"I hope this information hasn't come out too late."

Before his resignation in late 2017, Uber's then-CEO Travis Kalanick faced more than his fair share of scandals. But by far the most (read: least) important of these was Kalanick's oft-repeated claim that, at one point, he "managed to rack up the second highest Wii Tennis score in the world" (Uber.com archived) .... Ars dug deep to get at the truth of this claim, publishing a 3,000-word expose that proved definitively (read: probably) that Kalanick was really just confused about what it means to have a "high score" .... Now [...] new information has come to light that has the potential to revolutionize our understanding of this important (read: pointless) story yet again. Behind the 12-year-old Wii Sports hoax that briefly fooled the Internet (Ars Technica)

I love this whole saga, and am glad they followed up on it. Talk about showing how petty and dumb Travis is.

TIL I have (had? it's been like eight years) the world's highest skill rating on Wii Tennis. So I've got that going for me, I guess.
