Lunchtime Discussion: Gaming or Girlfriends?

zacWelcome to heat magazine! In this issue, tennis hotty Andy Murray, soccer legend Wayne Rooney and O.M.G! It’s Zac Efron! SCREEEEEEEAM! OK, OK, come back it’s not heat magazine, it’s still TSA but we are going to talk about Murray, Rooney and Efron for they all share a common interest of gaming. Unfortunately for them it’s starting to get on their partners nerves.

As far back as 2008, Wayne Rooney was addicted to FIFA, playing it every night much to the annoyance of the fragrant Coleen. In the same year Britain’s top tennis player Andy Murray was lambasted by his coach for his gaming,


“He plays videogames seven hours a day. So if he is not playing videogames or playing tennis, he is with his girlfriend.”

Now Andy only has two interests as long term girlfriend Kim Sears has split with the tennis ace. Murray’s agent claimed the parting was amicable but it wasn’t long before the scandalous spectre of an affair came to light. Who was the ‘other woman’? Step forward ‘Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2’.

mw2“He would spend all his time glued to it. In the end she just got fed up with it. She wanted more out of the relationship” a ‘source’ told the Daily Telegraph.

Our final victim is floppy haired actor and all round heart throb (so I’m told) Zac Efron, who has been told by fellow High School Musical star and girlfriend Vanessa Hudgens, ”It’s either me or the X-Box.’

“Vanessa has hardly seen him. He talks more to his friends online while blasting away at aliens or whatever, than to her. Vanessa has even tried joining in but her boredom threshold is a lot shorter than Zac’s,” said another ‘source‘.

So today’s discussion – is your gaming habit causing friction between you and your partner? Has your girlfriend/boyfriend/wife/husband nagged you for the amount of time you spend gaming and if so, are there ways to involve you partner in your hobby? Zac Efron had a unique way of apologising to Hudgens when she had enough of his Xbox antics. He planted three citrus trees on her Los Angeles estate whilst she was away filming.

fruit“Vanessa was incredibly touched by the gift.” said that oh-so mysterious ‘source’ again.

Have any of you planted a couple of Tangerine trees in the driveway of your beloved whilst they were at work to say sorry for an all-nighter on Halo? Perhaps left a small bush of grapefruits on the stairs for them to discover after a mammoth Uncharted playthrough? Let us know!
