Professional Video Gamers

While #1 Son and #2 Son were here, they told me about the DOTA 2 International game championship currently under way.  Teams of gamers face off, for a share of a $20 Million prize pool.  Last year's winning team scored a cool $6M, out of an $18M pool.

They sell out stadiums.  This was last year, with a capacity crowd at Seattle's Key Arena.

I really don't know what to say.  The World is a stranger place than we can imagine.

We have some of those events on the Iowa.

And we have Naval Board Gamers there on a regular basis.

I couldn't believe the detail they put into some of their little model ships the first time I spent some time with them.
