Skee Ball

One game I love to play in the arcade is Skee Ball.  It's similar to bowling, except it's played on an incline and with a fist sized ball.
The original Skee Ball game was invented in 1909 in Philadelphia, PA.   Skee-Ball, Inc. is located in Chalfont, PA.  Philadelphia and Chalfont are about 1 hour driving time from my home.
 The game show "The Price Is Right" has a game called "Super Ball" which originated from the Skee Ball game.
 Skee Ball is becoming a competitive sport. Leagues are forming in Washington DC and the Carolina states.
 For now, I will continue to enjoy playing in the arcade.
 I think my nephew could possibly earn a spot on a professional team...
