Though some may think the drinking game where a ping pong ball is bounced into cups of beer is a hotbed for germs, Sam Pines, of worldpongtour.com, says thats not the case.
Rather than drinking from the same cups that a ball thats been bounced on the floor goes into, theres a cleaner way to play.
Instead, Pines suggests players bounce the ball into cups of water that they dont drink. When they make a shot, they can swig from a separate glass of beer that hasnt been tampered with.
This way, all viruses from the ball are avoided.
Pines figures college kids arent really worried about catching H1N1 through beer pong, since they truly love the sport.
Serious players practice for hours at bars and understand that the sport requires focus, mental awareness, hand-eye coordination, and knowing where to stand.
