#981 – Wings

The first time I played air hockey the other kid knocked the puck up off the table and it slammed into my fingers. It took me years to recover from the mental trauma. I could never get the hang of the game because I was always flinching or closing my eyes in anticipation of the pain that is caused by a thin disk of orange plastic against bone.

    I had a similar experience, but instead of fingers, it was a hard rubber ball applied directly to my face at high velocity, I never played kickball again…and I’ve retained a higher flinch rate when things move towards my face than many people will ever have.

    Forget fingers, try getting hit in the mouth with an air hockey puck! Then come complaining about mental trauma.

    You’d think Biff would put rockets on his feet, but must’ve created an invisible jetpack.

    Shouldn’t that puck be a flaming one?

    That is one nice jersey.

    Also air hockey is nothing compared to floor hockey if you play Goalie and someone takes a slap-shot from five feet away to the worst of places…

    Fingers? One time I was playing on a table where the puck seemed to be metal (it was definitely heavier than usual, and made an odd sound when bouncing off the sides). My roommate managed to get it to fly off the table and hit me in the crotch.

    …I walked funny that day… ^_^;;

    Green skates! Ha! Go Biff!

    Shouldn’t “green” air hockey boots use springs instead of blades? Hey Biff, interesting nod to the Russian hockey team/space program…

    The Russians? Oh, right. Don’t you mean The Neo-Soviets?

    The tristar and rocket and sickle?

    That’s the way air hockey was meant to be played!
