Wacky Product of the Week: Self Table Tennis

I hate sports. I know that living in Southern California this goes against all the laws of nature--which include but are not limited to rooting for either the Angels or the Dodgers and getting excited about things like the Superbowl (I like the Puppy Bowl...)--but really, sports just aren't my thing. I have broken about six fingers, torn some ligaments, and had various other injuries during my childhood, almost all of which were sports-related, so yeah. Me + sports = no thanks.

However, table tennis? That's a sport I can get excited about! The sound of the ping-pong ball, the whoosh of the paddle, the sweat on my brow. Ah yes, table tennis, the game of champions!

So imagine my excitement when I found this winning item from Gizmine: Self Table Tennis.
How can you play a glorious sport like table tennis all by yourself, you ask? Frankly....I don't exactly know, but the techies at Gizmine seem to have it figured out, as evidenced by the cute video of the girl playing table tennis all by herself and having the time of her life.

I am thinking of purchasing this just for the fun of making videos where it looks like I'm a table tennis pro (Think Forest Gump) and I'm just whacking the ping pong ball so hard that you can't even see it! I bet I could populate some great YouTube videos with that kind of stuff. I could even learn gymnastics and do cartwheels in between paddle swings. Or eat a six-course meal while winning a game.

This crazy gadget runs around $40, so I'm not sure I'm ready for all the fame this will bring me. Yet.
