But in the meantime, I tried a few other games.
Borderlands 2 was fun, but I'm not good at shoot-em-ups... and after an hour or so, I started getting motion sickness.
Then I heard great things about Witcher 3. It looks fantastic- and crashes 1 minute after starting. I read a ton of various fixes... none of them worked for me.
So finally I went back to my Playstation 3 (yes, 3; I'm a system behind) and started Dragon Age: Inquisition. I'm about 32 hours in. Fun game, though not one I want to replay. Some thoughts:
* Aligned with the Mages over the Templars
* Played a mage- haven't specialized yet
* My usual go-to party right now is Blackwall, Iron Bull, and Sera
* Romancing Josephine
Overall, a fun game- and nice to play something different. Going to need to search for another game once I'm finished, though...

I'm a Cavaliers fan, so I don't have a team in the lottery. However, I do have the following thoughts:
* I have friends who root for the 76ers and Kings, so I'd like them to do well
Here's the current order- the lottery will pick the first three, and everyone else moves down:
1. Boston Celtics (via Brooklyn Nets)
Sunday, April 30, 2017
Boston (1) over Washington (4) in 7 games
Cleveland (2) over Toronto (3) in 6 games
Golden State (1) over Utah (5) in 5 games
Houston (3) over San Antonio (2) in 6 games
I like Utah- but Golden State is on a mission.
Houston/San Antonio depends on Harden's health. If he's hurting badly, San Antonio can easily take the series.
Saturday, April 15, 2017
Boston (1) over Chicago (8) in 6 games
Cleveland (2) over Indianapolis (7) in 5 games
Toronto (3) over Milwaukee (6) in 7 games <-- Best series of the first round
Washington (4) over Atlanta (5) in 5 games
Golden State (1) over Portland (8) in 5 games
San Antonio (2) over Memphis (7) in 6 games
Houston (3) over OKC (6) in 6 games
Utah (5) over LA Clippers (4) in 5 games
Utah-Clippers is the only upset I have. And my gut tells me that this game doesn't go 6 games, in either direction. The Clippers are such a Jekyll & Hyde team that they either win the series by game 5 or lose the series by game 5
If Milwaukee was playing Washington or Boston, I'd pick the upset. By Toronto doesn't beat itself. Toronto survives- barely.

They were 3-13 the year before. And then lost four of their top free agents hours after free agency began- including 2 parts of their offensive line (the best part of the football team). We all knew RGIII was a gamble. And they traded down in the draft, passing up good players (not only Carson Wentz, but Joey Bosa, Jack Conklin, Ezekiel Elliott…) And while none of their rookies were busts… none of them overachieved, either.

Playoffs: Seattle over Boston (Wild Card)
ALDS: Cleveland over Seattle
Houston over Toronto
ALCS: Cleveland over Toronto
* Biggest story is that the Angels will consider trading Mike Trout and contending teams will offer a ton of young players and prospects- it may be the biggest trade in baseball in 50 years.
Playoffs: Los Angeles over New York (Wild Card)
ALDS: Chicago over Los Angeles
Washington over San Frnacisco
ALCS: Chicago over Washington
World Series: Cleveland Indians 4, Chicago Cubs 3
