Photo from SI.com’s photo gallery of ping pong champions, sent by loyal reader Tim. Through that page I also discovered the movie Balls of Fury coming out August 31st, a comedy about "the unsanctioned, underground, and unhinged world of extreme Ping-Pong."
Ping-Pong may well be the last great sport that remains free of scandal. MLB and steroids, cycling and doping, NBA and refs, NFL and dog fighting….Ping-Pong and pure passion.
For those keeping score at home, I made it to the finals of the First Annual Ben Casnocha Ping Pong Invitational in Boulder, CO last week.
I plan on improving quite a bit in college. Right now I’m all muscle; I need more finesse. I need more spin in my game.
