The Perfect Gameroom

If you were a New York Yankees baseball fan in 1998, one of the highlights of an all-around amazing year is the unlikely feat of everyman David Wells pitching a perfect game one sunny May afternoon. The excitement was electric, the whole world seemed to be re-framed by this one person’s specific achievement. The idea that for that one day, those 2 hours and forty minutes, his pitching was perfect. Everything worked, everything in its place—magic.

While I may have David Wells’ body frame, I have none of his remarkable athletic abilities; so this is a tale of perseverance and commitment (rather than skill) over 2 and a half years to make sure every single game in my personal arcade collection (the bavacade) works perfectly. Well, the day has come, and I have evidence in the form of video below, but the real point is that for a few hours (days even? -never weeks 🙂 ) this collection can be perfect, every arcade cabinet in the bava manse works as they did back in the early 80s.

Today is a good day, even I can be a hero, just for one day!
