Phil B: Tell me something interesting about you.
Dwayne: I love to play table tennis.
Phil B: Really? Are you good?
Dwayne: I’m pretty good. Andrew Luck is probably the best on the team. That’s a no-brainer.
Phil B: Very competitive? Spins the ball and everything?
Dwayne: We all spin the ball. Patrick McAfee is very talented also. I crushed him at his house in a tournament.
Phil B: How long ago was this?
Dwayne: It was in the offseason, maybe in March.
Phil B: I know Mac. He’s going to say that he’s upped his game.
Dwayne: He thinks he has, but until he proves it … As coaches like to say, you’re only as good as your last game, OK?
Phil B: And you crushed him?
Dwayne: I crushed him.
Phil B: You said the word ‘crush.’
Dwayne: I crushed him on the table.
Phil B: What, like 21-5?
Dwayne: It was pretty bad.
Phil B: You don’t want to say the score.
Dwayne: I don’t remember.
Phil B: You could say you don’t want to say the score out of respect for him.
Dwayne: I like that. You know, I don’t want to say the score out of respect for one Patrick McAfee, but it wasn’t in his favor.
Phil B: When did you start playing?
Dwayne: I started playing in high school. My high school football coach, he didn’t want me to go home because he knew I would get in trouble. In the spring time, I didn’t have a sport to play, so he got the table out and we started playing and I’ve been playing ever since.
Phil B: Do you have a table at home?
Dwayne: Yeah, I do.
Phil B: Do you do the Forrest Gump thing, where you hit the ball off the side of a raised table?
Dwayne: Sometimes I do, when I’m by myself.
Phil B: When is the last time you took on Luck?
Dwayne: A couple of months ago, but the last time I took him on, I beat him finally. He was on a winning streak of like 20 games.
Phil B: Was this a training camp thing?
Dwayne: No, sometimes after games, over to his place. He used to beat me pretty bad but I’ve gotten better. The last time we played, I beat him. Then we played two more games and he beat me.
Phil B: He reminded you that he’s still king.
Phil B: So if he’s like the No. 1 seed and you’re No. 2?
Dwayne: Easily, No. 2.
Phil B: Nobody else in the room?
Dwayne: (Kicker) Cody Parkey, when he was here, he was pretty good. But Cody Parkey got that work from Dwayne Allen. He got beat.
Phil B: Anybody else aspiring?
Dwayne: Whoever wants to play, let me know. I’m taking on all challengers.
