you should be able to save friends in your wii. I did it with mariokart, but i don't recall how I did it at the moment. so if you ever see Howard Stern racing Darth Vader it's probably me and my buddy . I just picked up MLB Power Pros 2008. Very fun game! I don't think the Wii is supposed to be the platform of choice for hardcore gamers (PC will always rule there) but it's more for getting people together and playing some fun and relatively simple games.
