Waiting for the intervention.

Football addiction has taken a turn for the worse. Help needed… quickly. Wife is an enabler. Last night I decided I needed to “play” football, unfortunately I didn’t have any football games. Today on lunch, I went out and bought an Xbox and Madden ’06. Between that and my going to Greenbay this weekend for the game, you probably won’t see much of me for the next couple of weeks.

The worst part is that Boopie has been asking me to buy him an Xbox for two years now, and I keep telling him he doesn't need one. He's going to be so mad when he sees it. That and the fact I've already decided that since I'm plugging it into the main TV of the house the only time he will get to play it is when A) I am not playing it. 2) My wife doesn't want to watch the TV. D) I don't want to watch the TV. That pretty much leaves at night when he is sleeping.

I call bullshit.

You know you're going to let him play it.

Of course you'll only be letting him play against you at Madden so you can rack up a 77-13 victory on him and taunt him mercilessly, but he'll play nonetheless...

He asked to play it last night and was denied. Plus I only have one controller.

I'm just still trying to figure out how you going out and blowing $200 on a video game over your lunch break makes your wife an enabler :P

Because she paid for it.
