    So I got my Wii all hooked up in my basement on the big screen yesterday, Sunday. Was playing some Wii sports and a little bit of Zelda, all was well. Today, Monday, I come home from work, spend some time with my parents and eat dinner. Afterwards I decide to show my dad how fun and interactive the sports games are and fire up tennis.

    Now the ceiling in my basement is pretty low, no more than 8 feet and is tiled. This injury was %100 my fault for not paying attention to what I was doing.

    Anyways, I served a nice one and my dad returned a high blooper. So thinking I gotta reach high to get the darn virtual ball I do so with a pretty quick moving swing. Right into the nice sharp metal framing that holds one of the lights. I sliced open my right index finger reaaaaaal good. I started bleeding real nicely all over myself, the carpet and my controller :(.

    Needless to say, I went to the hospital where I recieved three stiches! woohoo!

    Just a warning to those that might get too into the game to watch them low ceilings or any thing hanging low. Now I am down 1 wii mote and 1 finger but I still love the console :).

    Pics to come soon.

    I did the same thing in WiiSports bowling. I only have a 7' ceiling, and I was doing the spin control exercise. I got to the one where the bumper goes all the way across the lane (you have to throw the ball over), I swing back, hurled it forward and up and *SMACK!*

    wow.
    so the Wii does provide real, true to life gameplay.
    Wii Sports is really close to sports that you even get hurt.
    think of those 3 stitches as the Tri-force. :D

    i think i pulled a muscle when i first played Wii Boxing. :eek:ut: :lol:

    I had low ceilings in my last house and had to move to a new house when I got the Wii so I could use the full range of motion. Just kidding... I just moved a couple months before I got the Wii. But I am glad I did now because in the living room now we have 12-17 foot ceilings. I don't think I'll be hitting my hands anytime soon.
