He did it from his easy chair! Maybe the Bills could get some tips from him! ('TV Goes Interactive')

It has come to our attention that some of our readers have not been spending enough time playing games. Electronic gaming is more than just a hobby, it's a way of life. How do you think it makes us feel, sweating away, making sure that you know everything there is to know about games, only to see you turning on the basketball game instead. Come on guys! We think you can do a little better. Play games and help us keep our jobs.
