Toronto Star Article Published

As discussed in a previous blog entry, my brother and I were interviewed by the Toronto Star for an article about the Nintendo Wii. This article, written by staff reporter Matthew Chung, with the title 'A bad case of Wii whack', has now been published both online and in print (Sunday, December 3, 2006 issue, Page C3) in the Arts & Entertainment section.

For those of you wondering how clean my basement is as mentioned in the article, I have some photos posted at my blog entry, 'Our basement is finally clean!'. It definitely isn't a source of embarrassment to my parents anymore (at least, I wouldn't think it would be).

In the article, there is a quote that is attributed to me that I did not make (i.e. "I got overexcited to a point where I didn't really notice where (the table) was anymore") so I will be e-mailing the reporter to see if that can be fixed. Based on the article, it would appear that the above quote was made by the other person whom the reporter spoke to.

Unfortunately, the online version of the Toronto Star does not have pictures, so I will check the paper (yes, I still get hardcopy of the Star at home) to see if there is an accompanying photo with the article. If there is, I will update this blog posting with a quick scan of it.

Update: December 3, 2006 - Here is a scan of the accompanying photo that was published with the article...

Update: December 4, 2006 - The online version has been updated, the quote in the article has now been attributed to the correct person.

You should have given your brother a right cross to the head. He'd go down for the count for sure!

I wouldn't need a Wii to do that if that's what I really wanted to do :)
