    From Team Xbox

    Jason Giambi of the New York Yankees, one of the most established players in Major League Baseball is taking time from his busy Spring Training regimen to challenge his fans as part of the latest Xbox Live ‘Game with Fame.’ Fans that are interested in challenging Giambi should keep their eye out for the Xbox Live gamertag ‘giambiGWF’ playing MLB 2K5® for Xbox on Tuesday, March 21 between 9:00 a.m. ET – 11:00 a.m. ET / 6:00 a.m. PT – 9:00 a.m. PT.

    “There’s no better place to play baseball than New York, Yankees fans are the greatest fans in baseball,” Giambi said. “It’ll be fun to get on Xbox Live and showcase my pride for the Pinstripes. But don’t plan on me letting up against my fans, if they come inside on me I’ll turn on it and knock it out of the park!”

    I just hope that no one mistakenly selects the gamertagGlobal Thermonuclear War.”

    Kids, let go of your joysticks, get your gloves, and go play running bases, or pickle in the middle, or something, huh? All alone? Get yourself a PitchBack and go have a party. It’s cheaper, healthier, and more fun!

      A WarGames reference on a Friday morning? Does it get better than that? I submit that it canNOT!

      I loved that movie – Broderick, Sheedy, tic-tac-toe coinciding with a nuclear war…all great stuff. It was on Tv a couple weeks ago and the “supercomputers” and “advanced” technology in the movie are hilarious…

      Pitchback? What’s this? In my day we didn’t have “pitchback.” We had a WALL! And we were THANKFUL!


      Hopefully, when I become a father, I will have more than enough time (and energy) to take the kids to the park and have a catch with them.

      May they never know what a tv set is…
