Bowser leaves EA, joins Nintendo as Vice President of Sales

Wrote it for the headline

Business! Yes, some exec hopping from one game company (Electronic Arts since 2007, most recently as Vice President of Global Business Planning) to another (Nintendo, as Vice President of Sales) is bland stuff, but when the cat’s name is Doug Bowser? And he joins Nintendo? The post writes itself!

More fun with names: failed San Francisco Giants first baseman (and outfielder) John Bowker is apparently back on the San Francisco Giants this year on a minor league deal after playing a year on the Yomiuri Giants in Japan. Weird!

I’m also wearing a Hiroshima Carps shirt right now. “Vintage,” according to the internet, because their current outfits look like boring Reds jerseys with more pinstripes.
