Few athletes have what it takes to make it to the top. Getting there requires persistence, will-power and above allpractice. That's why, here at OC Weekly, we writers have a leg up on the competition in one sportthe sport of the gods: Beer Pong. For those of you who haven't been enlightened on the magic that is beer pong, just think of that carnival game where you toss a ball into a fish bowl. Only instead of winning a lame goldfish, you get wasted. Well, a recent study done by Britain's Department of Health found that people who work in publishing are the biggest professional drunks of them all (yay, science!) and we're here to see if you have what it takes to stand up to the masters. Can you throw a ping-pong ball into a plastic cup through beer goggles? Or are you doomed to throw up all over the table? We'll see this Sunday, and every Sunday, at Bar Louie's evening of Beer Pong in the lovely city of Anaheim (Yes, the very same Bar Louie of "Rock the Tot" tater tot eat-off fame). And show up with some fresh balls, will ya? Unless you're alright with drinking beer that's been infected with ball-hand residue. Trust us, you aren't alright with that.
Sundays, 9 p.m.; Sun., July 5, 9 p.m., 2009
