Pinball Champs Are Made, Not Born
Friday, March 12, 2010 16:28 GMTNEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) You dont have to be born with talent, skill, or human DNA to become a champion pinball player.
While not everyone can be a pro athlete, all it takes to be a pinball champ is willingness to play according to Max Blum of the New York City Pinball League.
The league, which consists of 35 pros, sets up tournaments across the country where ranked pinheads battle it out in ball play.
Blum, whos ranked No. 2, says it doesnt take much to get to his level. In fact, a person can be from outer space and still kick butt.
He explains, Pinball is a funny thing. You can come from the moon and you can play pinball. Its not like the luge where you need a lot of experience.
Even with extraterrestrial powers on someones side, practice does make perfect.
Blum himself plays with one of his 21 pinball machines to get in tip-top shape.
