Today’s article in the NY Times titled Ping-Pong as Mind Game (Although a Good Topspin Helps) is dedicated to all my ping pong friends at TechStars. When I was young (say – 10 – 14) and played a serious game of tennis, I was also a dedicated ping pong player. While I’m left handed, I learned to play tennis (and ping pong) right handed. I was once really good and it shows about every ten shots (in both sports.) Every now and then I’ll pick up a ping pong paddle and give someone that plays all the time a run for their money, but I’m too inconsistent a player to do anything other than make my opponent bring their real game to put me away. As a result, I’m going to stick to Gnip Gnop.
