This weekend is the Michigan Pinball Expo. It's held at the Oakland Center at Oakland University and is $15 for a day pass. Once you get in, there are TONS of games to play, most of them free! And if you're feeling lucky, you can even compete on some of them. 
We got a chance to talk to the man in charge of it all, John Kosmal. See what he had to say!
Did you know that pinball was illegal in most big cities in the U.S., including New York, L.A. and even Chicago (where the game was started), from the 1940's through the mid '70s? It is still outlawed in some places, but luckily it's legal in Michigan! Pinball was invented in the 1800's and the best selling pinball machine of all time is still 'The Addams Family' machine that was made in 1991.
Well, there is a little bit of pinball knowledge to fill your brains with before heading over to win some games at the expo! It's supposed to be stormy out all weekend so you have no excuse! We had tons of fun, even if we do suck at actually playing them.
