Virtual Exercise

I woke up this morning a little sore. My whole right side felt as though a serious workout had been undertaken.

That was not the case.

I didn't even walk the dog yesterday, my usual pinnacle of physical activity. During breakfast, I remembered why I was aching "“ I was bowling.

The repetitive swinging of a twelve-pound sphere would understandably work my muscles. But I did my bowling in the confines of my company's conference room, where we've set up a Nintendo Wii (I also played nine sets of tennis, losing all nine.)

My friend and co-worker (and superior tennis player/inferior bowler) Noah posted about how the Wii came about yesterday.

So I have to ask: is anyone else hooked on Wii?
