Ping,

Is it a real sport?

How can you injure yourself playing it if you have an IQ over 15?

Do balls matter?

It's such a mysterious phenomenon.

"Do balls matter?"

They complete the package.

It depends on what you define as sport, I suppose.

I recall some sports writer saying that bicycle racing a la Lance Armstrong was not a sport. Something about a sport having to involve a ball of some kind. What a dork.

Ping pong is fun, I like to play it, I don't care how it's defined.

Pong,

There was a guy who injured himself playing; he tore some muscle or other.

Stranger things have happened; I hear there are professional video gamers.

Ping Pong, table tennis, like tennis without the running, one needs the abilities of a Forrest Gump to excel. Or should I say XL?

Ping,

I also hear some gamers injure themselves?

Would you pay to watch someone play?

Hey, wait a minute!

::looks at diagram::

That pat was 2 inches, too high. That was no friendly "way to go" pat on the butt, that was just a "I get to touch your butt" kind! Bad fallow!

I'm just looking for a bit of attention, and you all seem to have so much time on your hands.

The old school knows what I’m talking about, a momentary pixel monger with no definite purpose.

To seek and disturb, if I were to flatter myself.

T_smith,

The only confusion that results from my posts is the ... well... the lack of capacity to address.

Pong,

I'll look into, I promise you, kind sir. But i'd like to keep it snappy, those fast moving balls give me a headache.

How can the ball bounce when there is no wall for the ball to bounce off of?

Ping Pong,
Watch the movie and you'll know.

It is in fact possible to injure yourself playing or preparing to play...quite easy in fact.
It is a sport, and a friggin intense one.

Golf on the other hand....goodness...they call that a sport? I love playing it...but...a sport? You get off the cart hit a ball, get back on the cart to get drive to the cart, have your club HANDED TO YOU to hit the ball a little further....that's not a sport!

Is that enough attention?
