Wii Fun - EDITED!

I am still very much enjoying playing the Wii every morning.  I'm still very inconsistent, but those little ounces of improvement are enough to keep me coming back for more.

I am especially enjoying baseball.  I think that is where I am most improved.  Just as, I am awful at boxing and I dislike it the most.

Since I am generally in the house alone playing baseball, and in trying to not be so uptight about setting a new record every time, I started some chatter with the Mii's.  The old "batter, batter, batter, swing, batter...", "easy out" and such.  Sometimes, I would want try to insert the batters name, but mostly, I didn't know how to pronounce them.

Earlier this week, I had a bright idea.  I created a bunch of Mii's.  First, I made Mii's from all my nicknames.  I have a lot and I won't get into that here.  Then I started making Mii's to represent my family.  I made Mii's from my mother all the way down to my youngest niece.

The Wii has all of us as a team, and we play against the unpronounceables.  And We. Are. Good!  It took us only one game to gel as a team.  That game ended in a tie.  The next game we stomped them so bad, it ended with the Mercy Rule, in the FIRST inning!!  

I loved it that my special needs nephew hit a home run.  My mother and 2 year old niece were better fielders than some of the pros, catching flies and tagging runners out.  It is far more fun with them.  It is like a mini family reunion each morning.

Now, all I need to do is remember that this is all pretend and not call up one of my relatives to congratulate them on a good play!!!

EDIT - The Family stomped the Unpronounceables again today.  Another Mercy Rule win, only this time in the second inning.


  1. Hahahaha yes you better watch out what you say around your family... people get in pad room for less than that LOL

    The important thing, it gets you moving, always a big plus, right?

  2. That sounds like a lot of fun, Lori! Maybe you all will make it to the World Series this year! LOL

  3. I love it! Keeps you moving and motivated and it's fun! And your family kicks butt and takes no prisoners in baseball!
