Spin Cycle--Fanatic

The Spin Cycle this week is about being a fan.  Of something, anything. I am not really a fan of anything. I'm not big into sports.  On year I had no idea who the teams headed to the Superbowl even were.  I don't follow baseball.  The only thing I know about the World Series is that there was an earthquake during it in Oakland when I was in high school.  yeah, not a sports fan at all.
I don't fanatically follow movie stars.  The closest I get to being an avid fan of anything is probably The Big Bang Theory.  I catch the new episodes on TV or on line.  I watch the fan clips on YouTube.  But that's about the extent of it.  Truly, I'm just not fanatical about much of anything.
Perhaps I can go with the video games I really like to play.  It all started with Doom.  I loved playing Doom after a particularly trying day of serving customers when I worked in the deli of a local grocery store.  Doom let me kill several demons, which was very satisfying and stress relieving.

Not long after this we discovered Tomb Raider.  I really enjoyed playing All the Tomb Raider games until the first PlayStation 2 game.  That one coincided Turbo's arrival and I just didn't have time to get into it.  I never really got into it.  I sort of missed the next few Tomb Raider games, but have recently got back to some of the remakes for Wii and Xbox.  I just don't have time to devote to playing.  Small boys demand my time more often than not.

I am, however, excited about the next Doom release.  Doom 3:bfg is going to be available on Xbox and I'm looking forward to trying it out.  It may become a nice stress reliever, especially given that it comes with the classic games Doom and Doom 2.

So if anything I am semi-fanitical about video games.  Not wildly, avidly or die hard, but I do enjoy them.
What  are you a fan of?
Go see Gretchen for more fan spins (oh that sounds pun-ish doesn't it?)

  1. Back before Jude was born I used to obsessively play a PC game called Diablo. I think it was much like Doom. I ended up with Diablo III, and I'd spend HOURS a day playing this silly thing, shooting demons and saving the underworld. It really was a great stress relief!

    You are linked!

  2. I'm the opposite - I become a fan (or obsessed) so easily with stuff... The biggest being Ottawa Senators hockey, and Wade Redden. But even actors, bands, singers, TV shows... it takes so little to suck me in! lol!

  3. Oh Lord, when I was doing the Farmville thing on Facebook I was obsessed. Luckily I quit cold turkey :-)

  4. i had one son who was the video king...never rubbed off on me but I really wasn't invited...the other 4 males are sports obsessed and because they talk about it all the time i know stuff i don't even care about...
    but give me lunch with the ladies anyway..
    I am your newest follower..pls follow back if you can.

  5. I am terrible at playing computer games! I SUCK! My kids don't even ask me to play with them anymore. Neither does the husband, we must be missing a gene or something.
