The Magic Water Cooler

Some sort of threshold has been crossed. Over the weekend, The International was held in Seattle. It’s the ultimate challenge in electronic sports – aka, e-sports.
Video game players and teams from around the world competed for prizes. And – hang onto your joystick – ESPN provided online streaming coverage of the whole thing on ESPN3.
I’m sorry, that just sounds a little wacky to me. Video coverage of some guys playing video games?
On the other hand, it does save me a trip to the local arcade.
The prizes at the tournament, by the way, were enormous. Close to $11 million. Yes, $11 million.
And now we know just how much it takes to get these gamers out of their parents’ basements.
