    So, my friend does not have room for his foosball table, so he offered to let me borrow for the year (or so) if I came and picked it up. So, today was the day.
    It's a Tornado Twister II, and is a fantastic table. It's very similiar to the ones we usually play on in bars (but the guys aren't counter-weighted.) It's ungodly heavy to move! Annoyingly I had it just about all put together when my ratchet broke, so I can't play with it tonight... [​IMG]
    Anyway...
    I still have yet to actually play in a tournament, but I play with a number of folks that do and am quite competitive with them.
    Anyone else a foosball fanatic?

    Carrying up a very steep flight of stairs without the ability to put it down because all of the rods are still in? Yeah, it's pretty much a fucking bitch to carry it. Just carrying on level ground is fine. Perhaps heavy wasn't the word, and ungodly pain to carry. Happy?

    bill i was wondering ...how does that young lady feel about that seemingly condescending photo in your sig?
    i asked my wife and a few other people and they all thought that if it said "look WHO i found..." it would sound alot better.

    Considering she was just some waitress in LA @ the HTF national meet, I don't think she really cares. It's supposed to be a joke.
    I learned most of my foosball skills at work, as well. Both of my previous jobs (General Electric and a cruddy startup) had foosball tables. [​IMG]
