    I just freaking love it. Excited about the MMr. Excited about WOZ and Hobbit. Absolutely love my collection. Love the new friends I've made in the hobby. One new friend, fellow Pinsider MBT, just did me yet another solid, replacing the transistor on CSI to fix the pop flashers. And then that f*cker put up a monster grand champion score of 303M on my Avengers before going home!

    Woke up this morning with lots to do, but knowing I'll be able to go hit IM or ACDC or CSI for some quick, in your face games.

    And knowing another Pinsider friend -NJGECKO - is delivering some invisiglass tomorrow and has offered to help reconnect the head wires to my new FT (MBT offered as well).

    Can't wait for Monday, when the new "Modern Pinball" Arcade opens in midtown Manhattan! And thrilled that I can play MET, ST and WOZ on my way to the bus coming home from work.

    Damn I love Pinball! Anybody else feel the same?

    I love pinball too. I love coming home from a hard day working, shutting the door to man cave, turning on juke box and playing Metallica. Or Tron or STTNG or even Secret Service.

    I love getting packages in the mail. Stickers, mods, flyers. Love getting that semi bulky, crumpled envelope with some sort of pinball love inside.

    I love having guests walk in room for first time to: OMG. If I owned this room I'd never leave!

    I love finding new pinball videos online, of people professing their love for pinball.

    Screw'em all if they think I'm a geek. As my bumper sticker says: "It's a pinball thing, you wouldn't understand."

    Went out last night for dinner and beers with a couple friends. Filthy Nascar was there in the pub so we all played a game. Taught them how to cradle and then aim, instead of just flailing away.
    Fun times had by all.

    I love pinball, got 3 packages in the mail yesterday and have more coming next week. So giddy going to get the mail everyday. All my pins will be up and running tomorrow!

    Love playing. Love fixing. Love all the great people I've met through pinball.
    My family loves playing them, even my wife loves them. She does wish they didn't take up so much space though.

    I just got home from a friends house. He picked up a Team One wedgie this morning. Two drops of solder later we sparked it up. Then we played it all afternoon! Pinball is the best hobby! The two of us playing an almost 40 year old game and having a blast!

    I've always been into pinball but as of late, it's become obsessive. Had to re-obtain a T2 I sold years ago (this one's in better shape, not perfect but most of them aren't) and I already want another. Not sure if NIB game or a T3 even! I may go old school and get a Gorgar since that's the first game I ever played at 4 years old. Happy to be back, regardless. It's still so much better than video games.

    Can you buy these stickers anywhere......it is so true. Some of the looks I get from people when I start talking about pinball tend to make you feel like there is something wrong with you when in fact it is them that have the problem as far as I am concerned.

    I would like one of those stickers or maybe two so I can stick one in my wife's undies drawer or something as well.

    Oh, yes I certainly have the pinball love bug.

    I hear you there! I am constantly in search for the next pin to "finish the collection", kinda feel like i can't see the forest for the trees, ya know. I might be better off just overpaying, tuning out and playing, ya know?

    #16 5 years ago

    Yep, I love it rotten!

    BTW, the Gecko is heading over to my place at 10. Feel free to come on down. I have to chase everyone out around 1 though, but that's still three hours of pinball fun.

    Sorry, the bumper sticker was from Expo 2012.
