Real football or that commie "football" the people on the metric system use?

See, this is why North Korea is doomed if it ever invades the South. All you'll hear is KEKEKEKEKEKEKEKEKE and then the Zerg rush will begin.

Real football.  The one that was invented first.

Really?  You think someone participating in a sport that's only considered a sport in Korea, whose only league is centered in Korea and only occasionally has the odd foreign player join in, might be Asian?

Truly, your mental powers of prediction are beyond fathoming.

Bullshiat.  In ~1983 there was a set of contests for the Atari 2600 with $150,000 worth of jewel-encrusted golden artifacts.

Jim_Callahan: only occasionally has the odd foreign player



It's so Korean dominated that even when they are playing in Europe, non-Korean players like Scarlett and Naniwa are referred to as "foreign",

On that subject, Naniwa's rage quite in this tournament was rather embarrassing. Considering that 3 of the 5 games in the final involved proxy play, if there was a noise problem, herO would have heard the crowd noise and caught sOs.

All the money and salaried players in the world won't stop StarCraft II from being a mediocre game.

Kind of reminds me of the baseball World Series.

It's okay because Polt and Taeja represent America, so America gets wins every once in a while.

Wait, protoss is OP right now? That's my signal to start playing again.

I still can't watch LoL like I can Starcraft, despite its bigger showing. The teamfights become a clusterfark of spell effects.

You should go blog about that.

But really, Korea is one of the main places in the world right now where you probably WILL get laid if you're a big name in e-sports. It's.. Beautiful.

Meh - he's a mix of celeb/athlete, at least within South Korea.  He can get all sorts of chicks if he wants them.

It's funny until you realize that guy lives in Switzerland and has an extremely rich dad who spoils him with anything he wants.

No, it's still funny then. Because I wouldn't trade real, actual human emotional contact for all the money in the world.

... or you could get a degree in engineering, continue to apply yourself professionally, and be making that much money every year starting in about 6-12 years, and get paid vacation, pension and health benefits.
But no, trying your luck on the lottery that is E-sports is totally worth it.
/either way, you're still selling your soul to a corporation, one of them just offers a more reliable paycheck

Also, there was a game with Terry Farrell running around in lingerie.  Treasure Quest had a million dollar prize.

What's ironic is that you take out the few over paid superstars in the MLS and he made more than most of them, after two players left last year the average dropped $15k. Take away the top players in every other real sport and the salary average never drops.

I remember that far side comic from a long time ago. The satirical dream came actually came true.
