Congrats!

A few comments though:

"Are you sure you want to quit looser?" - Ummm... no, I want to quit tighter (spelling, dude). I get the feeling you're referencing Doom there, but I don't think a Pong game making fun of the player is such a good thing :) (I know, it's a learning demo, but still...)

The one non-smartass thing I'd recommend is to give the player a short "break" time from when they miss the ball until the next one spawns. I missed it, and the balls started falling from the middle... I missed two more before I realized what was going on! Possibly spawn the ball right at the other players paddle so that you have a longer time to get to the right spot?

Good job, though. Keep it up, looser!
