Foosball VS Footbag

Foosball

On Saturday I went to the Danish Foosball Championship with Mathias Blau. We went to support former Danish champion in footbag and Mathias’ mentor Nikolai Lorenzen and my friend and former colleague Nermin.


Nikolai & Mathias

We have a good relationship with the CPH foosball club – some of them come out to our tournaments and we come out to theirs. A lot of them are weird and crazy like footbaggers. I also  think we could learn a lot from them. They have 300+ members in Copenhagen alone.

Nermin was already out of the tournament. His team had been disqualified when his teammate had a small heart attack during one of their games. Pretty crazy. His teammate was back and well when we got there luckily.

Nikolai and his teammate was just about to start a game, when we got there, so it was perfect timing. It was a great game and we had great seats. Unfortunately Nikolai lost. If I remember correctly that meant they got 7th in the tournament. That is pretty good.

Here is a video from the round after: Nikolai’s banes losing to the favorites and final champions.

They are so damn good!

After Nikolai’s loss we kicked up the pace of downing G&Ts and Beers. Mathias and I talked a bit about starting to practice some foosball. It would be cool to at least be able to hold your own and not look like a complete newbie.

Footbag

Classic Thursday session yesterday at the usual indoor spot. It was me and Nis 1 on 1 for the first 50 minutes. Then birthday boy Andreas showed up. Happy birthday Drezzy D! We managed to play well over an hour.

I had a hard time adjusting to playing inside in a hot room with shitty air and maybe also playing later, than usually (20:30). But I still feel like I played at a decent level. No real highlights though – just a bunch of good solid runs.

There was rumors that Milan Benda would also show up. Apparently he is back in CPH working. I should probably shoot him a message. He is the homie.
