I personally think there are a bunch of scams going on.

You've got be a real spaz to send the thing flying. Seriously. I've spent about 4 hours on Wii Sports since launch and I just don't get how it could happen.

And bowling? What are people doing? If I launched mine during bowling it would smash straight into the ceiling.

EDIT: I'm sorry. I've relooked at the picture and call BS. That's a huge trail on the screen. And the trajectory is impossible IMO. If he threw the thing head on, that Wiimote would explode in a million pieces on impact. And if he released on an upward trajectory, as I stated earlier, it would smash into the ceiling.

While I do agree with you and thing there are going to be scam's. I really think this guy is a spaz.

So far they dont plan to sue, they are telling a story (see 2nd link). Still I have to agree with you ... bowling? I can maybe see it on sword swings but bowling?!?!
