Beer Pong Safe From Swine Flu

NEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Swine flu is spreading, but beer pong remains safe.

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 that’s not the case.

Rather than drinking from the same cups that a ball that’s been bounced on the floor goes into, there’s a cleaner way to play.

Instead, Pines suggests players bounce the ball into cups of water that they don’t drink. When they make a shot, they can swig from a separate glass of beer that hasn’t been tampered with.

This way, all viruses from the ball are avoided.

Pines figures college kids aren’t 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.”
