Well here we are. Rescue the franchise tonight or everyone is dead, right? But is there actually a way to win this game of Kobayashi Maru? Well, yes there is. Win. You know that thing they can actually still do. Of course you might have to sacrifice one player in the process. Hmmm, Max, it's been nice knowing you, but you really need to die to save the rest of the team.

The only problem is we have to wait all day for it to happen. This is going to be a long one. 12 hours to go as a write this and little more to talk about other than what has already been said enough.

So what are you doing while you wait for the game?
