John Effin' Madden Football '07: You gotta Save Your Game.

Dirty's comments in my Maddenday posting got me thinking...

And then I stopped thinking and played the new John Madden Football '07...

Then the kids got up from their nap...

As they were jumping on the bed. Pushing... Shoving... Tackling... I thought I saw into their future.

The things the would accomplish. The friends they would share them with.

Their games of John Madden Football '19 30th Anniversary Edition.

I know I saw my past... Would they remember this moment? Would I?

Patrick the younger came and set his two-year-old hands on my knees. Reaching for the PS2 controller in my lap.

"Hold on Buddy, gotta save my game."

When moments like this come along, you gotta save your game.

I welcome anyone else's Madden Football memories.

Saving the game is so very important...

My memories aren't from playing the game but how the game effects my life...my father-in-law and his brother coming over and playing with my husband (while stinking up my basement), waking up early on Sunday mornings so that they can get enough games in before the 1:00 NFL game...ahh, good times, good times.

That's sweet, Phil.

I'm sure I will get some great Madden memories myself this week as my boyfriend cancels plans, goes to great lengths not to leave the house, and gets that far away "I'm not processing a single word you're" look whilst the game is on pause.

A little off topic, Guys... I have a question. A week ago I found this site:
[url=http://www.rivalspot.com]Rivalspot.com - Wii tournaments for money[/url]
They say you can play online Football game tournaments on any console for cash... had anyone tried that before? Looks like a cool idea...
Are there any other sites where you can play sports games for real moneys? I Googled and found only Bringit.com and Worldgaming.com but it looks these guys don't specialize in sport gamez. Any suggestions?
