Peter Moore: My ears perked up earlier this week when I read some of the news reports following President Obama's remarks at the annual meeting of the American Medical Association in Chicago. During the President's speech on health care reform, he said: "It means going for a run or hitting the gym, and raising our children to step away from the video games and spend more time playing outside."
As a father of three and someone who spends many a morning or lunch hour out on a run and/or in the gym, I applaud the President urging Americans to get off the couch and get active. Of course, I can't resist pointing out that while I've always wholeheartedly endorsed moderation in anything you do, including playing games, it may be time for the President and his family to put their Wii to good use and fire up the 30-Day Challenge with EA SPORTS Active. This is a "game" even the President may not want to "step away" from.
