Video: Anna Kournikova Plays Beer Pong

Posted by Dave On June - 23 - 2011

Honestly, if there was a video of Anna Kournikova changing a baby’s diaper, I would watch it. Anna Kournikova playing beer pong? Yes Sir! Anna Kournikova playing beer pong in a tiny black cocktail dress? Has someone been reading my diary?

This may have happened back in 2009 but for many of you I am sure that is a minor detail you are willing to overlook. Here she plays beer pong against Jimmy Fallon.

Mid-Week Eye Candy Wrapper #105: Kate Upton Edition

Posted by Dave On February - 17 - 2011

Depending on how old you are will determine how fondly you hold the opinion of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition. For those that are older, the SI Swimsuit Edition was something that was rare and coveted because of its scarcity. The Swimsuit Edition was coming out on news stands well before the days of Maxim Magazine where today, scantily clad women are commonplace. Before the days of the Victoria’s Secret catalog, you needed to pick up the SI Swimsuit Edition for that one week. If you missed it, you had to wait a whole year. And Sports Illustrated launched the modeling careers of many young ladies whom we all refer to as “Super Models” today. Household names like Cindy Crawford, Christie Brinkley, Rachel Hunter, Kathy Ireland, Heidi Klum, Elle Macpherson, Rebecca Romijn, Cheryl Tiegs and Tyra Banks among others all became household names because of their appearance in the magazine.

In honor of another Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Edition hitting people’s mailboxes this week, we pay homage to one of the rookies to the Swimsuit Edition, Kate Upton. We’re betting you will be seeing a lot more of her in the next few years. Need more Kate Upton? Click HERE for her complete photo gallery from SI. Links follow the eye candy:

Even More Options with Pong 360 Beer Pong Tables

Posted by Dave On October - 22 - 2009

Whether the tailgating nation (or the NFL) want to admit it, beer pong is exploding in popularity across the tailgating lots of America. So why not embrace the fact that beer pong is here to stay by offering those tailgaters more options on the types of playing surfaces they can bring to a tailgate party? That is why we have chosen to offer our readers the opportunity to purchase Pong 360 beer pong tables directly from our online tailgating store, Shop.TailgatingIdeas.com. Take a look at the different styles you can choose from. (Click on images to view larger size)

Pong 360 Beer Pong Tables was originally founded by a group of like-minded players with a passion for the sport of beer pong. After surveying what other beer pong table manufacturers had to offer in the way of table designs, they decided to create their own. As you can see from the images above, these are all 8′ x 2′ regular competition tables with a number of designs and themes to choose from. You can select from Super 8-Ball, Nightmare, Greens, Vixens, Beer Pong League or Galaxy themed tables. Aside from the unique designs, Pong 360 beer pong tables include a beer pong ball holder that holds six regulation sized balls underneath the table. Now you don’t have to worry about bringing your beer pong balls separately and accidentally forgetting them. Also, the sturdy hard plastic handles (unlike other beer pong tables which have canvas or cloth handles) make it easy to hold and carry when it is folded for transport.

Other features of Pong 360 beer pong tables includes an integrated rack design on the back of the table which allows you to play six or 10 cup games with a perfect rack setup every time. Even though the table weighs approximately 23 pounds, the aluminum used to construct it allows for a sturdy surface and is great for bouncers, if that is part of your game. The top surface of the Pong 360 beer pong table includes a melamine coating for easy clean up from all kinds of alcoholic or non-alcoholic liquids. And because you want to take it tailgating, it folds up into a compact 2′ x 2′ briefcase for ultimate portability. Also, you can use it as a table for flip cup or to set up your tailgate buffet food. Specs include:

Dimensions Open
• Length: 8′
• Width” 2′
• Height: 27.5”

Dimensions Closed
• Length: 2′
• Width: 5.5″
• Height: 2′

• 23 lbs.

Pong 360 also offers a 7′ table option which comes in the Galaxy color scheme. This table offers the same great features like strong plastic handles, beer pong ball holder, melamine coating, lightweight aluminum construction and the six to 10 cup racking design. The only major difference is that it is a foot shorter, about a pound lighter and folds in half instead of quarters like the 8′ tables from Pong 360. This shorter table, although not regulation length, might be a better option for tailgaters who are pressed for space in their tailgating vehicles.

You can buy Pong 360 beer pong tables directly from Shop.TailgatingIdeas.com for $129.99 + $20 flat rate shipping. That’s a total of $149.99 for those of you who struggled in math class or where too busy staring at the Homecoming Queen the day they taught simple addition. Choose your table design and you can be playing beer pong at your next tailgate party in no time. Click HERE to buy a Pong 360 beer pong table now.

With little to go on in the way of explanation or description from YouTube, this looks to be a bastardized game of beer pong combined with Flip Cup. I’ve watched it a few times while focusing on the girl team on the far end (because they won) and I still can not figure out the rules or the goal of the game. Maybe you can? If you do, please post your interpretation of the rules in a comment below.

The Shot Caller Keeps The Time While You Do The Shots

Posted by Dave On September - 4 - 2009

Although beer pong and flip cup seem to dominate the tailgating binge drinking landscape, there are a few hardcore tailgaters that will play Power Hour or Century Club. Both of these drinking games involve drinking a 1 oz shot of beer every 60 seconds. (Power hour is 60 shots in an hour and Century Club is 100 shots in 100 minutes.) Sounds simple until you try it.

The problem with these games is you have to have some sort of a “time keeper”. The time keeper has to constantly keep an eye on the clock and has to shout out “DRINK” or blow a whistle or alert everyone of their drinking responsibilities every 60 seconds. Kind of a hassle. But now there comes the Shot Caller; a clock that counts down at 60 second intervals with a loud alert system.

The Shot Caller

It comes complete with Red, Yellow and Green LED lights to let you know how far away you are from taking your next shot. The digital numbers on the top count down much like the shot clock in a basketball game. It has the option of being set for 60 or 100 minutes. As an added bonus, the Shot Caller comes equipped with four shot glasses just in case you don’t have any. (Right, like that’s the one thing your place is missing…)

The Shot Caller will run you less than 10 bucks and if you order two you get free shipping. Get more info from their official website TheShotCaller.com
