The Facial Hair Driven Life

Bill Simmons has a recap of his 10 minute video game battle against Tiger Woods up. I'm not a golf man myself, but it turns out that the man has much more in common with those of us here at the Lemur than you may have guessed:
He has been playing video golf ever since the Atari 2600/5200 days and can't get over the fact that there's a video game named after him. Also, he never plays himself in video games. He creates two characters -- one a big, fat guy, the other a cooler guy -- and plays those guys instead of the Tiger character. He always gives the surrogate guys goatees because he can't grow facial hair so he lives vicariously through them.

I wonder if the Big Fat guy and Skinny guy characters hearken back to NES hockey?
