Good foosball

Posted on May 28, 2008 by Steve

Good foosball is, of all things among men, the most equally distributed; for every one thinks himself so abundantly provided with it, that those even who are the most difficult to satisfy in everything else, do not usually desire a larger measure of this quality than they already possess. And in this it is not likely that all are mistaken: the conviction is rather to be held as testifying that the power of scoring goalie shots and foosing opponents, which is properly what is called good foosball or foolsball, is by nature equal in all men... For to be possessed of a vigorous wrist is not enough; the prime requisite is rightly to apply it. The greatest wrists, as they are capable of the highest scores, are open likewise to the greatest defeats; and those who shoot very slowly may yet make far greater progress, provided they keep always to the corners, than those who, while they shoot hard, hit wood.
