Addicted to Baseball

i seem to be addicted to my video game "MLB 2006" that i play on my PS2. i am playing a season as the texas rangers, and i'm currently 39-13. each game takes about 45 mins to play and i find myself playing almost two a day. on a couple of occasions i have woken up in the morning and left for work later than normal just so i can have time to play a game. but, i have the urge to do that all the time now. i think what really drives my addiction is that the game has set goals for me to achieve. such as have a .500 team over 2 seasons. that is over 300 games mind you. a couple more examples are to lead the league in individual home runs and have an average attendance of 39k over 3 season. now we are talking 500 games to reach that one. this goal is part of the franchise mode that i'm in. i not only play, but i have to coach and run the team in every aspect as well. i will take a moment to say that i am the short stop for the ranger and i'm batting .384 with 9 home runs, 44 RBIs, and leading the league in all-star votes for short stop by over 150 votes. i guess i'm like kerri and her addiction to tetris?

i don't know about that....

do you play for days on end?
do you dream about this game?
do you find yourself being drawn to other people's houses because they own the game?
are you on medication?

(btw, you still only let 'bloggers' comment).

okay you make a good point. i'm not actually addicted. just felt like exaggerating a bit. you are addicted to tetris though.
