Wii Have a Problem

ACB News writes: "Tiger Woods, Maria Sharapova, Derek Jeter – they're athletic superstars, the envy of millions. The Nintendo Wii system gives you just a tiny taste of what it's like to be them. But as ABC2 News Investigator Joce Sterman found out, it also shows you there's a big difference between playing the game on the field and in your living room.

The grace, the skill. There's a reason the professionals are getting paid to play. It's simply not as easy as it looks. And as we've found, there's a big difference between reality and wii-ality. Anthony Williams knows that all too well. He's on the disabled list, off the roster after hurting his shoulder while pitching the biggest game of his life. He says he was, "Throwing the ball 90 mph, trying to get it up to 100 miles per hour." The only problem is the curveballs that landed him in physical therapy weren't covered in cowhide. Instead, they came from a plastic coated remote". (Culture, Wii)

Might I be the first to say "DER!!". Use some finesse and don't start flailing around like a jackass and you might not get hurt.

First it was a fad, then was healthy for you, and now its not that good for social activites. These videos look painfully set up and for illustrative purposes.

It is not news
it is trash.
We know, that retards could everything and their injuries when playing wiisports are nothing spectacular.
May be this retard guy must sell Wii and buy smth more simple for his weak brain?

I hate these people...
A note to all of you who do the following:

Swing the wiimote as hard as you can during tennis
Continuously let go of the wiimote when bowling
tear a rotator cuff when pitching in baseball

you are all retards and should just stop playing with the wii before wiifit comes out in america. I really dont need to read stories about someone jogging into their TV!

(sigh, its gonna happen too, just wait....)
