A video game? Doesn't even come close to a visit to your Pink Shoes...

OK as the big brother let me explain. Virtually all male actions can be explained by one of three desires.

1) We want to be Arthur “Fonzi” Fonzarelli. Think about it, he wears jeans, a T-shirt and a leather jacket everywhere. He fixes mechanical things by hitting them. He is constantly surrounded by a bevy of beautiful babes.
2) We want to be James Bond. He gets really cool toys. He get absolutely destroy his enemies (by firing heat seeking missile out of his Aston Martin) and then make some dry comment. He gets to travel all over the world. When he isn’t working he spends his time drinking and gambling. He constantly has lots of luscious ladies vying for his affection.
3) We want to be Joe Montana (You can substitute Tom Brady, Derek Jeter, John Elway, Michael Jordan or Brady Quinn in here depending on age and Team affiliation.) They all have millions of adoring fans, are treated like royalty and get paid millions of dollars to play a game. Oh and they all have incredibly attractive girlfriends or wives.

I will leave it to you to figure out which one of these makes guys spend hours playing sports video games.

Living life vicariously, I would assume. Men! Or isn't women playing? I only typed 7 words but made two assumptions. Bad, very bad!

I love your brother's explanation.

NCAA Football and NFL games both mystify me. One time, I was dating this guy, and we went back to his place TO HAVE SEX, and he decided to play his Madden game first. WTF? This is SEX we're talking about here. SEX, I tell you! SEX!

It's in the male dna to want to conquer everything, girls, sports, and video games included. As michael pointed out, we all want to be joe montana.

My theory on the specific attraction to college football is that most guys went to (or are going) to college. So it's more accessible than the NFL. It's one step from high school.
