Asteroids in Stedmans

I remember my first exposure to a stand up arcade game that I actually played was Asteriods in the old Stedmans store a strip mall called Spruceland. Stedmans is like a Saan or K-mart but that closed when I was in high school. I remember I would stand there for hours watching people like Marty and Andrew playing the game. I remember Marty wrapped that score, this game only went to 99,990 points and it would wrap around to again. I also remember Andrew was doing a ship hunting mission (where you just leave an asteriod and just gun after the alien ships). He was getting cocky and he was rubbing his nose on the screen. He got distracted and he hit his head on the top of the machine. He was dazed long enough to get killed.
