A local news team in Providence, Rhode Island recently uncovered a "new" drinking game that is sweeping across New England and could bring an end to higher education as we know it.  It's called "Beer Pong."

That's right, folks.  The I-Team (about as relevant as the A-Team) uncovered this new fangled game that involves two teams of two players each throwing a spherical, lightweight apparatus from the future called a 'ping pong ball' into cups filled with cheap domestic beer.  If this 'ping pong ball' lands in the opponents' cup, players have to....gasp...drink the cup's contents until none remain!

Oh, the horror! Sound the alarm! Get your children out of college and hide them in the basement until this all blows over.

Coming up next, the I-Team investigates the dangers of Friendster.
