Battle of the Blog

After reading the post about baseball yesterday, some concerns were raised that GPT had begun to veer from its original topic: all tetris, all the time. So I encouraged Rachel to start posting her own thoughts. Here is an excerpt from a gchat convo earlier today:

2:48 PM me: hey
just sent you an invite to blog
2:49 PM Rachel: yeah
me: so?
you gonna write something???
2:50 PM Rachel: maybe
I gotta go to babysit soon
2:51 PM me: excuses
then i'm gonna post again about baseball!!!
Rachel: NOOOOOO!
2:52 PM me: hahahahahahaha
deal w/ it sister

I think it's time that the other Girls let their voices be heard...or else this blog will soon be called "Girls Play Tetris, While Watching Baseball."

Almost Baseball Season!

While tetris has helped to fill the void left by a winter without baseball, our One True Love (besides NY1's Pat Keirnan and sweatgear) is returning. It's almost baseball season! To help get in the swing of things, check out Baby Bomber Phil Hughes' entertaining blog, and recall the scene of last October when the 21-year-old pitcher had to bail out aging teammate Roger Clemens during game 3 of the ALDS. For those of you who weren't there, this photo, taken amid a sea of surly Bleacher Creatures, should help refresh your memories.

Science Confirms! Other People Dream of Tetris Too!

Guess what? We're not crazy! Turns out that according to Science, 60 per cent of people who play tetris also have dreams about the Best Game Ever. For more on this amazing phenomenon, listen to this episode of NPR's Radiolab about dreams. Also, take note that they totally copied our glowing tetris sunset artwork...

I Dream of Tetris

I've been having some pretty vivid dreams lately, but last night I had the fortune of dreaming about tetris! It was the mid 1990's and I was at a concert by an unknown pop star who started singing about tetris, surrounded by neon dancing tetris pieces. Some would say this dream means I should play less tetris; I believe it's a sign to go back in time and write a dance hit about my favorite computer game.

Rebuffed by Pat, GPT Returns to an Old Love

Pat Kiernan hasn't returned our calls or letters, and we're starting to feel the sting of a Valentine's scorn. To get over being dumped, we've decided to turn to our love of sweatgear to help heal the wound. At least sweatgear is you hear that Pat? Loyal!!!!
PS - We still love you.

Will You Be Our Valentine, Pat Kiernan?

Dear NY1's Pat Kiernan,
We love you. We love your dry sense of humor as you tell us what's in the papers each morning. We love your Canadian accent and your perfectly parted anchorman hair.
Will you be our Valentine???
Hugs and kisses,
Girls Play Tetris

Tetris: A Deeper Meaning

To the uninitiated, tetris may seem like a simple game created by repressed Soviet Russians, but to GPT, tetris means something more. It's a metaphor for community and understanding. Just as tetris blocks come in all shapes, sizes and colors, so do people. In life, things begin to come at you quickly the further along you get, and the only way to succeed is for each piece to fit together to form one community. Leave a comment and tell us what tetris means to you!
