A Wii Rest

No, Wii didn't abandon the Wii Personal Trainer Challenge ... Wii just took a Wii rest ... and played Wii NFL for days and days and days ... in actuality, it's difficult for me to type because my fingers and thumbs are not accustomed to the keyboard - they long for the remote and nunchuk and I can barely move my left thumb ... it feels oddly displaced without the nunchuk button.

Wii also watched NFL football, which is a difficult transition because Wii attempt to control the outcome of the game by using our Wii remotes and nunchuks, even if they are no longer in our hands ... ours wrists flick in an upward motion to snap / hike the ball, our arms extend outward to throw passes, and our thumbs are permanently positioned in a pushing motion to control the movement of our players ... as if ... alas, the Steelers are not in the hunt this season ... but they live on in Wii NFL ... and continue to dominate their opponents ...

I thought that the sensation of wanting to control the "real" games with our phantom remotes would wear off after a while, but it hasn't ... yet ... and it is funny when Wii realize what it is that Wii are doing.

Wii will continue the Wii Personal Challenge at some point ... today ... no really, Wii will ... but until then, Wii will be playing Wii NFL ... over and over and over and over and over ...
