So we finally did it. We purchased a foosball table. We’ve been wanting one for months, maybe years, and we finally found a great deal on a cheap foosball table after reading foosball table reviews on Game Room Mania. What a bargain!
It was delivered yesterday. Let me say one thing, however – never believe when people tell you assembly is ‘easy’ or will take ‘less than 15 minutes’ – my my! Not only was assembly not easy, I was bent over sweating for the better half of an hour. Not to mention the thing weighed a ton! Luckily this is only something that needs to be done once. I told my wife that she better get comfortable as there is no way we are moving house now, not if I have to shift that thing!
But of course, Isaac made it all better. You should of seen the look on his face when he saw the table and saw daddy playing. One of my favorite things about being a parent is introducing Isaac to new things. It’s amazing to see how mesmerized he can be by things that don’t even make me blink an eyelid. It’s even more exciting for me when he shares the same passions as I do, and this happens to be the case with one of my first loves – foosball!
Unfortunately he’s still too young to have a proper game with, but that didn’t stop him from trying! He seemed to almost be addicted to playing with the lever, seeing how the ball moved when we did. He let out a few big screams of excitement – music to my ears. Well, it’s better than the screams he does in the middle of the night.
As much as I’m enjoying these years having Isaac grow up in front of my eyes, just owning this foosball table makes me so excited about the adventures we will have in the future!
