The game has it's own World Series in Las Vegas and the Notre Dame football team has made noise of its own with its now-famous "Trick Shot Mondays".

After Mizzou redid its football field, I felt compelled to make a beer pong table inspired by the new turf. The following is step-by-step process of what it took to create a miniature, Farout Field masterpiece. 

1. Paint it green

The first phase was to paint the base layer green. Multiple coats were used so that there would be a bright and strong foundation to paint on.

2. Add in gold and white lines on your field

Phase two included adding the gold and white border and the main lines. I left the 40 yard-lines open in order to make painting centerfield easier. I made them straight with masking tape (paint between two pieces, then rip off the tape to come away with clean edges).

3. Paint the end zones

Phase three included painting the end zones and the SEC logos on the 25 yard-lines. Finding the Mizzou font for numbers and lettering was a lot harder than I had imagined. So the letter "I" is actually the number one and the letter "O" is actually a zero. 

4. Add hashmarks and numbers to your "field."

Phase Four included adding the hashmarks and numbering to the field to show each yard line.

5. Paint the tiger head logo

The Tiger head at midfield was the hardest part to paint by hand. And no, I have never taken a day of art class in my life, so you can do it too.

This. Voila! Here's the table in all of its glory, fully painted and assembled.

The table took me forever to paint and build, but it's worth it in the end. It also reminded us all how great a game football is.
