Senior Citizens Going Nuts for Nintendo Wii
Thanks to Nintendo (and, let's face it, Viagra), senior citizens are having more fun than ever -- probably even more fun than you're having, since most of them don't have things like jobs, which totally get in the way.
Here's a story about a group of sprightly 60-plus-ers at the Riderwood retirement community in Silver Spring, Maryland (they actually average 75 years old), who play 'Wii Sports' like it's going out of style. The crew even threw a little home run derby last week in honor of Barry Bonds' record-setting homer, where age-appropriate prizes included baseball memorabilia. It appears that good times were had by all (except the ump).
Believe it or not, this is not the first time we've seen such video-game-playing antics among the over-60 set. In fact, senior citizens have been building up their 'Wii Sports' scores ever since the Nintendo console was released back in the Fall of 2006.
Ah, to be old again.
