Stereotypes be damned: Why gamers make excellent athletes

Gamer's Guide to Life.com, Monday 25th April 2011: Copyeditor Greg Mengel stands up for the rights of an endangered species, the gamer-athlete, and points out why success on the football field may equate to success on Battle.net.

GGTL: "Technological advancement blurs the line between jock and nerd a little more each day, and that's a terrific thing. After all, whether they're attempting to solve a puzzle using a gun that creates portals on their PC or striving to kick a ball through a net on a grassy field, both jocks and nerds are doing the same thing:

They're playing games." (Culture, dance dance revolution, Kinect, Playstation Eye, Wii Fii)
