The first-person story of a how ping pong saved the life of a New York City kid and took him all the way to North Korea

My guide soon returned with one of the North Korean players. We both stared at each other for about 3 seconds, and to break the silence, I said, “Hey, man, what’s up?” I don’t think he knew whether to laugh, smile, or run. He definitely seemed nervous. I mean, I have never met a North Korean and I’m more than sure he had never met an American either, especially one that looked like me. I was pretty sure he had never met someone like me before, although he may have had the chance to see Dennis Rodman on television. I shook his hand and said, “Practice, practice, thank you!” while making gestures with my hands and racket so that he could understand because he spoke zero English.
