So I’m playing Madden 2006, and I decide to check out “Football 101”. I was hoping to learn some football and get a feel for the game. I selected the option that has John Madden teaching you the basic Football formations and plays. The computer runs the play, shows it to you, then lets you run it. It’s a very low-key way to learn how to play the game.
I try a simple play: HB slam. The halfback is supposed to take the ball from the QB and run it up the middle.
I start it, and the game runs the play on its own to demonstrate. Except: it didn’t run the way it was supposed to. The offensive line melted and halfback got pancaked the instant he touched the ball. I sat there, dumbfounded, as the computer completely screwed itself.
Then John Madden spoke up, “There. See how it’s done? Now you try it.”
Nice one, thanks John.

His problem isn't that he's dumb, the problem is that he bends the world he inhabits.
