Syracuse-Georgetown: This One's For All the Ping-Pong Balls

via <a href=""></a>

This is it, boys and girls.  We've finally reached terminal velocity.

Over the last thirty years or so, Syracuse and Georgetown have played out their blood feud on the basketball hardwood.  On June 11th, the rivalry will find a new home: On the beer pong hardwood.  (Plywood is hardwood, right?  Good.)

Big Apple Orange Syracuse's New York City Alumni Club is hosting a "Battle of the Big East," pitting 16 orange-clad assumed victors against 16 of the saddest looking mutts that you've ever seen.  It's a beer pong showdown, and it's all going down at Duke's:

The 2nd Annual Big Apple Orange Beer Pong Tournament is on.

Dust off those ping pong balls and save the date for the Big East rival event of the year... the Syracuse vs. Georgetown Beer Pong Tournament!

Join us on Saturday, June 11 at Duke's for an afternoon of friendly competition with local Georgetown alumni, and sign-up to participate as one of the 32 teams (16 from each school) that will compete in the head-to-head tournament.

The format will be single elimination, as well as a runner's bracket, so each team will play at least two games! Prizes will be awarded to the winning teams.

The cost is $30 per person to play ($60 per team) and includes unlimited Bud and Bud Light for four hours! Sign-up for the tournament today, and please be sure to email with your team partner's name, so we can ensure the proper teams are represented in the bracket.

Even if you're not going to throw balls into Solo cups for the glory of ol' Syracuse, you can still attend the festivities.  There will be drink specials and whatnot, so I suggest getting all red-nosed and telling as many Hoyas as possible what you think about their mother's lineage.

The event is scheduled to run from 2:00-6:00 p.m.  Your disdain for Georgetown, however, doesn't have a closing time.
