Brodmann Blades are the first major innovation in the sport of table tennis since… ever?
The ‘Blades’ have no handle, and are instead worn like a glove on either hand, which is supposed to give players improved comfort, ergonomics and sensory feedback as the ball is played right on the hand, giving you greater ball control, a faster and more intuitive game, more spin, and a superior backhand.
Since those all sound like things you’d want to have while playing table tennis, the Brodmann Blades are definitely something that any serious table tennis aficionado should check out.
After what must have been a very long and grueling search, St. Pauli has finally found their St. Pauli Girl for 2009, and it’s a “successful print and TV model” named Katarina Van Derham.
In case you were worried that the St. Pauli Girl was going to be anything less than perfect, just be happy to know that Katarina is 5’6” tall with blonde hair and blue-green eyes, is fluent in five languages including English, Slovak, Czech, Russian and Polish, has modeled for Vogue, Marie Claire, FHM and Iron Man, has been featured in ad campaigns for AT&T, Bicycle Casino, Rockstar Energy Drink and Dodge, is trained in Krav Maga, a military self-defense technique, enjoys kick-boxing, wrestling and playing basketball, volleyball and table tennis, and when she’s not modeling, she’s developing her own make-up line and working on architectural graphic design.
Oh, and she looks good in a Bavarian Beer Girl costume. (Holding Photoshopped beers if you look closely at the image above.)
