An interesting day...

My 2 minutes of fame today! I was casted and filmed for an upcoming Pawn Stars episode. Living here in Las Vegas for over 18 years, finally had a real reason to check out the shop. Stay tuned for the air date!

    The original name for my home arcade was going to be Pon Stars. Then THAT show came out. I didn't want people to think that there was any relation or rip off happening.

    I made up a name that still had Pon in it. PonStritch Arcade!

    And I've never seen that show, but heard some stuff. Congrats!

    Thanks... It was really fun. You should check out a few episodes... It is broadcasted weekly on the History channel. They are now in their 16th season within 10 years.

    Heh. Well, I knew they would low ball me, so I DID high ball them first!

    Dont want to spoil it, til it airs. Lets just say I did it more for the experience than for the money.

    I do own an exact 2nd puck, so I wont miss it. ALWAYS have a spare tire available!!! ;)

    That's awesome...I tend to watch pawn stars and american pickers when I head to my parents house since they have cable, and one of those two is almost always on and enjoyable...will definitely go out of my way to check out the episode you're in though once you let us know the air date.

    Love that show !!! That's so exciting that you're in it.


    My favourite episode was when a gent came in with Marc-Andre Fleury's expansion-draft sweater.... and Fleury authenticated it at the Knights practice rink.



    Please follow up on the air date !!

    I cant believe I know a celebrity! You should get a special card in both walters video game series and historical events series.

    I was thinking something like that!

    You know me, I just like "cool stuff to happen", it doesn't have to happen to me for me to appreciate it, and "notoriety" is just a fun thing everyone should strive for, IMO.


    This is one of the neatest things I know of, for sure, I can't wait to see my Friend on TV!!!

    Amazing you mentioned that... After filming, me and Chumlee were chattin' about anything Golden Knights related, and he mentioned this to me! (He is a avid fan too, so he decided to keep the puck for his own personal collection)

    Fleury is my favorite player too (as he spells his name right and #29 is my birthdate) Heh.

    If you know exactly what season and episode this one can be found, Please let me know. I really want to download that one!

    It was very cool and fun. Especially because they found me!

    But, no celebrity here...I was only a VIP for a day!

    The hockey puck itself probably will have more footage, and be more famous than I will ever be! Heh.

    Since sudden fame has gone over my head in the last 24 hours, I will only charge $5 for any autographs. But, you might want to wait a week, when they will be free! ;)

    Since you obviously do not follow NHL hockey, nor understand the regular seasons point system.

    Here is a quick overall education of their 2 year history.

    Your welcome!



    1st season: Pacific Division Champions, Western Conference Champions. Stanley Cup runner up.


    2nd season: 1st Round Playoffs

    Haha, nah... I follow NHL quite intently. Saying they suck was more of a expression that I dislike the team :P
