The new definition of leisure

Nearing the end of the weekend, I thought I’d let everyone in on one of the favorite pastimes of the Midwest. I had never heard of this game before I went to college in Ohio, but it looks like it’s catching on. The game is called “cornhole.” A suggestive name, I know, but it is seriously fun on a Sunday afternoon (if it weren’t raining), especially with beer in hand.

Here are the rules and regulations for the game. It’s pretty much just poor-man’s horseshoes, but if you take the time to make or spend the money to buy a good set, it can provide years of entertainment. And plus, when you have guests over, you can invite them to play this ridiculous game from the Midwest. Who wouldn’t want to play a game called “cornhole” anyway?

    Being from the Midwest (Michigan), I can vouch for the game. A lot of fun and easy for anyone new to figure out. However, I’ve only heard it called “Cornhole” in New Hampshire; everywhere else it has been called “Bag-Oh.”

    I have heard it called “bag-oh” before as well. Since I found out about this game in college, it was only natural for us to embrace the term “cornhole” for it.

    Jeff, I couldn’t be more disappointed. What next a popped collar? A peroxide waif on your arm?

    Ok, I’ll admit it is fun, but I’ll take bocce over cornhole any day.
