About a month ago, I wrote a piece for TODAY.com about “Alcohockey,” a combination of beer pong and air hockey created by two bored Canadian university students.
The idea is simple – take an old air hockey table, cut six cup-sized holes in front of each goal, place red Solo cups into said holes, and fill them with beer (and not water like their thin-blooded cousins to the south). Grab a paddle, drop a puck, and drink when it falls into one of your cups. Fun!
Now one of my fellow NBC staffers – this guy Jimmy-something – has been inspired (prolly by my awesome article) to build a replica, and he’s made this nice little video of it.
Anyway, behold the glory of Canadian Beer Hockey! No word yet if they’ll be making an arcade version of this, but there certainly are air hockey tables in bars across the country that could benefit from the transformation.
Whaddya think – a fun time or just plain stoopid?
