I watched a single episode of The Big Bang Theory. It was about a "Magic the Gathering"-esque contest between Will Wheaton (as himself) and Horrible Geek Guy (Sheldon?). It was obvious that none of the writers on the show had the faintest idea about how Collectible Card Games worked, just knew they were something competitive that gross nerds did. Seriously, the portrayal of a CCG was embarrassingly bad, kind of like that CSI Miami episode about Grand Theft Auto. (I'll admit, it didn't posit any theories that CCGs would cause you to go on a killing spree, but if you have to be a person like that Bazinga guy, why wouldn't you?)

Anyway, Horrible Geek Guy gets his comeuppance for liking Star Trek and Collectible Card Games, so I guess justice was finally well-served to all those awful nerds out there.

Who's up for a game of racket-ball or golf?
