The Great Debate: Beirut or Beer Pong?

I’m tagging this entry as part of our “Beyond Gate Six” category, because nobody’s playing beer pong inside gate six, right? *wink*

It’s been argued back and fourth through time, but which do you prefer?

Beirut doesn’t suffer the negative connotations that the word “beer” brings, although it does sound a bit pretentious. According to the Daily Princetonian, the name Beirut came into existence during the Lebanese civil war, Beirut being the capital of Lebanon and the game being analogous to bombs being dropped or missiles being fired.

According to a survey conducted by College Humor, out of 44,938 respondents, 23.6% prefer the term “Beirut”, while 76.4% used the term “Beer Pong”.

So which is it at St. Johns?

    I submit the movie Beerfest as evidence that beer pong is actually a different game. The two names are used interchangeably in most of the parts of the United States that I’ve been to, but if the question is which one is correct, I have to give my nod to beirut. – Fernando Arrue
