This segment summarized sinatraa’s debut at the Overwatch League, from his contract signing up until his debut. It also goes over sinatraa’s gaming background, “It’s been my dream since I was 12 basically,” says sinatraa. His mother, who has been supportive of his career thus far, says that she tolerated his obsession over video games as long as he got Bs in school. She even stated that she threw away his Xbox at one point over a school dispute.
NBC also went behind the scenes with sinatraa’s Overwatch League debut against Florida Mayhem, in which his team lost. Despite the loss, sinatraa’s mother remained by his side and told him how proud she is of his accomplishments thus far.
