I think we are missing some pong updates from you MT.   

BTW, just saw an ad in the paper for a new pong table at Meijer for like $109.............it is a real piece of crap.

I have a ping pong table in my basement and I'm not too bad.  That was an awesome point.
I was at this casino minding my own business, and this guy came up to me and said, "You're gonna have to move, you're blocking a fire exit." As though if there was a fire, I wasn't gonna run. If you're flammible and have legs, you are never blocking a fire exit.  - Mitch Hedberg

Nice! 

So, I talked to my buddy recently who had previously offered me his table.  We were in the old house and couldn't take it then.  Now, I am game for it and he said we could still have it.  Sweet!   Need to talk to him again soon so I can go get it.  He also mentioned the local club that plays like every night and has some really solid players.  I told him I want to check that action out if I can find the time.

Have been racking some serious hours on the table recently, showing a nice improvement in serve.  Learning the pendulum and reverse-pendulum as well as the ghost serve.

Table tennis is on TTC this afternoon from 4:30-6pm EST.  Will be watching on my buddies 52" flatty! :king:
...and of course playing for a couple of hours after!  :grind dance:

This is NOT me in the vid.  I have much more hair.  Actually not much more but some more.  Truthfully not some more but a bit.
Anywhooo here are a couple of the serves that I've been WORKING on.  Not ready for tourney play, but fun to practice

So it is basically both slice serves but I guess the key is all about disguising the serve so the opponent doesn't know what is coming.
