Mo Knows: Flip Cup... advice from a 5 time flip cup champ

Mo Knows: Flip Cup… advice from a 5 time flip cup champ

March 29, 2013 |  by  |  Blog

I don’t know about you, but I live for two very magical words each kickball season: “MATCH UP!”  It’s like music to my little alcoholic ears.

Speaking as someone who has won 5 flip cup championships in her kickball life (but I’m not one to brag), anyone can master the art of flip cup. You were there last week….you saw my skills. BOOM! Ya, I said it! So, listen up because I’m here to share what I’ve learned along the way and maybe you can provide me with a little competition next season <<<<< WTF? This bitch has some nerve!!!

  • Don’t “drink” the beer!! Any serious flip cupper should be SHOOTING that shit down your throat like it’s a god damn tequila shot or whatever else you like to get down quickly without actually tasting. The speed of which you consume the beer makes a world of difference. This is not a sippy cup game, nor is it a game for spitters. #GetItTogetherRookies
  • One Hand + Opposite Finger. For example: I shoot the beer with my left hand and flip the cup with my right hand (middle finger). Those of you who insist on using one hand for everything (there’s an inappropriate joke in there some where), are losing valuable time. It’s more difficult to balance a cup on the edge of the table with the same hand you use to drink. Every. Second.Counts. #DontFuckItUp
  • Don’t Rush. I do realize this contradicts the above bullet point, but trust me, as much as you want to hurry & save precious seconds, you must also take your time. Weird, I know. Nobody likes a spaz who is going so fast they fumble their cup in the air five times and then proceed to drop it on the floor. #FAIL
  • MOVE OUT THE WAY! Give your teammates breathing room when it’s their turn to flip. By crowding them, you run the risk of getting a sharp elbow to the rib or groin area. Remember, you are amongst vicious, vicious flip cuppers. Protect yourself. #OnlyTheStrongSurvive.
  • Last but not least…. NEVER, EVER challenge me. I will beat you. I will beat your team by myself. Seven of you and ONE of me. It’s embarrassing. Don’t do it. #ImAMachine

A big THANK YOU to everyone who came out to Kah Restaurant last Friday night and participated in South Bay Kickball’s 3rd Flip Cup championship!! CONGRATULATIONS to my team #jamaicanmerunmahn, who ended up taking home the trophy (that’s me not bragging again). AND a well-deserved chest bump to Danae Busby of Saved by the Ball, who represented her team alone & single-handedly took down just about everyone that night. Any girl who can flip cup like that is a friend of mine!!

 

See ya at the fields!!
