Personal Fusion/eSports Interview

Jim and Melanie Garrow of Roxborough have been playing Overwatch along with their three children for more than a year. One of their favorite things about it, Garrow says, is that it’s team-based: “No one can be the superstar.”

“We all have our own mains, so we can play together… even the 5-year-old,” his wife adds. “It’s a nice way for us to connect around the dinner table.”

They’ve been following Philly’s Fusion since the beginning.

“We get a lot of strange looks,” Jim Garrow concedes. “But we’d take the whole family to an Eagles game. Why not this?”
