Default comcast & wii

so comcast is advertising a free wii with purchase of "triple play". no idea whether or not it's for new customers only or if seasoned vets like myself can partake in the freebies.... however i do know what happened with my neighbor.

she signed up, and at the completion of her installation (cable guy cut the existing line and ran a new one that he just left lying on the grass. so my redneck neighbor strung it up in some trees... tucked it in the skirting... and yeah... did i mention i live in a trailer park in indiana???) the cable guy said you'll get a voucher in 6-8 weeks, then you'll have to be one of the lucky ones that just so happens to be at the right place/right time to find a wii at any of the many locations they could possibly be stocked. GOOD LUCK.

this probably doesn't seem like anything to any of you, but for me i thought it was pretty shitty. of course i don't have a gaming system... infact the last game i played was... quake... two years two-five months ago... on lappy poo who died...

Well I live in a trailer park in Kennedale, Texas - and I'm proud of it! It's cheap, comfortable, and you get a real adrenaline rush when there is a tornado warning!

But seriously, I love the ol' Badass Doublewide!


As for the comcast / wii promotion, I read about it on Shacknews or [H]ardOCP the other day. Very interesting idea although I absolutely hate it when companies do that whole voucher thing - just give me the damn thing already.
