The friendship started in San Bernardino. The kids from Billings, Mont., won Little League's Northwest Region there while staying in dorm rooms adjacent to those of the Ocean View team from Huntington Beach, which won the West Region on the same field. Because the Ocean View team drove to San Bernardino, it was able to pack a television and an Xbox video game console. Because kids are kids, everybody shared. By playing video games and pingpong and generally hanging out — while winning too — the teams became great friends.

Inside, the Family Fun Arcade is dark, even on a sunny day. In the back, there's a counter where you can get change, buy a can of soda for 75 cents and grab a bag of Doritos or a cellophane-covered brownie. The place is noisy, always noisy, not with the flashy whining arpeggios of slot machines or the squeals and songs common to a Chuck E. Cheese but the booms, beeps, blasts and hai-ya's particular to Street Fighter. Despite the name, Family Fun is not the typical kiddie-enticing arcade.
