I had been in America for six month before i got to play the fine game of Beer Pong. And to tell the truth it s not fine at all – it s pretty disgusting The game is about getting a ping ping ball in your opponents cups. The cups are filled with beer so when someone actually hits a cup the opponent has to drink that cup. Needless to say the ball goes on the floor pretty often. To clean the ball each team has a cup with water where the ball is washed before each play.
It is interesting how beer games are different from Denmark to USA over here it takes up a lot of space playing games like flip cup or beer pong – in Denmark is more often dice or cards. The whole house party thing (which is huge in a collegetown like Ann Arbor) is completely unknown in Denmark. If we have a big party it s usually by invitation or it s a bigger party arranged by a sports club or similar. In Denmark you only get kegs to big parties and then you usually get a decent tab and a cooling system along with it.
– The reason for this, I m pretty sure, is because of the alcohol culture. In Denmark you can buy alcohol in stores from you are 16 over here you have to be 21, five years later – oh and it is (as far as i ve been told) even illeagal to consume alcohol if you are not under 21
Anyways here is what I shot that day.
