Video: Toddler conquers cornhole game

Plugged In

The game: Forget NFL lockouts. Cornhole is where to find heartwarming talent.

Latest champion throwing arm: That of 3-year-old Chase of North Carolina.

The technique: Overhead left-handed toss to the bottom half of the cornhole board. According to toddler physics, momentum propels the bean bag up the slanted board and into the hole. Seven times. In a row.

The record: Did we mention seven consecutive times?

True, young Chase did have a practice round and didn't land one. Then the 3-year-old Durham boy proceeded to amaze all bystanders at an Independence Day family beanbag toss. (You can skip the practice session and go straight to the 0:37 mark, but then you'll miss the self-psyching primal scream at 0:18.)

Prodigy or hustler? A champ either way.

For those not familiar with this classic summertime lawn game, cornhole's origins may hark back to 14th-century Germany. It enjoyed a 19th-century revival in the
Kentucky hills. Despite its, um, ambiguous name, cornhole has emerged as
a backyard favorite in the past decade, especially in Ohio, although
its players span the U.S., including North Carolina, Pennsylvania,
Tennessee, and Virginia. (See Yahoo! Clues for a geographic spread.) Searches on Yahoo! for "cornhole rules" (up +30% in the past 30 days) have been beating out "horseshoe rules," "soccer rules," "bocce ball rules," and "chess rules."

Not to put any pressure on Chase, but cornhole tournament season has just started. True, the junior will have to back up to 21 feet from the board hole, but another practice round and more primal screams should do it.
