I'm fine with saying eSports isn't sport. I also think neither golf nor car racing are sports. Does it help to be fit to play golf or race a car? Yes. Is it necessary to win? No. If you can win without being physically fit, I think it's reasonable to say the activity is not a sport.

I'm sure Apple streaming to only Apple devices is okay by the Macheads and okay by the rest of us.

also, around 20 people picked the packers in the pickem league XD. although i have to confess i almost did myself just on the basis of likelihood of upset.
If they had been playing in GB, I might have considered it, but probably not for long..

I'm not even paragon 100....
Same, I'm at 65 and I think I picked up 40-45 of those levels during the xp boost before the expansion launched.
Really? I'm 250+ and didn't really think I had played THAT much. I only started 3 weeks prior to the expansion and haven't been in the game a month now... The first 100 really aren't much of a big deal.

Tony Kornheiser is one of two regular hosts of an ESPN show called "Pardon The Interruption". Basically it's just Tony and another reporter/newscaster Micheal Wilbon talking about the US sports news of the day. They spend about 1.5 minutes on various subjects during a 30 minute show that airs 5 days a week most of the time. Tony either is or plays a typical old, east-coast bias, star stuck, NFL shield protecting, sports weenie. Some of the time he clearly thinks that way, some of the time it's pretty clear he's just playing his role (and enjoying it for the most part).

When they talk about soccer, which isn't often -- usually around the World Cup, he has repeatedly pulled out this idea that if country 'abc' has a population of x, and country 'def' has a population of 2x -- 'def' has the clear advantage and should win. I doubt he honestly believes this, but he pretends on the show that he does.

And yet, the USMNT did comfortably better than England (and of course far better than the other British teams, none of whom qualified) and there's no particular reason why this should surprise anyone. Wow, a country with 6 times our population and who are famous for their interest in sport can find 23 people rather good at playing one of the most popular ones?! Well done them!
Really, the population card? Who are you, Tony Kornheiser? If/when soccer makes it into the top 4 of US sports, you can expect the US to start doing a lot better. I doubt it will happen in our lifetimes.

Until then, soccer (for the most part) will continue to get leftover athletes from the other sports.

Maybe not 15 years like that guy up in Fresno a few months ago, but a serious deterrent. And advertise the law.
I don't know anything about the Fresno incident you are referring to but I certainly wouldn't be upset by a year or two in jail for any idiot doing this. Punishing stupidity is always a good idea.

I have no issue with anyone who wants to say they don't like Minecraft, to each their own. However, anyone who says it's a bad game or complains about the graphics or whatever is either ignorant of the facts or simply isn't engaging their brain.

I don't care much for his movies, but I loved his tweet about this situation:

"People don't usually wanna kill me for one of my movies until after they've paid 12 bucks for it. Hiyooooo!!!"

"Crunch time" isn't a necessity, it is a sign of either poor project planning or a lack of staff (which could also be contributed to poor project management). I'd like to see a comparison of the "game industry" to corporate IT staff. In my experience, the only IT environment I saw anything but a token female contingent was in the USAF.
