The Weekly OT #36: Craig Hodges’ Long Shot and Others

January 20, 2017

long-shot-craig-hodgesWithout a doubt, the highlight of my podcast listening this week was Open Run’s interview with Craig Hodges. He has just released a new book, Long Shot: The Triumphs and Struggles of an NBA Freedom Fighter and Jesse and Stefan talk to him about the era he covers in the book:

Craig Hodges is many things: NBA Champion, 3-point sharpshooter, social justice activist, and now, author. He joins us to talk about his days playing alongside Michael Jordan on the legendary Bulls squads of the ’90s, facing off against the Bad Boys, the ins and outs of the Triangle offense—and the visit to the White House that would change his life forever.

Most interesting quote was about the Bulls and MJ: “..and the cool part, people, youknow, love MJ to death, but we would not have won one championship without Bill Cartwright.

Conan: Exiles continues to (greatly) surprise and differentiate itself from Ark, but my concern is that it I won’t feel good after a session. Bad juju, or taking pleasure in the wrong things. Hmmm…

And this weekend is the Sea of T’ieves Alpha 2. Rare provided an infograph from the Technical Alpha before Christmas.sot-technical-alpha-infographic-jpg-large

In response to it, someone Tweeted the following.
T O B R A N’s response is an instant classic!

And if you are wondering where the “T’ieves” came from, watch this:

And if that has whetted your appetite for some more Snatch, then I suggest you watch the 24 minute Making Of.

    Trading in RL has been froze temporarily. Should be back up soon, but likely related to what we observed yesterday.

    Bummer that we couldnt connect to the servers for Sea of Thieves 😦 Was really excited to check it out! Hopefully the next session we can get a squad of 4 together.

      That is the big thing, and we really need to have four of us, so we can play in party chat without any randoms.
