    Andy, You forgot the part about tripling my qualifying score in TWO balls :). You played great in our match. What can I say… I just used your POTC game strategy & got lucky enough to hit my shots & keep those multiballs in play. I have been playing lots of pinball recently. That helped. You’ll get your shot at revenge at Pin-Masters in Vegas, I’m sure. P.S. You look pissed-off in the picture they posted!

    CONGradulations Mike Wiley> I won The 2009 Michigan Open Juniors Division and placed third in the EM division, my name, Joshua Henderson, age 11. You are smiling very well, and should be pleased to push the pinball competitive scores at higher and higher levels in the finals. I enjoyed watching the pinball playoff finals to make sure the Michigan Open was FUN. My dad gave me a choice: play more qualifying rounds or play more of Marvins Mechanical devises. I choose the latter thus assuring the weekend was FUN. By the looks of your picture, I believe the weekend was FUN for you too cause that is what it is all about FUN. Joshua Henderson
