Just received an email that my college joined the National Association of Collegiate eSports (NACE) and will be having competitions in League of Legends and Smite against students from other colleges. 

What a time to be alive.

Just wait.  There is a push to get esports in the 2024 olympics.


Yes, that means stuff like Street Fighter XVIII or DOHA XIII will be awarding olympic gold medals in the near future.

This will be a big deal within 10 years.  Reynad for all of his saltiness recognized it and took charge.

Can't get surfing or baseball in the Olympics, but by Zeus' frothing left testicle we'll make sure Mario Kart will be.

I know right.  The LA organizers are already making a push for it.  They really want esports in the event.

No it won't be in the Olympics.  

I watch esports from time to time, the gamers aren't going to be dicks about this.  


People will compete with others when they are good at something, it's human nature.
Let people do what they want

They already are nerds when it comes to video games.

I know Baker Mayfield is highly competitive when it comes to video games.

This will get just as big as traditional sports are if not eventually bigger.
