This Dude Takes Beer Pong Much More Seriously Than Any of Your Frat Bros Ever Did

There's a decent chance I'm better than you at beer pong. No, that’s not me bragging -- the contrary, in fact. I’m probably better than you because I was an undergrad for an extra three years, giving me much more practice than the average college student. This is not something I’m necessarily proud of, but hey, at least I took some sort of skill away from college. (Note: My extra practice may be rendered useless if you continued to play beer pong after college, in which case, how is unemployment treating you?) ↵

↵You know who else is better than you at beer pong? Philadelphia-area resident Joseph B. Jimenez. But not because he’s actually a more skilled player than you, but because if you disagree with him over beer pong, he will shoot you: ↵

↵
↵⇥Joseph B. Jimenez, 24, was charged with first-degree murder for allegedly fatally shooting his opponent, Scott Riley, 25, following a game of beer pong at a Bridgeport home Friday night. […] ↵⇥

↵⇥According to court documents, Jimenez claimed that Riley had said, "Shoot me! Shoot me! You guys ain't got the b----!" ↵⇥

↵⇥

↵⇥Jimenez pulled a .40-caliber Taurus handgun from his waistband and shot Riley once in the neck, police said. ↵⇥

↵
↵The murder reportedly stemmed from an argument between the two about beer pong rules (rebuttals or elbow rule ... rebuttals or elbow rule ... I’m going with elbow rule), which has happened at just about every single party I’ve ever been to where beer pong was being played. Minus the murder part. Usually it just ends with two bros arguing over whose rules are more “whack” followed by a fist-pound and make-up.↵
