They need to introduce beer to the game, the way Americans did. Its popularity soars when a good shot means your friend has to chug a beer.

I just watched doubles ping-pong on MSNBC and it's about the most ridiculous thing I've ever seen. There's barely enough room for two guys to stand on each side of the table! It's a joke that this is in the Olympics and baseball is getting kicked out.

Ping pong is boring. Pong toss is the wave of the future. The USOC needs to invest in a national pong toss program if we're going to compete with pong toss powers like Vanuatu, Montserrat and Forvik (where pong toss is the national sport).
