unknown, but the game itself has spread across college campuses like wild fire. The story, as I was told, was that a Sigma Nu created the game in the early eighties after all other drinking games started to get old. This is just one of the many stories to take credit for the most exciting game since quarters. To some people, beer pong is not just a game, but is a serious competition.
