not much to tell really. I had a friend in college who was really into pinball. I started playing TAF in the student center (this was around '93) and I was completely hooked. Those were the glory days IMHO. Our student center had 5 pins that were kept in good playing condition and I can't even begin to count how many classes I skipped over the next few years because I had a rockin' game going that I didn't want to leave.
It's always been a dream to own a pin and I finally have one- just picked up a HS in good condition. I hope there are more in my future!
