Best Momentous Day

Today marks the 19th anniversary of a date upon which two important things happened:

1) My brother Greg was born
2) I used a Nintendo Power Glove for the first (and last) time.

It was Martin Luther King Day and my friend Jake came over for some Nintendo. He brought his Power Glove that he had gotten for Christmas. It proved to be super-complicated and absolutely no fun to use at all BUT, if you think about it, basically that day I was playing with the earliest incarnation of the Wiimote.

So, yes. It's a big day.

Funny you should mention the Power Glove. I just got done watching "The Wizard". Remember that one? With Fred Savage and the Power Glove and the debut of Super Mario Bros. 3. Wow, the memories that brought back...
