    I like getting a little animated when I play my pins (I have all EMs), and I have certain things I say out loud when I’m playing at home. When I get “same player shoots again” I yell “Free Ball!” When the Gator Ball is released on Nip-It, I say “Multi-Ball!” When I spin the captive ball spinner on FAN-TAS-TIC, I’ll sometimes say “Round and round she goes!“ (a la Cyclone).

    I was wondering if I’m the only one crazy enough to do this (I only do this at home, not at shows or on location). Anyone else do this or something similar?

    There was a whole set of lingo where I learned to play that I've mostly forgotten. Some I remember:
    - Point ball: an add-a-ball extra ball for reaching a scoring threshold
    - Sife: Self Inflicted Flipper Error
    - Weebles Wobble: hitting a drop target but not hard enough that it drops
    - Cavity: hitting the gap caused by a dropped target between two still standing targets
    - Lazarus: getting a lucky bounce so the ball comes back into play after draining between the flippers

    Ive been playing an Evel Knievel EM I restored, and it has a rather loud buzzer at 100K plus lamp, I cant help yelling "Over the Top" when I achieve it at the clubhouse where it is set up.

    The only things I yell out when playing pinball are expletives.

    When I drain I yell “FUCKING SHIIIT” in the Sopranos voice.

    That reminds me of another one. Once when I was playing a pin with @sirscott , the ball went down between the flippers and bounced back up into play, and he said “Happy Birthday!” I’ve been saying that ever since. Thanks for sharing!

    “Over the top!” is a good one, I’ll have to add that to my “repertoire.” I used to try to set off the buzzer just about every time I played a Freedom I used to have (but I rarely did). That buzzer is a great feature!

    I like to yell callouts from modern games while playing EMs. Shoot the maxed out bonus collect, "SUPER JACKPOT!"

    I only do two different things when playing pinball at home and something major occurs - I either yell "YyyyyyESSSS"... or &#%$*@!!!

    Another goofy thing I like to do with one particular EM for some reason. After the last ball drains, while it's counting the bonus I always turn and walk away waiting to hear if I hear the "match" knock, then I do the "Yyyyesss!!!" thing, which is especially nice if I didn't win any credits during the game.

    I might make the comment,
    if someone bounces or nudges or pop bumper directs a ball
    backwards up thru a rollover lane,
    Saying "greeked it".

    that and the usual expletives and joyous retorts when either failing to or accomplishing some feat.

    If I hear the match knocker, I’ll sometimes (sarcastically) say “I matched!” which obviously doesn’t mean a lot when all my pins are set up for free play.
