The Overwatch League is in its first season! I caught the first Saturday’s matches, although I was a bit late for the first game. My team, the LA Gladiators, had its match last, so no worries there.

Seoul Dynasty versus Los Angeles Gladiators

The Gladiators made a proper entrance:

I’m not posting the results here, but all the matches were fun to watch, with the last one being super fierce. Seoul has one of the best, and most experienced Overwatch teams in the league and the Gladiators didn’t slack off. The videos of the entire matches should be up at https://overwatchleague.com. Looking forward to next Saturday. 🙂

It’s tough to get up when one has had a tough time sleeping due to a cold. That’s me this morning.

Here is a rule to remember in future, when anything tempts you to feel bitter: not ‘This is misfortune’, but ‘To bear this worthily is good fortune.’ – Marcus Aurelius

Today’s the first day of the first season of the new Overwatch League. I’ll be trying to watch as much of it as I can online, and then in-person this Saturday. I’m rooting for the LA Gladiators. Shields UP!

I started reading The Magician’s Nephew again last night. I’m going through the Chronicles of Narnia in their intended order to see if it feels like a smoother flow than the published order. We’ll see.

“Where’s My Super Suit?”


That line from The Incredibles totally caught my eye in the WordPress Reader, so I stopped, and gave it a read. It then further drew me in since I’d heard some of the rumblings while I was wandering around the Anaheim Convention Center area during this most recent Blizzcon conference. There was a rumor circulating a bit that the just-announced new game in the works, Overwatch, was just the remnants of the scrapped Titan project. Now, since I had heard otherise, from a person who had friends on the Overwatch team, I felt the need to pipe up and comment. You can check out my comment at the linked article above, or you can jump to the comment, and the reply by the author by visiting this link.


There’s not been official word yet on what happened to Titan, and I believe it will be quite some time before there is. What, dear reader, do you think? Let me know by commenting or posting.
