The family in MS History

Today on MPB they had an interview with one of the players on the MS State basketball team that snuck out of the State to play against a mostly black team back in 1963. (Look it up, it’s an interesting story.) The guy they interviewed was my Dad’s second cousin. I had no idea a family member was a part of that particular piece of Mississippi college/racial history.

What I really found cool about finding this out was the fact that my Dad was a freshman member of the Ole Miss football team the year James Meredith started there. So apparently my family was present for two of the bigger college/racial historical events in the state. NEAT!

Planetside 2 just hit my gamer radar

I didn’t even know they were working on PS2 till I saw this video. Big thumbs up to the creator, it got me interested in Planetside 2.

I played PS1 back in the day, briefly, but it just didn’t do a good enough job to hold my attention and I found other, quicker games to fulfill my FPS needs. I still like the idea of HUGE battles and hope they’ve got the formula right for PlanetSide 2.

PS1’s REAL problem for me was that I was playing Tribes back then and DAMMIT I wanted jetpacks! Sure ONE faction had a jetpack but it was pathetic compared to what you were used to in Tribes.

 

Here’s the video, let me know what you think:
