No it's not my compura computer this time -- it's a game. Table tennis. I have a tendency to become obsessed with anything I take an interest in, and this game wouldn't be left out. My Wednesday evenings at the YMCA are such an important ritual that when she was putting me up on the staff roster I said to my boss,"I can't work on Wednesdays because that's when I play ping pong."
Recently I ordered a training DVD and have been downloading lots of matches [totalling over 5GB in the last three days] featuring Timo Boll [ranked #3 in the world -- for some reason I don't like him. The guy wins too much -- I was so happy when it turned out he was fairly trounced by Samsonov in one of the matches], Wang Liqin [#1], and my very own Joo Se Hyuk [I love to see this guy slow down those offensive players, and once he gets on the offensive, he throws them off-balance].
Here're Zoran Primorac and Kim Taek Soo going at it.
