Not an "article" per se, but I was driving home the other day and heard a commercial on CBS radio news from Wachovia Bank that mentioned foosball three times (in a good way, as something that's fun to do). Being that Wachovia is in a lot of states across the country, you might want to keep your ears open for their commercial as you drive. I wonder if they'll do a TV commercial using the same idea...
