Danny Backglass: A True Pinball Champion

Posted: April 6th, 2008 by ORBIT

Danny “Backglass” Belrose was the undefeated winner of the Portland Pinball League tournament Saturday at Ground Kontrol classic arcade.dannyb1.jpg

Backglass, who has been playing pinball for over 20 years, finally ended his streak of poor performances on the tournament level. He defeated all comers on Haunted House, Kingpin, Pirates of the Caribbean, Road Show and then ended his reign of terror by putting his initials on the board during the championship round of the Simpsons.

“When I got to the final round, all I was thinking about was Michael Jordan, Albert Pujols, and Wayne Gretzky,” Backglass said. “I even went to look at Jordan’s picture on Space Jam, but apparently they got rid of that piece of shit months ago.”

Backglass would like to thank all the members of CFF for their support, as well as Kashi Vai, Sid Vicious, Eddie Van Halen’s striped guitar, and Douglas Jeffers.

    Congrats, Backglass!

    I kind of saw it coming: I won the season, so in the tournament that seeds me in the first round against whomever is ranked last. And a last place ranking doesn’t mean a poor player – it means a walk-in. I wish I could have done better defending my title from last tournament. But ah well, it was still fun. A brother won it, and my good friend and housemate got second – can’t hardly ask for more.

    Everytime someone posts something, Rom has to talk about himself. I think he’s insecure. He should be.

    I can’t help it that I’m really fascinating and awesome. Every time I talk to people they are all like, hey rom, what have you been up to? tell us another great story about yourself, please. And so I oblige, and divulge the fantastic details of my exciting life. Don’t be jealous that you’re not along on the rom-train to killerville. just be sad.

    What, was Herb betting you that you’re a crank and that I have a sense of humor?

    holy shit you girls need to back up and take a long look. Starting to sound bitter, maybe putting up scores would help. I played shrek, grand champed
    on ball one, next game only third, but played annies ball three. from under a million up to 205 million. grand champ, again. This left me no time to dis
    my fellow ballers. think about saying something nice the next time you find yourself typing @ six in the morning. nice nice nice. repeat after me, iloveddt

    I have to agree. The early B gets the GC’S. 8.5 Mil on the Roadshow. 1 mil away from the world record. DDT-Shrek master. Herb, World Poker Tour backglass king. Put up some gc’s. I’ve been seeing a lot of HPF’s around. JDR is a crew in himself.
