Go Get 'Em, Mav!

For decades men have fought the corded devil, the joystick, the game controller. From the evil beginnings of pong (and it's sidekick, the forked TV>Game switch), to atari, colecovision and to its' modern day incarnation - Playstation...

Men have been reduced to sofa-bound, dorito-stuffed versions of their former glory. Alongside said slumping sofas lie piles of cell phones, keychains, quarters and Big Gulps. But help is here. It's the resume, the cover letter, the savior we like to call:

Go get 'em, Mav!!!!

wait is that an Nintendo Mark One controller I see in his hand? I loved that system it got me through two deployments overseas and countless hours being on the "ready" when we were stuck in our barracks room for hours.

It could very well be, I'll bet anything it's still at my parents' house because they haven't tossed anything since about 1986 or so. Well, they're starting to get a handle on it.

Mav, you here yet? Was this the nintendo?

Yeah... that looks like an 8 bit Nintendo controller to me. I can hear the "da da da, da da da" of Super Mario Bros in my head already.

Look out for that Gumba Mav!

Wow. I didn't see this one coming at all. I guess it's only fair considering the constant badgering to look over my resume. I was most likely beating Super Macho Man at the time. Or was I saving the world in Zelda? Honestly, I really can't say. Touche' my new adversary.
