McMurdo, ANTARCTICA Yeah, this is for real, foos in Antarctica... maybe I'll stick it in the playing locations file...News Flash 2/98: About a year ago, I asked the keeper of this page, Rob Holmes, if he could take some foosball pictures the next season he went "down South." He followed through, so come see what kind of foosball table is installed in cold, cold McMurdo Base in Antarctica. Also lots of pics of Antarctica, South Pole, McMurdo Base, and a great South Pole FAQ. (6/98)

MURDER OF A FOOSBALL TABLE by an air hockey table Talk about shoddy build construction. I freely admit I still cringe just looking at it though! Horrible. From Matthew Elridge at Stanford. Image is at the bottom of page after the kites and the aforementioned air hockey table; click on it for full size image. The foosball table was incrementally "damaged" over time, and eventually was put out of its misery by the air hockey table, aggresively accelerated over 8 feet. Link updated 2/98.

MURDER OF A FOOSBALL TABLE, Part II, by a lynch mob at Rutgers Univ Omega Kappa Tau. The caption is: ...our last fooseball table, after we got the new one...

Yugo FoosballYes, a Yugo Automobile made into a foosball table by New York artist Kevin O'Callaghan. A must-see! My art-critic comment: note the "new-version" grey and white TS men in the audience watching the "old-style" flesh-tone red- and blue-uniformed TS men. All this in a lost past, the Yugo, which represents the downfall of our dedication to consistent promotion of a new generation of foosers to keep the sport alive. Also see Mr. O'C's Yugo Toaster, Yugo Diner, Yugo Baby Grand Piano, etc.
Yugo Foosball 2: another set of pics from the same show from someone else who attended. I think this pic is the better one, you can see the woodwork really well; the wooden feet in place of automotive tires is really funny looking. (5/98) Cow Foosball Table Clay loves this one.

The War Against Silence music page.Enter the word "foosball" into the search field and article that mention (sometimes lots of) foos come up. Small excerpt from article ".TWAS 129: Verbow, Radiohead, Michael Penn" : The real problem, actually, was not that foosball left us unable to concentrate on what our investors' money was supposed to be underwriting,...The rules of Chaosball, for those of you with foosball tables who wish to try it, are as follows. The game is always played two-on-two (one-on-one Chaosball is physically possible, but a hopeless mess, and officially unsanctioned). Each attacking player begins the game with one ball in hand, and at the starting cry they fling them into play (service subtleties are deprecated in Chaosball) and everyone begins whacking at the two balls with as little finesse as possible. When a goal is scored, the victimized defender must retrieve the ball and return it to play promptly (doing this without getting instantly scored upon with the other ball takes some practice), while at the other end of the table the defender of the team that scored must also record the tally with one hand while play continues. A dead ball cannot be touched or re-served, it must be dislodged with the live one. We made up a rule at one point about what to do if both balls become marooned in neutral zones at once, but I've forgotten what it was, and in several months of play the situation has never come up. As noted earlier, the harder, more irregular and more uncooperative foosballs you can find, the better. Chaosball games go by extremely quickly, so matches are always two-out-of-three. And if you play during company board meetings, close the conference room door first. . . (6/99)
Enciclopedia del Rock Argentina "Metegol" (1980) Raúl Porchetto. I guess an album by the name "metegol," which means foosball was made by a famous Argentinian rock musician. I'm not sure if it also means something else, but for now until I receive a translation, I'll assume it's foos related. Viven escalando la gran cima/ pateando el amor de los demás, /buscando/hacer mal toda su vida/para llegar a comprar el silencio del mundo, / a comprarse alguien para amar, /convencerse que son elegidos, algo especial. /// Todo lo que hagas pibe no es bueno, / hoy ser joven no tiene perdón, / sos la pelotita de este juego, /un metegol. /// Míralos como van a la mentira, /cómo le corren a la verdad, /¿qué anda pasando con la vida, qué libro usás? / Mirá cómo hablan, mirá cómo viven, /mirate que estamos igual.(6/99)

French Joke ArchiveFoosball is "babyfoot" in French... Scroll down to joke #105... here it is: C'est les Jeux Olympiques pour nains a Pagran-sur-pattes. Les organisateurs ont pense a tout : la taille du stade est plus petite, les buts sont adaptes, le ballon est plus petit. Bref tout a ete etudie dans les moindre details. Le match de foot commence, tout se passe bien les 2 equipes s'eclatent comme des fous. Arrive la mi-temps, nos petits joueurs se dirigent vers les estiaires. L'entraineur va voir l'organisateur : "Ecoutez, on est embete, on sait vous avez pense a tout mais les toilettes sont trop haut : mes joueurs en foutent partout quand ils sautent pour essayer de pisser dans la cuvette, et sauter ca les fatiguent..." "Ah oui c'est vrai, on est desole... Attendez Chez Dede le bar d'en face il y a des chiottes a la turc..." Tout nos joueurs s'en vont chez Dede... Ils entrent dans les toilettes et font ce qu'ils ont a faire... L'equipe de foot de nains retourne vers le stade au pas de course en groupe. A ce moment la, un pilier de bar completement bourre gueule : "EH DEDE !!! y'a ton babyfoot qui se fait la malle !!!!" (6/99)
Serbo-Croatian Joke Archive It's a long archive with only one foosball joke; foosball is "stolni nogomet" in Croatian (literally "table football/soccer") so if you are interested, do a FIND command in your browser for "stolni nogomet." Anyways here's the joke right here, from D.J. Skodra: Q: Kako se zove stvar na koju stavljas nogu? ?!? A: stolni nogomet! This translates roughly to what do you call where you put your foot? The answer being a pun, roughly a "foot-put-table", since the word for soccer, or football, sounds similar to foot-put. Thanks to Marina, the Croatian translation sensation. (6/99)

Dazed and Confused movieinterview w/director Richard Linklater. There is a foosball scene in this movie, it's set in 1976! However this link only has a brief mention of a foostable in the director's office, but if you're interested in the film, go ahead... I'll try to find more interesting Dazed & Confused Foos soon... by the way the foos scene has the best action shots (from within the table!) of foosball in recent memory. If you want to see a movie clip of the foosball scene from this movie, see my foosball multimedia page.

I heard it through the grapevine from my cousin Garrett Kakita of La Canada, CA, who worked with the Kings, and even operated the message display board at their stadium in LA. ....................(go sharks!)
