Before we check our list of listeners celebrating here on July 8th, here's what makes this a special day for everyone in the Concho Valley.

It's Video Games Day!

A day that celebrates all video games, Atari, Nintendo, Xbox, Play Station and many more that provide way too many hours of playing time on your TV.

Most baby boomers missed out on these games.  Back then, it was stick horses, Hula Hoops, doll houses, Cowboys and Indians and most play time was spent outside in the fresh air. They didn't even have sun screen.  Believe me, it was terrible.

Today's kids (both big and small) have a vast array of these games to play.  It seems the video games just keep coming.  Before you can get used to one, a new one hits the market, and of course, you just have to have it, right?

It's a perfect day for kids out of school, or a big kids off from work, to make it a video game marathon.  Why not invite some friends over to the house and hold a competition.  Just be sure you have enough controllers to go around.
