P.J. Horan wore his lucky outfit to the Maryland beer pong championships: a knit cap, silver shades, an old yellow shirt and a black shirt with skulls that read "got rum?" When he's actually playing the game, which involves lobbing balls across a table into cups of beer, he gets juiced up by listening to 1980s bands and the soundtrack from the boxing movie Rocky on a Minidisc player. "Let's put it this way: I go to University of Maryland and they are top 50 in football, baseball and basketball.

Montgomery County police have arrested a Gaithersburg man who they say has sexually assaulted at least 10 college-age men in the last decade. Joey Poindexter, 38, of Plum Creek Drive, was arrested Saturday, after a man came forward with an accusation of assault earlier this month. The man said he met Poindexter during a night of drinking at a beer pong tournament at Looney's bar in College Park on Oct. 3 and later accompanied him back to Poindexter's home, where he was sexually assaulted.

We've all heard about the "special interest" groups representing big oil and tobacco companies. But the beer-pong lobby? Yesterday, a veteran state senator abandoned his effort to ban drinking games such as beer pong and flip cup in Baltimore bars after facing an impassioned online campaign by leagues of beer-pong players. Sen. George W. Della Jr., a Baltimore Democrat, contends that the games encourage excessive drinking and lead to raucous behavior in city neighborhoods. A bill he introduced late last month would have outlawed any games that award drinks as prizes in city taverns.

PHILADELPHIA -- The bar is packed, the floor is wet, and dozens of glassy-eyed young people are squeezed around tables trying to lob pingpong balls into cups of beer. It is the final round of a beer pong championship, sponsored by a maker of portable beer pong tables, and all across the bar, as one team scores points, the other happily guzzles beer. "It's awesome," said Chris Shannon, 22, a senior at Drexel University here. "If you win, you win. If you lose, you drink. There's no negative."

Live '80s music is a hot commodity in Baltimore. Every time the Legwarmers play Rams Head Live in Power Plant Live, the show sells out. So it wasn't surprising to see a decent crowd come to the Lodge Bar in Power Plant Live a few Fridays back for its monthly '80s Explosion party. There was no cover charge when my roommate Patchen and I showed up about 8 p.m. last month. The Lodge Bar looks just like you'd expect: tons of wood and deer heads everywhere. Though plenty of patrons (most in their 20s, 30s and 40s)

Every May, Pimlico hosts one of Baltimore's most striking juxtapositions: Thousands of infield revelers guzzle beer and soak in live music while a stone's throw away, the prim and proper set sip Black-Eyed Susans and don fancy hats. It's hard to imagine a more polarized scene. That's Preakness for you. This year, all eyes are on the infield. After the Maryland Jockey Club banned the long-standing BYOB policy last year, infield attendance plummeted. Now, the club is trying to lure back partyers with a bottomless-mug special, a younger-skewing live-music lineup and a controversial ad campaign.

Picture the crowd at a crazy college house party: Kids slamming back red plastic cups, cussing, shouting and laughing. There's almost always a game of beer pong going, with two teams trying to toss pingpong balls in cups of beer across a table. Most kids couldn't imagine playing a drinking game like this anywhere else. But taking beer pong out of a house party and into a bar is just as entertaining -- as long as you have the right bar. A college drinking game like beer pong needs a college drinking atmosphere.
