Having a smashing time

I haven’t been able to post in this blog lately nor visit my usual online haunts and my “later” to-do list has doubled these past several days. The reason: an office table tennis tournament.
Ever since the office put up a new table in preparation for last year’s Cebu tri-media tournament, more and more Sun.Star people have been playing table tennis. I’ve taken up the sport I learned in high school drinking sessions and have been enjoying it. It’s not football but the exercise helps. I’ve been meaning to take up football again after reading one of those press freedom week features that showed most desk editors in Cebu die of heart ailments.

And as with anything I do, I take to the Web for tips. I found these helpful table tennis tips videos from About.com. The videos helped me unlearn the bad habits in playing the game that I took up when I learned it under the influence of alcohol.
