Table tennis, ping-pong, take your pick. Our table became a model railroad every winter, just when we needed it the most! I preferred to use a sandpaper paddle. Why? Cause no one else was using one, and in another pathetic attempt at a physiological advantage, I though other might be worried about someone using such an usual material. Of course, the paddle probably caused more problems that it was worth, though I do appreciate being to draw pictures and funny things all over it.
