A 'racket' is a scam or some sort of fraudulent, coercive, extortionary, or illegal scheme or operation. On the other hand, badminton and ping pong (table tennis) are popular racquet sports, especially in Asian cultures. They are fast-paced and can be highly entertaining. Believe it or not, the most painful sports injury I ever experienced was playing ping pong! Now, keep in mind, that while playing football, I have broken bones, dislocated shoulders, torn rotator cuffs, etc, etc, but nothing compares to an injury I sufferred playing ping pong. At the age of 12, right after playing table tennis at my friend's house, we were folding up the table. Somehow, my index finger got caught in the middle. I screamed in agony. 42 years later, my finger still looks somewhat mangled. Okay now, enough of my tragic past, let's get to the trivia!
