Obama, Daughters Play Wii for Christmas

Our sister-site GameCulture notes that Malia and Sasha Obama received a Wii for Christmas and the Prez-elect himself spent some time with the bowling portion of Wii Sports.

The original info appeared on a New York Times blog:

Mr. Obama said he’d have his hands full attempting to rescue the American economy. But he has gotten in a little practice in bowling lately on the Nintendo Wii his daughters received for Christmas. Mr. Obama, who famously struggled in bowling during last year’s Democratic primaries, said he performs better in the video game.

    A politician playing video games? The president elect participating in a modern trend?

    Cool, unfortunately it’s going to continue to be used to bash whichever is the opposite party.

    Wii sports is a family tradition at this point. I didn’t bring it this Christmas and my aunts and uncles were disappointed (my grandfather asked me in advance to bring it on Thanksgiving, esp since no one wanted to watch the Lions game)

    I saw a standup comic on tv the other day talking about his mother becoming an expert at bowling, and finding out that she’s developed quite the smack talk. 😛

    Here’s to the hope someone meets them online, and plays an epic game of w/e with them.
