Pinball wise, I did very good this year. I decided I would just let my wife and dad know what I really wanted and skip getting things I won't use like in years past. The best pinball present came from my Pinside Secret Santa though by far. Here is a copy from my post about it in the SS thread.
"Finally opened my SS gift this morning and wow do good things come to those who wait! My SS saw I had a framed WOZ translite on the wall in the gameroom, so he decided to give me a super special Pirates Prize Pack. Eric sent me a JJP Pirates t-shirt, signed Pirates mini playfield and a Pirates translite signed by everyone on the design team. Not only is it a Pirates translite, but in the nice letter he included he said it was literally the very first ever Pirates translite...it was his engineering sample. I think it's time for the signed Avengers translite to come down off the wall and for Pirates to take it's place next to the WOZ. I feel honored to have such a cool piece of pinball history like that. I'm totally blown away."
