There is a new game in town
I originally thought for my first sports and beer post, I would write something about what new craft beers are showing up in sports arenas or perhaps a bicycle and beer tour. Well, when something smacks you in the face, you have to run with it.
Not Just For Kids
Last year, during a visit to Cleveland, my stepsister told us about a backyard game in which you throw a corn filled bag into a wooden board that has a hole built-in. They call it cornhole. Sounded like beanbag toss to me. I played this in elementary school. Do adults really play this? Where I am from, the backyard game of choice is usually horseshoes. I didn’t think much of it until it started popping up in just about every beer event I came across online.
Frankly, with a beer in hand, this could be fun. I know what you are thinking. Is cornhole really a sport? Ask one of the many die-hard cornhole competitors. These players take this game seriously.
