Achilles WiiItis Injury was predicted
It was last March when I added a Nintendo Wii to our playroom and wrote “Nintendo Wii Replaces PE”. In my post I predicted, “ I’m either going to lose weight or I’m going to pull a muscle.” Well, I was right!
I really expected I would aggravate and old tennis elbow surgery but instead the diagnosis is Achilles Tentonitis. Not only is my Wii usage restricted but I now have a huge black air cast up to my knee. I’ll also be on crutches for the next week or two. Apparently playing a vigorous game of Nintendo Wii Tennis in bare feet may not have been a good idea.
It’s probably impossible to prove the injury was caused by Wii Tennis. I can tell you, as an old guy who spends most of his time in front of the computer it’s still the most strenuous activity I’ve done in the past week.

black blob above the heel isn’t suppose to be so big
