In the last week I've gone back to playing Wii an hour or more every night. That's something of a surprise. I thought my Wii fever had broken for good (apart from last year's intense 8-week obsession with LEGO Star Wars). I really hadn't played a Wii game in ages.
But then I started seeing commercials for the new Motion Plus controller's, along with other ads for EA Grand Slam Tennis.
In the last few days I've played against Pete Sampras, Andy Roddick, and Venus Williams. And I've been Roger Federer, Stefan Edberg, Björn Borg, and--best of all--Martina Navratilova! (Though I must confess, I switched her to playing righty. I can't even play fake tennis with my left hand!)
It's pretty damn cool.
Now, if you'll excuse me, I have a match starting on Centre Court, Wimbledon...
