Here’s actual footage of Michael Jordan playing beer pong (video)

The quasi-sports-related story of the day on the interwebs has been photos that have surfaced of Michael Jordan playing some beer pong recently at the Ritz-Carlton Coconut Grove hotel in Miami.

As the outfit often does, TMZ has dug deeper in the story and unearthed video of MJ engaging and enjoying himself while playing the frat party staple.

So, without further ado, here it is.

TMZ further reports that said Beer Pong competition occurred last Friday and MJ’s opponent was a soon-to-be-wed groom. Jordan himself reportedly was on his way to a different wedding on his own.

The report continues:

According to our extremely drunk eye witnesses, Jordan narrowly missed his last shot, bouncing it off the rim, and the groom responded with a devastating sinker.

The video is incredible — they’re listening to “N***** in Paris” while they play, and everyone starts rapping when the lyrics come up … “Jackson, Tyson, Jordan, Game 6.”

You gotta see Jordan’s reaction. The groom will be telling this story for the rest of his life.

Indeed. Being a man of a certain age, I missed out on the Beer Pong phenomenon, but apparently there are folks out there calling Jordan out for cheating, although given my inexperience with the game, I can’t say whether that is true one way or the other.

That Jordan, man. Anything for an edge. Good on him.
