foos I really had never played foosball until a few months ago. I thought it was a silly pursuit; random spinnings of plastic guys impaled on large steel rods seemed pointless and barbaric. Wasn't it just something that they played at frat houses?

But then we got a foosball table in the office, and we all discovered the game. It takes amazing skill to control, pass, and shoot well. And the game it quite addictive. If you're going to play, find the right table. I highly recommend Tornado-brand tables (a Tornado Cyclone II is pictured right).
