That Baltimore event looked so good. There must have been 400 or more people watching those team finals. All played in great spirit between the teams. I loved the way some players threw their shirts to the crowd at the end. The ITTF could learn something from all this. I know they must cater for greater numbers at their events, but the distance this crowd was from the table was acceptable to viewing, and the way they must have moved seating around to each stage of the tournament to come from 150 tables down to just a few, it all looks so well orchestrated!

Wow! Rare video. The greatest American male player in the sponge era, Eric Boggan, made a rare appearance last weekend in Baltimore. The Boggan story is a bizarre one. A world ranked elite star, he got fed up with the life of being a pro table tennis player and he quit the game at the tender age of 28 to become a friggin' mailman! That was 20 years ago. He plays antispin on his Seemiller backhand and uses it a lot! Note the twiddles, anti is red (the two-color rule was not his friend. :( ) The kid wins in five sets on an edge.

Grant Li (member of US junior boys team/reverse penhold backhand) vs Eric Boggan (former US #1 and world #18/Seemiller grip). Li wins 3-2.

That video of Boggan is wonderful! I love the way he plays with his anti, really active strokes, responding so fast! Top notch! If I saw right, it is often after his second punch with the anti that his opponent nets the ball. Doesn't that mean he is using an anti with grip, like Juic Neoanti or Yasaka? The first punch reverses a little, so his opponent has to loop a little more, and so for the second punch there is enough spin on the ball to make reversal effective... or that is how I understand it. Can anyone confirm this? For it would have great implications for the tactics applied when using an anti, and I definitely want to learn those and work them out, making them available to others who are interested and/or might benefit.

Oh, and B. losing by a lucky ball (edge) and then really shaking and patting the youngster's shoulder as well, telling him he did swell, that is at least as wonderful to watch. Nice guy! Maybe that is why he gave up being a pro: played the game for its own sake, not to win? I'd like that.

Boggan holds the bat like I do, not like Danny S.
He twiddles alot where I just roll the forarm for anti on the backhand.

Both players played well , young Grant was picking on the corners for a while and Eric was playing purely on instint, nice close match

Former world top 50 player Sean O'Neil posted this video on the About forum.

His comment was: I would say this video is "American table tennis."

YIKES!!!

I read that Boggan is currently using Tenergy and a custom-made anti prepared by Butterfly especially for him. That anti probably plays nothing like the Butterfly Super Antis we can buy over the counter. I remember Roundrobin saying that Gao Jun's rubber is also nothing like the retail version we can buy.

Boggan used a Butterfly Powerdrive blade in his prime. He could be still using it.

Butterfly has a new Butterfly Powerdrive II blade now with supposedly similar properties, however I believe Butterfly is trying to force people to have an epileptic seizure with this new video they produced. You'll see what I mean at the end.

That's what I thought. They sure aren't the same as approved by the ITTF.

Perhaps he does not care...it's another rule they cannot really enforce anyway.

Do you know why Table Tennis is often called Ping Pong?
