Gaming News: "7 Hours A Day"
Posted: Wednesday December 2nd, 2009 by

Okay listen, a bit of qualifying text before we move on to the main topic. To my knowledge Andy Murray is not poking Kim Sears' mom. And despite my caricature he does not look like Fievel from American Tale.

So anyway British Tennis Star (and by British I mean Scottish), Andy Murray, got dumped by his girlfriend of 4 years, Kim Sears, because of an apparent "addiction" to the PS3. Mysterious "inside sources"... Oooooo **wiggles fingers mysteriously** ...point more specifically at Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. It seems when he wasn't out doing tennis stuff he was playing the game upwards of 7 hours per day. One would assume that between tennis obligations and the 7 hours a day of MW2, Murray wasn't leaving much time for Ms. Sears. So she bolted.

What I'm trying to get at here is that it seems somewhat silly to leave someone over playing a game. There are much, much better reasons. Now I'm not in any way trying to diminish the quality of feeling alone in a relationship. That sucks and can be a big problem. But if it's a video game there's a relatively easy solution: inject yourself into the gaming habit. Sure it might not be you bag, but is it somehow a worse option that walking away from someone you love?

Now obviously, I don't know exactly what went on in their house. She may very well have picked up a plastic penis controller and tried to frag his ass to get his attention. But somehow I doubt it. They're both young and certain wisdom comes with age.

Andy's reps, when you read this comic... it was a joke dammit. If it had been Roger Federer, he would have been spending an hour a day staring at himself in the reflections of his championship cups/plates. If it had been Rafael Nadal, he would have been spending an hour a day picking his underwear out of his ass.

Yeah that's right you jackasses, I watch tennis.
