    Well not to say using a sick day is bad, but since im really sick... it sucks. So there I was, 18th hole of the hardest course, Pinehurst, about to make a chip shot to set up for birdie and win the Major qualifer for the first time even though it was my second time around. First was when I was hammered to only find out the next morning I played while drunk and ended up -6 after 4 rounds and thus eliminating me from the final major of the season. Anywho, the shot was crisp, contact was solid, the touch was just oh so soft. The ball started 20 feet from the hole and it leaped through the air when it landed about 2 feet past the hole, but when it landed, it had just the right amount of backspin on it to end up inches from the hole. But before i could find out if it were in the hole or atleast within inches to enter my first major the fucking shit fuck xbox 360 froze and a blue screen appeared. My first reaction was, "WHAT THE FUCK WAS THAT!!??" Then i looked at the lights and 3 of 4 were lit red. I threw my wireless controller into the couch across the room and swore some more, then i called this mexican guy at xbox customer service.

    God dammit, I thought i got one of the "good" ones...

    Atleast i get a new one for free and 3 year warranty... oh and a free month of gold xbox live

    " oNE rIng TOO roLe thEm alL..." My boy was just a victim of the " inncomplete ring of death" . He raised so much sh** over the phone they're not only sending him a new 360 plus the customary 1year of LIVE/ head set and the extended warranty, but hes getting the HALO addition. I told him he should of had them send him a new 80GB PS3....hahahaha.

    Im on sick leave too...unfortunatley its because of wrist surgery that makes my left hand numb. SO no gaming for me.

    Turbomirage; You are correct about the warranty, but Im fairly sure it only applys to the unaffected units, If you recieve a new one to replace your existing one you only get the standard.

    Carpal tunnel? If so you'll be feeling a lot better when the stitches come out, then about a week or so later when your hand gets most of its strength back about 75% then a few months later the only way you can tell you had surgery done not feeling the pain anymore. Well thats if you doctor is good.

    No carpal tunnel... Tear in the triangulated cartiledge between my wrist and forearm. The stitches are on top and hurt like a mudda ( hydrocodone perscript). The surgery was basically a debrisment and a steroid shot. The doc says its a good chance the surgery won't do anything but lessen the pain I experience during pushing/pulling/lifting. He also says it will probally be 4-6 weeks before I'm back to work.
