Nice! It looks like I got my 2 minutes of fame. This was the last game of Round 10 in the Pinburgh qualifying matches. Pinball Champion, Bowen Kerins provides great commentary.
It was cool to see what I was doing right, and wrong while I was playing. For instance, I have to get better at recognizing when a good slap save will help me.
At 11:19, what actually happened was, the ball rose up a bit above the flipper to where it almost jumped over it for a jumpball drain. Somehow, I got lucky enough to flip it into the lock anyway. I think I said, “What was that, Rudy?! What was THAT?!” referring to his “Rudy gulp” quote.
If you know me, you know that I never use trash talk toward my opponents. However, Rudy is a conniving bastard. As you can see, he did not appreciate my comment towards him. ^_^
“All right Mr. De Mille, I’m ready for my close-up.” Wait a minute, you can only see my hands… never mind. As it turned out, my attempt at a controlled style of play lost out to John’s “California style.”
