Off-topic from HostingCon 2007

I am in Chicago today, attending HostingCon 2007. A very interesting conference, dedicated to a market that needs to go mobile, has big issues with device compatibility and has been using open source for a long time. Now you know why I am here... If you are in Chicago and want to meet, please drop me a note. Yes, if you are hosting email... we can mobilize it :-)

Now the off-topic. Why in the world do American foosball tables have thirteen players per team?

Do foosball table manufacturers watch their daughters play soccer? Did they ever notice there are eleven players per team? Where did they get the idea that there are three goalies?

I am going to design an Italian baseball table with a square instead of a diamond and see how it goes...
