Skee-Ball Centennial Alley Edition

Skee-Ball Centennial Alley Edition

Okay, so let me take the Skee-Ball conversation a little bit further here. When I was a kid our church would host skating parties at the local United Skates of America roller rink.

Cue my best Chandler Bing impression: “Could there be a better name for a place to roller-skate?” I think not.

Let’s face it – I was short and clumsy, so the skating wasn’t really my thing. But playing the bank of Skee-Ball machines they had? That was a different story. I still remember my dad flipping quarters over the wall to me on his way around the rink. That’s a good memory, Dad.

Well, in researching my Ramp Champ post for earlier this week, I stumbled across this amazing fact: you can buy a Skee-Ball machine for your home. Now, these machines are about $6,000 – but that’s worth it, right? And you can buy this ridiculous 100-year collectors’ edition.

And don't you dare buy the 10,000-points-for-the-corner-shot abomination.

Side note: I wonder how many of those redemption tickets you’d have to earn to be able to buy your own Skee-Ball machine. Probably like three billion or something.

I’m not sure how I’d get one of these Skee-Ball alleys down the stairs to my basement, but I’m willing to try. And as for financing… hmm, which kid is least likely to go to college?
