This admission is better read than said: I'm hopelessly addicted to will and grace. A video game provides the ideal arrangement for someone -- like me -- whose extreme athleticism remains dormant in reality, but seeks expression just a few feet away from the couch.

You also follow this up with going to Northrend and fighting back the undead which were already shown to have fallen ...
