Ping Pong Perspectives #1: I’ll Smash Back A Pong If You Serve Up A Ping!

leave a comment »

OK. The bat-the-ball-back-and-forth-sports—volleyball, tennis, badminton, and ping pong– are good spectator sports for watching the spectators. Heads go from side to side, following the ball back and forth. Once upon a time, along came PONG! Sit in front of a black and white TV… a good set of shifty eyes was all you needed. Line up those rectangle paddles just right so the ball is perpetually in play, and the players/spectator can actually walk away and know the result will always be the same…. blip blip blip. Back and forth. Back and forth. Blip blip blip.  “Ooh, I faked you out” they say.  Geez, I get pixelated just thinking about it…

Not quite the blipping action I’m looking for now ….I’m ready to take on challengers for an old fashioned game of smash mouth ping pong! No, don’t walk away… I’m talking to you! I’m gonna get really retro on ya!
