Office Foosball Tournament

Tuesday, May 17, 2005

We have a foosball table in the small conference room of our office. Games are held on a daily basis and everyone takes it pretty seriously :) This week we are having a foosball tournament with 10 employees competing. The schedule is written up on the dry erase board.

I'm the only female playing and my first match is against the President and CEO of the company!! He admitted yesterday that he's a sore loser and that he would be humiliated to lose to a girl, lol. Yikes, and did I mention it's his birthday? So, now I'm gonna feel bad when I kick his ass ;) Hopefully I'll still have a job! haha!

UPDATE: Oh how the mighty have fallen, the 'mighty' being me. I lost by two goals :( He got to practice earlier though when I was in a video conference and I had a big crowd cheering me on against the boss. It made me nervous. It was a lot of fun though, I'm still charged from the game!

E-MAIL that my gloating boss sent out to the whole company:

I AM FOOSBAL, I AM KING, I AM MOVING ON. Let no player be left unturned and no goal unjustified for I have succeeded where other failed. With courage and grace, though unpracticed, I have left my mark on the game and on the field. Ryan, put me down for the next round!

REPLY: Haha, glad to see it's not going to your head!

Happy Birthday!

A clear birthday's better to lose at foosball than to have to climb out of a cake like someone did last year...

    Aww, what a nice birthday gift. I can imagine that he would not have been a happy camper to lose a game on his birthday at all. Come on, I'm sure that you wouldn't? The extra practice time worked out well for him ;-)
