Played some Wii for the first time last night with a family in my small group. I've never been a big video game guy (except for some old school Atari).
But last night:
Rocked it in Tennis.
Crushed it in baseball.
Severely humbled in bowling.
Got beaten up by a six year old in boxing (but not before accidentally actually punching him while trying to figure out the controls. Whoopsie.)
And now I have a new injury I am officially dubbing: Wiiitis Shoulderitis.
I lift. I run. But Wii kicked me where it counts and my shoulder has ached all day.
Props to the imaginations that saw a way to merge exercise and interaction with the passivity of video games. They've reinvented a cultural experience.
