This Sunday’s New York Times was fascinating to us on three levels:
1. The Gray Lady was supposed to report on the whole Judy Miller ordeal now that the Special Prosecutor has released her to do so;
2. It included an 80-page advertorial on fine watches that was like soft-core pornography to any amateur watch collector;
3. The front page — yes, the FRONT PAGE — included a story on the much-anticipated World Series of Beer Pong!
From January 2nd-6th, a couple thousand functioning and non-functioning alcoholics will make their way to the Oasis Resort & Casino in Mesquite, Nevada for the first annual World Series of Beer Pong. Our only question is: Why Mesquite? Are we to assume this is something even Las Vegas found too objectionable?
The organizers expect over 2,000 entrants, 120 simultaneous tables of beer pong in use over the 3 day event, and a $10,000 prize to the winner. Knowing many beer pong players like we do, something tells us they won’t be doing it for the money. There’s just something about being crowned the Best Beer Pong Player in the World that speaks for itself.
There are still two weeks to sign up. May the force be with you.
