I go through about 4-6 aftermarket ps3 controllers a season. I've been lucky with the Wii controllers and only go through about 2. We used the Kinect for x-box so I have no controller loss there!

I forget that it's named Camden Yards, seeing as people always refer to it as Fenway South.

Are you going through the controllers because of theft or damage.
How many kids do you have using a console at once? Since there is only one controller with the screen if you have more than one child playing at a time you might find that the Wii U controller causes kids to fight over it.

Damage... we have rubber mats in front of the consoles but they drop them and they break.

This is our x-box set up.



These are our Wii & PS3 setups..





We have 4 Wiis, 4 PS3s, and 2 xbox that run from 9a-4pm every day.

(these pics were before we added the rubber mats)

CRUD.

Got called back into work on Friday night because our storage volume ran out of space and freaked everything out. Still cleaning up the mess today, so I didn't have a chance to read back more than a page or 2.

Happy Birthday Andy!

Chris - sorry to hear about your building, but glad you (and the maintenance guys) are safe.

Tim - as usual, suck it.

Also missing the turkey day game on Thursday as my DM would have me drawn and quartered if i blew of dinner to be at a game.

Not happy about Gronk either. At least he'll be back for the playoffs.
Used to be a huge Celts fan so I think the trade was worth it.

We went to the Buffalo game this season and if all the cards fall right could be planning another road trip before season end, who knows. It's a lot of fun to get a group of guys together and go on a short trip. I'll let you know when another is in the works if your interested.

Miami fans are notorious for not showing up for games. Hated going to Mets/Marlins games just to hear obnoxious Mets fans. Glad you guys enjoyed it down here. Just as long as you are not a Jets fan, Miami fans usually leave you alone.

Camden is a great place to see a game and so is Wrigley. The old Yankee Stadium was a dump but it had it's charm. Shea was just old. Haven't visited Fenway yet. It is on the list. Marlins Park is very South Florida looking and a beautiful place. Too bad the team next year are going to leave a bad odor there.

Hey nemie.

Fenway lives up to it's reputation as "the oldest ball park". It has it's charm and old time feel, but I sure would like to see them build a new and improved one. Of course that would mean even higher prices I'm sure. I think we are already one of the most expensive (and that doesn't include the $50 to park).

I'm with ya on the AAA teams playing in MLB. We still haven't solved our issues yet after finishing in last place. I'm sure I would be pretty if it were us that made that trade. Maybe if everyone stays away they'll get the picture?

At least we have our sell out streak in tact. Really John Henry? Really?
