I made the junior high kids bet at least fifty cents per game plus the next quarter, and grownups a dollar minimum plus the next quarter. Had some insurance guys and furniture store salesmen that couldn't get enough of it, along with the juke box and young girls.. I might lose about one game per week. It was habit forming just like pool.. When you got to where you could catch that ball and flick you wrist and make shots and bank them in etc, they loved it.. I found it good to play it and stay on my feet a lot and I had it real close to the counter so I could just take 3 or 4 steps to give change for the pinball machines (The Real Money Makers) and check the pool balls in and out...This game got big.. Lots of tournament around here for foosball back then..


brother james…..you're talking miller's language.....

i can hit z banks from the back row, or fire em in straight....(i could when i used to play a lot anyway....). ever seen a back row bank from the two man? i even used to back pass to my one man who could fire it in....

catch that ball just the right way with your three man....forgettaboutit…..

my two favorite moves from the front row were (after i own the guy playing across from me and beat him a couple times...) were (1) swing it across fast, and hit em with the *slow* change up... --and-- (2) dance the ball back and fourth between the front men and then gently kick it back to the five man who pounds it in...!

tornado tables are little different....(i used to regularly play a champ...)

yeah, i majored in foosball for a couple years.... (did some narly shit i can't believe myself to this day throwing cricket as well.....)

young miller was a triple threat....legit

Sounds like you might have the edge, but I'll give you a shot if we can find a table! As I used to say back in the day, "You can't stop what you can't see!" I'm much better on the single-goalie table than the common 3-goalie Tornado (I think) table.

Love it! Unfortunately, just pool, ping pong, and darts at Bluegrass.

I should also mention that the fantastic 50’s style restaurant within walking distance also serves a fantastic breakfast! Members tourney breakfasts have become a tradition! I tried Biscuits and gravy in MS, so I’m expecting all you guys to try the scrapple!!

No, no tofu either. I do eat the organic produce from my garden, my free range eggs and treatment free raw honey. We also have a few places that sell good grass fed meats

Mitch, I am glad you liked Nick's, Warren's and my breakfast spot in SouthHaven. Quite a bunch of us were eating there by Tourney' s last day.

Look forward to trying your spot for breakfast, and yes I will try scrapple. Probably tastes better than it sounds.

Can't wait til tourney. I will see you Tuesday night, 6/4, at Bluegrass.
