Speaking of Table Tennis, did you know that Rod Laver won the Superstar Competition in the area of Table Tennis? It was ridiculously easy for him. I think he almost had a shutout in one of the games when his opponent's ping pong ball hit the tip of the table and won the point. I think the opponent was the Olympic Champion Bob Seagren. After that they banned tennis players from competing in Table Tennis.
