Screw XBox 360 

All I keep hearing about is the XBox 360 and how great it is and how hard it is to find.

Well you know what? I don't care. All I wanted post-Christmas was to sit on my couch playing Animal Crossing on a new Nintendo DS. I took my Christmas loot and giftcards and drove all over creation looking for the Mario Kart DS Bundle and Animal Crossing. Finally, at about the 15th store, I found a Mario Kart Bundle in stock.

10 stores later, still no Animal Crossing. The game is sold out everywhere. And don't give me the "it's for kiddies" crap -- everytime I walk into a store and ask if they've got it, I can tell I'm about the 50th adult to walk in that day looking for it. Everyone wants it. It's like Nintendo-brand crack. It's as hard to find as the XBox 360.

So, I'm placing a bounty on Animal Crossing. If you find it at a store, buy it, and I'll pay you back plus take you to a Red Sox game this year. Maybe even the Yankees.

In the meantime, I'm going to keep playing Mario Kart.
