Skee-Ball Endures in a Computer Era
I’m not really a carnival guy.
"She loves Skee-Ball. Me too! I wish I had a machine at home."
When I was a kid, there were some rides I waited for every year. As for the games, my parents thought they were a waste of time and rigged. Over the years, inspections have removed most of the rigging threats and my daughter liked the games more than the rides. She was buzzing around a computer at 3 and editing videos at age twelve. She’s from the first really technologically savvy generation and, yet she loves Skee-Ball. Me too! I wish I had a machine at home.
This morning, I saw a story about how Skee-Ball has endured from the days when many Americans were still traveling by horse and buggy. I look forward to this year’s round of fairs and a few rounds of the game.
