What Ever Happened To Pong?

Nothing happened to Pong. It's still here, alive and well in Korea. I was able to see an international ping-pong tournament this weekend. It was part of the 2010 International Firefighters Tournament which had dozens of events ranging from arm wrestling to dragon boat racing. The only one I was successfully able to see was the fire truck parallel parking event (which was incredibly boring but hilarious) and the ping pong. The event was very ill attended, but one spectator came and spoke to me about what was going on. I got to see Hong Kong and Romania battle it out, the two teams are apparently the best in the world.
