  • -Hey, buddy. Nice to see you.

  • Thank you for coming back on the show.

  • -Thank you for having me back. It's like almost what?

  • A year since last time I think?

  • -That's the trophy right behind you?

  • -Yeah, there it is, that's the bad boy.

  • -Congrats, bud. This is the second year in a row

  • that your team won the Overwatch League Grand Finals.

  • Could you first quickly explain what Overwatch is for anyone

  • who doesn't know?

  • -Yeah, yeah.

  • Basically Overwatch, it's 6 versus 6.

  • a team-based action game by Blizzard Entertainment.

  • The goal -- you've got different maps,

  • you got different objectives on these different maps,

  • you play with a wide range of heroes,

  • they all have different abilities,

  • and you work together and you complete the objectives.

  • -Well, this year, the win --

  • obviously this year's a little different.

  • Last time we talked you were in the Wells Fargo Center

  • in front of 12,000 people.

  • This is a photo right after you won. This is last year.

  • Look at that. -Yeah.

  • -And now this is a photo of what winning looks like in 2020.

  • -[ Laughs ]

  • -Still exciting but a different scene, huh?

  • -Right, yeah, I mean, last year it was super exciting because,

  • you know, I'm from Philadelphia,

  • Wells Fargo Center, I've been there many times.

  • I saw Flyers games there a ton as a kid.

  • This year, still feels pretty good, but it's a lot different.

  • There's no crowds, there's no excitement in the big arenas,

  • the sold-out arenas.

  • It was actually kind of funny 'cause I remember

  • a lot of people were curious 'cause, like, the rooms

  • that we played in were so small

  • that, like, I couldn't be with the rest of my team

  • when they were playing, but, you know,

  • it still feels good -- feels good to win again.

  • -That's great, bud.

  • Gamers all have nicknames,

  • and you go by the nickname "Super."

  • -Yes.

  • -Wow. Okay, how did that --

  • Where did that come about? 'Cause you're that good?

  • -Well, actually, it was 'cause when I was a lot younger,

  • my brother -- I watched him play a game.

  • It was called Runescape, way back in the day.

  • I was, like, a little kid.

  • And I wanted to play but I was -- what? -- four years old?

  • I didn't know how to set up an account or anything like that,

  • so I asked him to help me, and the name that he came up with --

  • I don't know how he got this name.

  • It was Super71000.

  • And that's what I stuck with for a while.

  • But then at some point I just decided the numbers look stupid,

  • so I cut off the numbers and then I just was stuck with super

  • and I just -- I just kept it.

  • -Is there a formula to come up --

  • How could I come up with my gamer name?

  • -You find inspiration for literally anything.

  • -Okay, I could do...

  • This is the Little Empire State. I could be "Empire." Empire.

  • -There you go.

  • -Or this is the Statue of Liberty,

  • but it's an old thermometer.

  • Maybe "Old Thermometer."

  • That's my gamer name.

  • -Hey, listen, if you're feeling it, that's all you.

  • -Jimmy "Old Thermometer" Fallon.

  • "And a come-from-behind win from 'Old Thermometer!'"

  • Now that you have two championships under your belt,

  • the big question people want to know.

  • Are you planning on going for the three-peat?

  • -Yeah, I mean, before playoffs, actually, our general manager,

  • he made us watch "The Last Dance" documentary as a team.

  • So, you know, Chicago Bulls,

  • Michael Jordan, that whole ordeal.

  • And, you know, for me, it added, like, motivation to just

  • kind of, like, go out there and do it again

  • because I feel like e-sports and, like, professional gaming

  • is still so young that I have a unique position to be

  • one of the first dynasties in e-sports.

  • I think that's really exciting and really fun to kind of, like,

  • cement yourself in that domain.

  • But, you know, I don't want to think too far in the future

  • because then you overthink things

  • and you get all anxious and nervous.

  • I just take it, you know, day by day.

  • We'll see where the wind goes.

  • -I think you're already in the history books, buddy.

  • Congrats. -Thank you.

  • -Matthew "Super" Delisi, everyone.

  • Congratulations again, pal.

-Hey, buddy. Nice to see you.
