If you like football, ping pong, video games and beer, I have a meetup for you.

Last Saturday, some friends of mine at a new startup in town (The Delta Program) got together at their workspace at 9th and Congress and watched college football on their giant board that they normally use for presentations. The space is awesome and they've also got a bunch of flatscreen tvs on rolling stands with AppleTV/Chromecast hooked up to each one. Bottom line, we had football on every TV, with one game featured on the giant main screen, ping pong, great food and beer. I reasoned that this was an event that absolutely HAD to be shared with folks on Reddit. They agreed, so here we are. Here's what we need:

-A couple of XBox controllers (we've got Madden '14, or whatever the newest one is called...I'm far from an expert on sports video games)
-BYOB - we'll get a case of beer (we want to be good hosts, amirite?) but we're not doing gluten free or light beer or anything. I can only promise that it won't be Bud/Coors/Miller crap. I'm a beer snob. Deal with it.
-If somebody has Super Smash Bros. or Mario Kart (and corresponding system), I'll be your best friend (Beerio Kart, anybody?)

Featured football games will be as follows, though I'm open to suggestions depending on interest:

Bethune-Cookman at #8 Florida State (5:00pm)*
Colorado State at #1 Alabama (6:00pm)
Texas State at #25 Texas Tech (6:00pm)
Auburn at #6 LSU (6:45pm)

*This game will be on the big screen, I'm an FSU Alum. DealWithIt.jpg

I think that covers it. Who's down?
