Silverball Chronicles Episode 4: Bat Sh*t Crazy: The Python Anghelo Story
Python Anghelo was an eccentric, passionate, charming, classically educated, combative, spiteful, and caring individual. He gave his all for pinball. Python is a guy who added social commentary to his back-glass art, added Easter eggs to his work, drank a lot, fought with leadership over creating unique worlds under glass.
Python burned bridges, tossed insults, and pulled no punches along his life’s journey. He was a nut for sure.
Join us this month as we discuss Python’s upbringing, joining the coin-op industry, getting into verbal fights with co workers, drinking on boats, Steve Kordek, cows, more butchering of names, a poll joke and Python’s legacy.
