My Wii character, Mii if you will, does much better on the basketball court when I'm not playing. Seriously. She does just fine, blocking and shooting and stealing the ball, as long as I don't try to tell her what to do.
The boys made a Mii that looks like Robb. His animated character is on the other side of the cartoon fence, watching the game, jumping and clapping.
"Look, Mommy. See him on the sidelines? He cheers for us from over there."
He does, sugar. You're right.
