I don't understand the mechanics of how they are advancing, just that they are. I was never a Foosball fan, but did like, and play Handball, a cross between Foosball and US Basketball.
We left for lunch yesterday with the score nil-nil (soccer speak). We have a leisurely lunch and pleasant conversation and returned to find the score one - nil with a few minutes left.

I'm yet to be convinced that we missed anything.
The comic strip Tank McNamara finally explained soccer in a way that makes it (nearly) watchable: assume it's a game of keep away and the whole point is to keep the other team from scoring. I was surprised at how much less boring it is when you think of it that way.
 I'd rather it be dodgeball.
