I was a big pinhead growing up in the 70s. Then the 80s came along, and like everybody else, I got into video games. I went to the Vegas Pinball Hall of Fame and played a WOZ. One game, drained three balls quickly, and knew I was hooked. Came home and bought one and haven't looked back. It's restored my faith in pinball, and I look forward to many years in this hobby with other machines. I've also met a lot of great people through pinball, so I'd say it's pretty much changed my life for the better.
