Are 'gamers' going to have personal trainers now?


I can't throw a 90mph fastball in real life :-D

Probably not, you're right. And even if either of us could, it probably wouldn't go anywhere near where would intend it to.

We were in a store the other day and saw the Wii and got to try it out. It was a tennis game and I saw a golf and baseball game as well. The point I made above was made by a commercial I saw yesterday about kid dirt bikes. Basically these 2 kids were playing video games, a dirt bike racing game, and the guy on the screen sort of came to life and suggested they stop 'playing' and get out and do the real thing.

The wii boxing game is exhausting. Seriously, playing it is like doing an aerobics class. But it's fun as hell too.

Haha my mother in law who probably has never exercised or did any activities was playing. It was so funny. :-D

I finally got to play the Wii at a buddys house over the weekend, and I must say it's pretty sweet.

There's no chance I get one for Christmas, but I might get enough cash to go buy myself one and act like I got it as a gift.
