Sack Up, Tailgaters: There’s A National Cornhole Championship That Actually Exists

My athletic prowess has earned me dozens of trophies over the years. Little League Participation 1999. Little League Participation 2000. Little League Participation 2002 (I got snubbed in 2001 for performing a routine cup check on the coach’s son — he failed). The list goes on.

Now, there’s a new opportunity to add to the already extensive collection of bling lining the shelves of my childhood-bedroom-turned-unused-workout-space-for-my-parents: The American Cornhole Championship X. What does the ‘X’ stand for? I don’t know, but it sounds badass.

Contestants from across the nation headed to Knoxville, Tennessee last Friday for the chance to punish each other’s cornholes. The competition is hosted annually by the American Cornhole Organization (ACO).

Highlights from last year:

For those of you unfamiliar with the rules of cornhole, the concept is pretty simple.

Step 1) Drink a shit ton of beer.
Step 2) Find hot girl at tailgate to be your partner.
Step 3) Get rejected.
Step 4) Call her a lesbian.
Step 5) Partner with your boy, chuck bean bags at opponents’ cornholes.
Step 6) Pull shirt collar over your head, profess that you are “The Great Cornholio.”
Step 7) Vomit.
Step 8) Drink a shit ton of beer.

It’s the perfect opportunity to finally get some credibility for your mastery of the craft, cultivated from years of hardcore tailgating.
