Las Vegas Hosts World Series of Beer Pong

Sometimes, beer pong seems destined to replace reading and romance on college campuses. The drinking game is huge at tailgate and frat parties across America.

Believed to have begun at Dartmouth (what decadent college tradition wasn't?), beer pong now has its own world series, held annually in Las Vegas. I know. To think that Vegas would host a sport associated with drinking shocked me too.

In any case, this year's World Series of Beer Pong will take place Jan. 1 to 5 at the Flamingo Hotel and Casino. Teams have a shot at a $50,000 grand prize.
