It was when the PS3 was 1st announced, I had to have it! I'd saved up my money and made my wishlist...everything was set. Then the unthinkable happened, I lost my job, got really really sick and had to use my extra cash to take care of the household. Christmas was fast approaching and I chose to make the family as happy as possible. Well, my then wife, son and my mom and brothers banded together... while laying up semi-sick on Christmas my wife & son along with my brothers started moving stuff in. My darling wife bought me a PS3 and every game on my wishlist and then some, my brother helped her get me a super large bigscreen w/ surround sound, and my son & nephews used their money to get me every accessory I could ever want (and painted them w/ my fav characters)!
It brought this hardened Gulf War Vet to tears like you wouldn't believe (still does), we all played video games all night and cheered...truly the best Christmas & Playstation moment ever!
Yeah, I won every event and game we played...so, what they let me win!
