Marlins playing video games

Okay, it isn't surprising that members of the team are video game aficionados, but this:

Some classic games never go out of style. Robert Childs, the founder and owner of Arcade Game Sales, knows this and has built his business around refurbishing and re-selling classic arcade games such as Ms. Pac Man and Donkey Kong.

''The classic video games are just more fun. Today's games have too many graphics, and despite their elaborate premises, often involve little more than running around and shooting things,'' said Childs, a 42-year-old father of two. ``The older games present more of a challenge. They take practice and dedication if you want to be a champion.''


''I've sold games to Miami Dolphins and Florida Marlins as well as your average homeowner,'' Childs said.

Who would've thunk it.  I must admit, I like them too.
