Old Grandma Hardcore

This blog is the chronicle of my experiences with Grandma, the video-game playing queen of her age-bracket and weight class. She will beat any PS2, XBox, GameCube, etc., console game put in front of her, just like she always has. These are her stories. She is absolutely real. She lives in Cleveland.

Grandma Ama L'Italia!

Grandma and I are by no means press whores, but we'll gladly do an interview if asked. A very groovy fan of OGHC, Ivan Fulco, interviewed us for the Italian Newspaper La Stampa, so... check it out!

Grandma loved the fact that, when run through the Google Translator, the article refered to her as "The Barbarian Grandmother" which pretty much fits the bill. A lot of traffic is coming from Italy today via Italian blogs linking to the article, so we just wanted to say hello to that beautiful country.

We get a great deal of European traffic from Finland, The Netherlands, Italy, The UK, France, Germany, Austria, Sweden, Switzerland, Spain, Slovakia, Romania, Turkey and Belgium, with other countries signing on from day to day. Most send us great e-mails saying "Grandma Rocks!" or some variation of, and it's important to return the love.

Thanks everybody! More stuff coming this evening... Grandma did a little game shopping :)

    Hell, maybe Grandma will become the most famous person from our area, even more so than Drew Carey!
