    Congrats on the kid! Now that you are laid up, you are now entering a world of pain. You are gonna be useless to the baby's needs and your wife will let you know it. These next few weeks are gonna be a lot of fun. Don't argue, yes dear the heck out of her, and get outta her way. I have been in your shoes before. Heed my words.

    Especially if she catches him on pinside updating this thread!

    Our water heater broke so I went downstairs to show plumber where it is . Crutch got stuck in carpet , took nose dive down 15 steps . Luckily other then Abrasions I’m alive . Do not , do not move pinballs by yourself. Just don’t do it !

    Dude, maybe you need to just stay seated for a couple days!

    Your baby doesn't need you throwing yourself down the stairs.

    Oh man. You're like Inspector Clouseau, Mr Bean, Lt Frank Drebin. Avoid all potential hazards until this clumsy spell wears off.

    #56 10 months ago

    damn dude, that's a story...glad all (pin included) are 'ok' and congrats on new baby

    #57 10 months ago

    Moved piano's for 17 years, If you don't have the right equipment, you'll get hurt, or worse. Pins are not a problem, for me anyway.

    Geez man be safe!! You have a kid now!
    Wait...
    Are you trying to give yourself a vasectomy?

    Christmas shirt for you...

    "Is the game okay?"
    Thread of the Year!

    Absolutely not. NOT even close.

    How soon we forget...

    https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/for-sale-baywatch-nearly-imamaculate

    Is this particular thread a funny story? Undeniably. The mental pictures and the mother in law jokes and the "first things first: is the Alien LE ok" are all great, but nothing on Pinside touches that Baywatch thread. It is miles ahead of everything else posted in 2018.

    Quoted from Oneangrymo:

    Happy to report baby came last night 6lbs 13 oz. they were only expecting 5 lbs. and also my alien is fine ! Except one of the top lights is bent ever so slightly.. that can be replaced

    My wife wants to know who was on more pain meds during the birth, you or her?

    Also, after reading that you also fell down the stairs, I'm starting to think there's some Final Destination stuff going on here...

    #61 10 months ago

    Dude your wife is seriously gonna lock the door so you cant go down there anymore now!

    hahahaha! So true. He has cheated Death twice now. Hopefully Death has thrown in the towel and moved on to the next guy.

    I feel for ya buddy and hope you get better soon. Just throw my back out yesterday morning moving an EBDLE out of a basement. Made it to about 3 steps to go and back gave out. Almost dropped it back down the steps but pulled through the pain. Spent the rest of the day on the couch and called off work for the firs time this year. Really sucked because it would have been my 6th day working. All OT time and a half.

    Gonna take a long time to heel. I’m in my 50s so not that young anymore.

    This was my first thought. Ok, second... alien? Damn. Anyway, go hire a baby nurse for the first week or two. It’s going to cost you a mint but it in the end it might save your pin collection.

    That's rough. At least it was for an EBD and not a Shaq Attack. Get well, the both of you.

    I'm a 1 man moving machine and this is my worst nightmare. Feel better!

    #67 10 months ago

    Now I gotta finish setting up Han, but I’ll have someone lift it

    Is that in your living room? I think my wife would rather have that happen to me, than to have that in our living room. Cool though!

    Oh, and congrats on the baby and death cheating!

    Can this story get any crazier??? I sure hope not because your next accident might be your last! Please just stay in bed and dont get up!

    #70 10 months ago

    Congrats on your new little one!

    Sounds like a serious accident and falling down the stairs is no way to top it off so wish you the best on your road to recovery (not too funny to me).

    But what I do think is funny is the multiple pinsiders posting that they told their wives this story! Now that is spectacularly dumb!

    How's the recovery going? Hopefully no new disasters since falling down the stairs.

    #72 10 months ago

    He can't respond. He's either changing a diaper, feeding a baby or sleeping. In that order.

    #73 10 months ago

    ....or falling down....

    #74 10 months ago

    Crushed under a collapsing mountain of used diapers.

    #75 10 months ago

    Man if he thinks that leg is bad, get ready for the first 6 months of baby life; worst... Time... Ever.
    Jesus I would have rather played Alien the whole time... And that's saying something

    Great news about Alien, and the Han Solo is badass.

    How are you doing?

    What a great community.. asking me about my leg.. you guys are great. My leg is fine thanks, more importantly .. my Monster Bash LE is on order.

    #79 8 months ago

    Great news Angry,
    Perhaps get your girlfriend to help set up and move Munsters into position, so your wife doesn't get mad at you.

    #80 8 months ago

    I empathise with ya buddy!
    To try and save my knee I had a High Tibial Osteotomy ( google it, it is brutal )
    ended up with a a Staph and Strep infection and spent xmas/ new year ( 6 weeks ) in hospital.
    On the mend now but a long way to go. Managed my first pinball game the other day which was pain but much joy.
    Beach is my next goal. Need to get crusty

    #82 8 months ago

    NSFW pic...…. hope both of you guys are solidly on the mend !!!

    #83 8 months ago

    Sorry to hear about this. I was moving an old 80's dixie narco soda machine one time (solid metal) and you know that little sticker on the back that shows the feature-list man having the soda machine tip over on him??? Yeah that was me. I somehow managed to let it fall easy though on my legs and I hobbled away with only my injured pride. Try to always have someone to help move

    #84 8 months ago

    Jeez. I didn't need to see that.

    #85 8 months ago

    Sorry for the pic, but just to show how the body is amazing at healing itself here is a pic 6 weals later after 3 surgeries and plate removed. Still a long way to go as far as walking but you got to admit it is amazing.
    I wish all who are going through battles all the very best and peace!

    40 days since your last post Angrymo. Is no news ---> good news in this case? Are you doing good now? Family all good?

    No new issues with the pinball machines?

    Now you're that guy. The guy that had a pinball machine fall on him. That's you now, that's your life.
