Looks like it's getting popular like sports which is funny. They feel there role models are getting threaten and they need more money because there losing fans to small groups like esporting events.

Really now. ESPN actually showed poker competition. All this sports stuff have in common is fans willing to pay for the product. It's nothing new with esports because they the have same thing as NBA or NFL.

Fan service, products and advertising.

What is he doing? It's like he's flailing around while doing a half roll back and forth. It's not like he even had to hop down or anything.

There should be a gaming triathlon where first they have to sprint, then they bike, and finally have to play the game while exhausted. Then people would stop saying it's not athletic enough.

SportAccord uses the following criteria, determining that a sport should:

not rely on any "luck" element specifically designed into the sport.



And therein lies what, I believe they call, the rub.

Fat dudes can f***ing lift sometimes.
When I was in highschool there was this ungodly fat mexican kid in our weight training class and he could leg press every single weight we had for the machine, some 800+ pounds.


One guy I went to highschool with managed to carry a pingpong table up a flight of stairs. For the record, everything on that table except for the wooden slabs were made of metal. It was heeeeea--vy.
