Allow me to paint this picture for you: It’s Tuesday night around 11:45 and I just got in from a little bday celebration in Uptown Charlotte. I decided to turn on Conan and started working on some skeeball stuff. Conan ended and Jimmy Fallon began. No biggie. His first guest was Ashton Kutcher. Again no biggie, and I wasn’t really paying attention as I was working on fixing a bunch of mistakes the SkeeNation interns had made during the day. And then I hear “after the break I’m taking on Ashton in a skeeball challenge and the loser has to tweet about it. Be right back!”
I looked up, not sure if he had said “skeeball” or “teeball”. My heart started pounding a bit and I wanted to call someone….anyone. But it was 1:00 in the morning and after years of drunken dials, my post-midnight weekday phone calls tend to fall on deaf ears. So I waited. And waited. And waited. And after the longest commercial break of my life, there they were – Jimmy and Ashton standing in front of two skeeball machines (praise the good lord they didn’t use iceball machines).
Jimmy obviously dominated Ashton (300 – 170). I can’t vouch that their scores were accurate as there was some shoddy camera work going on there, but it looks like little old Jimmy Fallon can hold his own on the skeeball lanes! Ashton Kutcher….not so much.
Here’s a recap from Ashton’s Twitter page during the entire thing (this guy tweets like every 5 minutes. f*cking crazy)
