CHICAGO  - Admit it, you probably dabbled in the activity during the college years of your life.

Most people have. Beer Pong was just for fun-and perhaps a buzz-back in the innocent days and continues to be a popular activity on campus that's played by thousands of students a year.

The spirit of competition might not have been the fuel for those games of Beer Pong, but it sure is for a number of people in the Chicagoland area and around the country. In fact, there is a league for that.

The National Beer Pong League made a stop in the suburbs this fall with "Best of the Midwest 6" at H.O.M.E. in Arlington Heights. People play Beer Pong competitively, sometimes even without alcohol, and do so for major cash prizes. This weekend is the NBPL's signature event - The World Series of Beer Pong - at the Westlake Resort and Casino in Las Vegas.

Josh Frydman caught up with members of the National Beer Pong League from the area in the fall and ran the story on Sports Feed on July 5th, the eve of the World Series. Click on the video above to watch.
