Saw this on Wil Wheaton’s blog today.
I was sitting in my bedroom, playing Dark Castle on my Mac while Morrissey sang songs about how nobody understood me.
There was a soft knock at the door, and then it opened.
“Do you have a minute?” My dad said.
“Hold on.” I clicked my mouse furiously, throwing rocks at divebombing birds. I miscalculated and my little adventurer guy Duncan died. It was my fault, and I knew it was my fault, but I sighed heavily and acted like he’d messed me up. I dramatically pushed my hair out of my face and turned around. My dad held something behind his back.
“I found this book that I think you’ll like. It was written by a journalist who would play professional sports and then write about them. He played baseball, football, golf, and ...” he revealed the book. The cover showed a familiar-looking guy wearing a Boston Bruins jersey. “...he also played hockey with the Boston Bruins.”
Three things I love about it: 1) It’s about hockey 2) It mentions Morrissey 3) It’s from someone who was on Star Trek: The Next Generation. Read the whole thing here.
