Review "Wii Sports" was included with the Nintendo Wii, the spiffy new electronic game platform that came out Nov. 19. "Wii Sports" is the first pack-in with any console since 1985, I might add, and being the awesome guy that I am, getting my hands on the Wii (pronounced "wee") also meant getting a copy of this little piece of software.

HAGERSTOWN - It was Super Bowl Sunday and kickoff was minutes away, but 26-year-old Tony Towne was in no hurry as he browsed Blockbuster's family section with his daughters. "I have other priorities, like spending time with my kids," said Towne, who said he hasn't followed football since enlisting in the Army in 2000. In opting not to tune in to what has long been the country's highest-rated TV program of the year, Towne joined millions of Americans who break the mold by spending Super Bowl Sunday engaged in something other than the big game.

WILLIAMSPORT - Seconds remained for the Williamsport Wildcats, who had one last chance to score against the undefeated Smithsburg Leopards. The Wildcats were strides away from the end zone. Smithsburg was winning 33-0. It was the last home game of Williamsport's season, the last chance the senior players had to score on their home field. The game was almost over. Williamsport had the ball. It would mean a lot to the team if they scored, said football dad Chris Russo from the stands, moments before the snap.
