To the Editor:

I'd like to thank you for your excellent series on the history of beer pong. That was journalism at its best; it is educative, it is fun to read and, I hope, it is based on facts.

I, as a grad student at the University of Helsinki, Finland, didn't realize beer pong was invented at Dartmouth, although I came across this stupid sport in 2003 when visiting my friend's friends at Union College, another old-school Northwestern institution.
