Thoughts Regarding Kobe Bryant's Last Game

TEXT VERSION / SCRIPT NOTES
Hello and Welcome to the Basement...

There are some things about sports that are universal, if a guy remains on a team for his entire career, he becomes a legend for that team, regardless of how good or bad a player he was. Now if he wins championships and other awards, he comes an iconin the sports league he plays in... and then starts being compared to those who proceeded him... and a whole lot of hoopla is then surrounding his 'final season' and 'finale game'....

We've seen this quite a bit recently, in particular with the New York Yankees and the retirements of Derrick Jeter and Mariano Rivera... but the NBA hasn't really had that big 'farewell' tour for any players in recent years.... and thus when Kobe Bryant finally announced his retirement, they got license to print money... or raise ticket prices to get that printed money (I kid... I kid... or do I?)

Anyway, I had the Lakers game on last night, and I find it hilariou…

Lets Play WWE 2K16: MyCareer and A Massacre on Twitch

Image
So after a many months absence I've gone back to Twitch, and had a pretty decent stream of WWE 2K16, at least when compared when streaming with OBS several weeks ago. But then the stream died after an hour of gameplay, actually when I was going for a second match in the Austin Showcase mode. Tried to restart it but it wasn't catching.Weird.
Still... it does expose my monitor of being 4:3 instead of 16:9, yes I can record video in 16:9 but not stream... go figure...
Anyway did a few matches in MyCareer mode with Frankie 'Big Ham' Franco, where I get jumped by Kalisto (really?), have a back and forth match with Finn Balor and make short work of Kevin Owens... I would've continued by since I was going to face Owens again, I figured might as well go to the Showcase mode...
And this is where I have problem with it, the 'recreating of matches' ends up with either long cut scenes (as seen here with the Austin vs McMahon match from February 14, 1999) or quick time…
