Minnesota - home of THE Guitar Hero
« on: March 13, 2008, 12:02:42 PM »

And from my hometown no less.



http://www.startribune.co...tainment/tv/16645251.html

When it comes to Guitar Hero, a Minnesota teenager is on top of the world -- no strings attached.

Chris Chike, 16, is the Guinness World Record holder for the highest score for a song on the video game "Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock."

In New York City on Tuesday, competing against other gamers, Chike, of Rochester, earned 870,647 points -- or 97 percent completion on Expert Level -- for the song "Through the Fire and Flames" by DragonForce.

.............Chike said in interview with the Rochester Post-Bulletin that he has gotten a higher score playing at home. He also told the newspaper that he used to play four to five hours a day, but not so much anymore because it's not as challenging.

How apropos that the champion of a game that lets you fantasize about being a real-life rock star comes from a state that fantasizes about having a real-life football team.

Impressive to say the least, but I don't see it overshadowing the Darwin Ball of Twine.

...

You heard it here first, Vikings are going 19-0 this year. Cool Grin After all, the 2007 Vikings were the greatest team of all time, because the Pats were considered the greatest team of all time, and they lost to the Giants who got their biggest lost of the season to the Vikings ... which makes the 2007 Vikings the greatest team of all time. Thank you Shocked Grin

Fine if you want to go that route. How many times did the cowgirls beat the gints and the queens?
