Times are tough. Workers are getting laid off, businesses are closing, people aren't spending. The list goes on. So, I bought a Wii. I won't bore you with how I rationalized this purchase. Suffice it to say that I hate to exercise but I love to play. Though I have only had the Wii for a few days, I have to say that it really is fun. So far, I have played baseball, tennis, golf and bowling and I stink at all of them. I actually got winded during the baseball training exercises (overswing much?). The package that I bought includes Wii Fit, which I haven't tried yet (smacks too much of "cardio workout"). I also haven't tried boxing yet, but I might do that today. I have avoided it because it requires use of not only the remote but also a nunchuck. (I soon will have mad nunchuck skills.) So, off Wii go. Game on.
