Preferred Playing Position

There are lots of positions to take at an arcade game.  Some guys grip the sides, other guys rest their hands on the control panel.  But this position, which I demonstrated while playing Ms. Pac-Man at the California Extreme Arcade and Pinball Show, is my favorite.

As you can see, I’m not only hanging my left hand off the top of the cabinet, but I’m also crossing my ankles.  Admittedly, there are only a few games you can play in this way: the Pac-Mans, Frogger, Q*Bert, and any other game that doesn’t require two hands.  Still, it is my preferred position, and I’ll jump at any chance to assume it.
