But Burghers, were you aware that the Pittsburgh region is home to the national headquarters of the Professional Amateur Pinball Association (PAPA) and will be hosting the eighth Professional Amateur Pinball Association World Pinball Championships right here in the Burgh this week?!
They expect over 400 players from all over the world to attend, playing on pinball machines that fill up over 30,000 square feet of space at the PAPA headquarters here. They will vie for the title of “Pinball Champion of the World” as well as a $10,000 first prize, the highest ever in pinball history.
I just have no idea what to say. Really. Except to say that I just might have to attend the awards ceremony on Sunday.
