It has been called many things: Corn Toss, Bean Bag, Bean Toss, Soft Horseshoes, Indiana Horseshoes; but to many of us born and raised in the Midwest, the game is passionately referred to as Cornhole.
Historians say the game originated in 14th century Germany and was rediscovered in the hills of Kentucky more than 100 years ago.
You are a lucky first-person witness to fundamental Cornhole techniques as displayed by my buddy, Sanders. Notice the perfect balance of Sanders' well-executed Cornholer stance; his proper southern attire and, of course, his refreshing adult beverage serving not only as an effective counterbalance to his spectacular toss but also as a handy rehydration source to ensure his electrolytes stay in perfect balance.
Oh, and then there's Sanders' "finger roll" technique which, he asserts, is the secret to his championship-like performance today.
I'm afraid, dear Sanders, that you may have fallen and hit your head causing your brain irreparable damage. Perhaps you've consumed too many of my specially-crafted adult beverages? At present, I am up 14-2 which means this is a deficit from which you'll never recover. Sorry 'bout that, son. It's a crying shame your Ivy League MBA in Finance didn't teach you how to count. Oh, dear. So much money down the drain. Look-y there. Another score from little ol' me. HUZZAH!
I can't imagine a better way to spend a splendid southern Sunday than Cornholin' and Steeplechasin' with a plentiful supply of Gentleman Jack and ginger ale.
Here come the fillies...
