Foosball with Adjustable Goals

Sometimes when you play a game, you find that you're horribly mismatched against the your opponent - and the whole thing becomes no fun.  (I'm looking at you, Josh Whitten, air-hockey ringer.)  Well it turns out that a simple design feature can easily adjust each player's handicap.  Perhaps the first good idea ever from the pages of Hammacher Schlemmer, The Handicapping Foosball Table has goals that can independently made wider or narrower.  The same concept could be applied, with varying degrees of mechanical complexity, to almost any goal-based game or sport: billiards, basketball, mini golf - and of course, air hockey.  Bring it on, Josh!
