Real Men Play Cornhole

Do you know what cornhole is?  If your first reaction wasn’t “duh,” it may have been “WTH?!”  If you were in the second group, you aren’t alone.  Check out this video below of my first encounter with cornhole.

 

 

So cornhole is a game.  A pretty awesome game, if I may say so myself.  Here is the gist.  Two to four players grab some bean bags. The competitors take turns throwing their bags at a cornhole board.  The board has a hole in the center.  If you sink your bag in the hole, you score three points.  A bag that lands on the board earns one point and a total air ball scores zero.

1. It might be the only exercise you get.

If you are a workaholic who spends every waking minute at the office or a total couch potato who breaks out in a sweat just thinking about the gym, you need some exercise.  Granted, cornhole doesn’t burn as many calories as say…marathon training.  But, something is better than nothing, right?  At the very least, you’ll get off your duff and use some of your muscles.

Really, in this day and age, you really can’t have a tailgating party without cornhole.  A tailgating party sans cornhole is asking for disaster.  Just don’t do it.

3. It counts as quality bonding time with your woman.

Your girl demands you spend “quality time” with her.  That means you can:

a)      Waste two hours at some terrible chick-flick.

b)      Eat dainty portions of food at the hottest restaurant in town, spend a fortune, and still be starving when you leave.

c)       Go to a lame house party thrown by one of her bimbo girlfriends.

d)      Sit around and talk about your feelings.

Or…you could play cornhole.  Anyone can play cornhole.  There are no special skills required.  Teaching your woman to play cornhole won’t be like teaching her to shoot a basketball.  You’ll still get to be a man without all the frustrating lack of ability that comes with girls trying to play sports.

 

 

 

4. You get to eat good food.

It is nearly impossible to play cornhole without partaking in some killer BBQ.  It is like there is some mysterious connection between cornhole boards and grills.  Pull one out and the other will magically appear.

 

5. You get to drink beer.

Turn your next cornhole match into a drinking game.  Here are some suggestions on how to get things started.

 

6. Supporting a good cause is easy.

I always feel guilty when I see flyers for charity runs.  I would love to help out this charity or that non-profit.  But I would get tired running from the parking lot to the starting line; 5K is out of the question.

 

I can, however, toss a cornhole bag like no one’s business.  Sponsor me to toss bags all day long and I’ll play in every charity cornhole event under the sun.

Have you ever been called upon to babysit during an emergency situation?  Instead of letting your eyes bug out of your head like a deer caught in the headlights, take a chill pill.  Pull out the cornhole game set and those kids will be entertained for hours.

 

Well, what do you think?  Are you man enough to let other guys throw bags at your cornhole?

 

Jason Miller works for Custom Corntoss, selling cornhole boards and bags.  Naturally, he is infatuated with the game.  As such, he finds it astonishing when he comes across people who aren’t as enthused about cornhole.  Whenever he gets the chance, he tries his hardest to convince others to join him on the cornhole bandwagon.
