Everything You Know is Pong: An Illustrated History of Table Tennis


Among what we can only assume are an endless amount of activities Fidel Castro enjoyed while shirtless, he was a table tennis fan. A new book on the sport, Everything You Know is Pong, digs up a fairly wonderfully shocking photo of everyone’s favorite commie, chubby and mesmerized at the ping pong table. The rest of Pong is similarly simultaneously history rich and goofy, finding the intersection between the sport’s crucial landmarks and its kitsch moments. The book was just released last week, pick up a copy and see a few more images after the jump.
