excuse the bad photo, but, you know, evidence
Hey! I know this guy! I don't know him know him, but I watched him ping pong once. And as he walked by me he said something to the effect of "I don't know why I'm leaving with all of these beautiful women in here...." Not that I'm implying that he was talking about me; I was carrying a three-month old and there were plenty of beautiful and more available looking ladies in my vicinity, if none happened to be in his age bracket.
Anyway, the guy is bona fide. The article alludes to that, though the video doesn't do him justice.
This all reminds me: I'd written on a list somewhere that I want to get good at ping pong this year but I'm afraid that I'm not making much headway. I've made this sort of pledge before--with ping pong and darts, among other things. Upon reflection, I'm not sure that this is a realizable goal. It happens that I have pretty lousy hand-eye coordination. Also, I haven't settled on whether I'm left- or right-handed for these types of things. That's how bad I am.
