It’s that time once again for us to discuss what’s happening in the world of Video Games. We are starting to get into the hype for E3 2016 and some small details are beginning to come out about what could be revealed at the show. This week, the big one is more rumors spreading about Microsoft having new hardware and even a new controller to unveil at E3, but that’s not all as Microsoft is doing a big fanfest at E3 and even an ID@Xbox event for May.
There’s also the announcement that we shouldn’t expect Nintendo NX to be sold at a loss, details on the new Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare, Lara Croft casting revealed for the Tomb Raider movie, FOX and possibly Disney pulling out of Comic-Con and more.
Marc talks about some Duck Game and Crypt of the Necrodancer as well.
Comer and Radulich review the Mockingjay movies!
The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1
Katniss Everdeen finds herself in District 13 after she shatters the games forever. Under the leadership of President Alma Coin and the advice of her trusted friends, Katniss spreads her wings as she fights to save Peeta, along with other victors and a nation moved by her courage.
The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2
Realizing the stakes are no longer just for survival, Katniss Everdeen teams up with her closest friends and allies, including Peeta, Gale, and Finnick, for the ultimate mission. Together, they leave District 13 to liberate the citizens of war-torn Panem and assassinate President Snow. What lies ahead are mortal traps, dangerous enemies, and moral choices that will ultimately determine the future of all of Panem.
Sometimes I think that would be easier to write about baseball than to write about crossfit, but that will be a whole different blog (which probably I’ll keep in mind). But right now it is all about the second competition of the CrossFit Games, they were held in summer time of 2008, and they were at Dave parents’ ranch in Aroma, California.
This time they gathered around 300 athletes competing in four challenging workouts. Big difference from last year, they went from 100 fans to 800 spectators, and they were better prepared for this competition, in other words the ideas were coming together of what they wanted to achieve.

The Total Tutor Neil Haley and Coach Karen Hall will interview Pitt Football and NFL Star Rod Rutherford.
ROD RUTHERFORD, a two-time All-Big East quarterback during his accomplished Pitt career from 1999-2003, returned to his alma mater this past spring as adefensive assistant.
Rutherford, who spent last year as secondary coach at nearby St. Vincent College, will serve the Panthers as a defensive assistant. His positional focus will be with the linebackers.
Rutherford finished his collegiate career as one of the most prolific signal-callers in Pitt and Big East history. As a senior he was a unanimous first-team All-Big East selection after setting five conference records.
He additionally set or tied seven Pitt marks, matching a pair of longstanding records established by the legendary Dan Marino, including single-season touchdown passes (37) and consecutive games with a TD pass (19).
Rutherford finished his all-star senior year ranked among the country's top 10 in three different statistical categories, including points responsible for (tied for fourth, 18.0 pts./game), passing efficiency (157.4 rating, eighth) and total offense (294.5 avg., 10th).
Following his 2004 graduation from Pitt, Rutherford went on to play two seasons in the NFL. He spent the '04 season with the Carolina Panthers before joining the Pittsburgh Steelers for their '05 Super Bowl championship campaign. In 2007, Rutherford played for the Hamburg SeaDevils of NFL Europe.
Rutherford owns his bachelor's degree in social sciences. A Pittsburgh native, he graduated in 1999 from Perry Traditional Academy, where he was a standout performer for the Commodores in football, basketball and track.

Donald Trump enjoyed Cinco De Mayo with a taco bowl from the Trump Tower Grill. Then took to twitter and voiced how much he loved it. https://twitter.com/realdonaldtrump/status/728297587418247168
Evan and Troy are not going to rant on how they feel about the taco bowl, but they will talk about the game fours happening in the NHL, and the NBA playoff series between the Miami Heat and Toronto Raptors. The St. Louis Blues and Dallas Stars are battling in a pivotal game four. The Blues lead 2-1, and a win gives them a clear advantage to the Western Conference Final. A Dallas win would give them momentum to make the series a best of three. The Nashville Predators are one of two wildcards (New York Islanders) that advanced to the second round. After being outplayed in the first two games, they responded with a big game three win. Should the Predators pull off a game four upset, it would put all the pressure on the San Jose Sharks.
The Miami Heat and Toronto Raptors will battle to the end, in their second round series. The Heat took game one and the Raptors look to even the series. Listen in and call the show with your thoughts.
Join us for our pro talk segment on Sports With The StatMan on Thursday night as talk about the Stanley Cup Playoffs and Major League Baseball.
The Islanders have their work cut out for them, as they take on the defending Eastern Conference Champions in the Second Round. We talk about Isles-Lightning between Games 3 and 4 of the series. Also, we eulogize the Rangers and Flyers, who lost their First Round matchups against Pittsburgh and Washington, respectively. We will also look in on the other Second Round matchups. **
The Red Sox renew acquaintances with the Yankees and they find themselves in very different places. Meanwhile, the Mets dug out of an early season hole and finished April on an 8-game winning streak. We talk about the local teams and go around the league. ***
