College amateurism is a thing of the past -- to continue the activities you once pursued so lazily, you have to approach them with an adult's sense of purpose and professionalism. So, join the Southern California Beer Pong League
Started by two SoCal natives who honed their skills at Washington and Lee and Valparaiso, the BPL has taken the rules and regs from universities/community colleges across America and distilled them into a Unified Theory of Pong. All aspects are codified, from setup (doubles play only on 8' x 2' tables; cups arranged in "tight triangle formation"), to taunting (allowed behind the table's edge), to discomfortingly phrased defensive maneuvers ("Any ball that is blown or fingered out of a cup, will count as a hit on that cup..."). During league play, teams must compete in four of the seven weekly tournaments to qualify for the finals, and player substitutions are allowed -- for a ringer, call the SAE house and ask for "Gonzo", who is very good.
Full Fall League details are being worked out, but to get a taste, hit the open-to-all Sep 29 double-elimination at the Good Hurt, where winners'll take home a $400 grand prize -- which would've seemed like a fortune, back when all you had to worry about was buying beer.
