I just bought ESPN Football for the XBOX which included 2 trial months of XBOX Live, and now I'm hooked...BIG TIME! Having a nice game console has always been a bitter/sweet experience for me because none of my frinds are really into gaming, my wife isn't into gaming, and at 33 years of age, I don't have any kids. Since I never have anyone to play with, I always feel as if I'm wasting money when I invest in games and consoles. But XBL has been a dream come true for me. Since last night, I've played 3 games w/ complete strangers who handed me my jock strap on a silver platter (as my former coach used to say), and I loved every second of the experience! This is like a dream come true. I feel like a giddy little girl. Now I have a reason to get better. If any of you happen to be online tonight, my gamertag is: THE DISRUPTER Hope to meet some of you online later! I am an online gaming convert for life.
