Before we could afford to drink Lion Stout from Sri Lanka and craft beers at the Democratic Republic of Beer, we, like most college kids, would spend our Saturday nights talking shit and playing beer pong till we got piss drunk. And from the looks of this past weekend, not much has changed.

Red solo cups, white ping pong balls, and former frat(?) boys surrounded the outside bar of the DRB. It was Round One of the Beer Pong Championship Series, and unlike the collegiate, just-make-your-balls-in-the-cup version of beer pong we're used to playing, the rules at the DRB were a bit more structured.

But that didn't stop these guys from running into their past and reliving their glory days as beer pong masters.

Here are the five bros you meet while playing beer pong.

The Natural

What's your beer pong alter ego?

Gary: "I just started playing five months ago. This guy introduced me to it," he said as he pointed towards his friend.

Looks like Gary's a natural.

Friend: Yeah, he just started playing and was really good at it. I was like 'What the fuck?'

Guess that's what happens when the student becomes the master.

Friend: Just call me Mr, Miagi.

What's your best beer pong tip?

Gary: I play basketball, so I have pretty good hand-eye coordination, but it's all in the wrist.

We'll keep that in mind next time, Gary.

The Dude Who Takes the Game Way Too Seriously

What's your beer pong alter ego?

Chris Morgan: You can say I'm the guy who takes it seriously. I'm a bit competitive and take everything I do seriously.

What's your best beer pong tip?

Chris: Just get your balls in the cup, I guess.

Sounds simple enough.

The Pros

What's your beer pong alter ego?

Paul Janas: We've been playing beer pong for about two years.

We'll call these guys the pros.

Alvin Ruangsomboon: We used to play poker together and would play beer pong at Lush.

You guys really seem to be into this.

Alvin: Yeah, people really get into it. There's actually a national championship game in Vegas.

Paul: It would be pretty cool if we ever made it.

What's your best beer pong tip?

Paul: I don't know, there's a different set of rules, but it all depends on how the racks are set up.

Alvin: Just go with it.

The Alcoholic

What's your beer pong alter ego?

Henry, the self-proclaimed Pingu de Hialeah: The alcoholic.

Lady friend: He's been playing ever since he's been drinking beer ... That's a really long time!

What's your best beer pong tip?

Henry: Just throw and make the balls in the cup.

Is it better playing drunk or sober?

Henry: You concentrate better when you're drunk.

Sounds pretty legit for beer pong.
