Wii Players Now Suffering From Wiiitis?

What is with the Wii causing so many injuries? First the malfunctioning Wii strap and now 'Wiiitis'- a condition where the shoulder becomes sore from repetitive Wii play.

CNN, reported family practitioner Dr. Julio Bonis woke up one morning with a sore shoulder and attributed the pain to his hours of gameplay with his new Wii. According to Bonis, the treatment of his self-diagnosed Wiiitis consisted of "ibuprofen for one week, as well as complete abstinence from playing Wii video games."

Although the Wii may cause a few aches and pains here and there, I can't deny the fact that it has a lot of positive and pleasurable benefits to playing the console. Not only is it being used for rehabilitation in hospitals but it's also adding excitement and physical activity to the lives of many senior citizens across the country. Wiiitis, Wiiismite-sish.

I couldn't even read the article, I'm loving the man on man love picture!! That's just the best! I think that's almost as good as the chewing gum picture you had for the spying geek squad story!

Maybe mixing up the games/hands would help that. I'm still waiting to play Wii (sad, I know), but I figure it can't be worse than actual bowling or tennis.
