11 The Beautiful Game is One Gorgeous Foosball Table

That's not just any foosball table: behold the 11 the beautiful game, a prototype table by GRO design and Tim model makers:

'11' is a collaboration of two companies - GRO design and Tim modelmakers – each contributing their world-class specialist skills to this showcase project. Exhibited during the Milan Design Week 2008, 16th - 21st April, Via Forcella 8, Milan, Italy

For many of us, table football is a game that is close to our hearts, holding cherished memories of our childhood and youth. Its popularity also reflects the passion and love that millions of people around the world share for 'the beautiful game' of football.

Probably called Foosball in the States/Canada because of the German spelling FooBball (with their funny capital B thingy giving it that pronunciation, what do you call that thing BTW?). Mind you, I'm fairly sure the Germans call it "Kickern".

can anyone exlplain why it's called foosball in the USA?

Over in the UK it's table football, which is an exact description, and in Scotland it's sometimes called
"babee foot" which is baby football.

Anyway, as said upthread, there is no glass top to put your beer on and as there seems to be no rod dampening it doesn't seem to comply with the bar room standards.

This where design so often falls down, it looks pretty but fails to perform.

see Phillipe Starks Lemon sqeezer etc etc

No glass cover?
chrome, fixed puppets?
no dampening on the rods?
I think this thing would be torn to shreds in a day, if you'd set some fanatic players loose on it..
(go to their site and watch the video, they play like little girls =] )

Looks cool, but a "deutscher meister" table is what you want.
