Laziest of Saturdays

I spent much of today lounging on the couch, doing leisure reading with the TV playing in the background, largely being ignored as ESPN replayed Jamie Gold's 2006 World Series of Poker victory for the seventy billionth time (the 2007 WSOP just started, so I guess there's some extra interest?).

But then, everything changed. An oddly exciting theme music rose to a crescendo. I looked over the top of my copy of Charlie Huston's (very amusing) No Dominion.

The USARPS League Championship. That is, of course, the United States of America Rock Paper Scissors League Championship.

Straight out of ESPN 8: The Ocho, with comparable commentating. Booya.

And a quick trip to Wikipedia confirmed just how rich and deep the world of RPS truly is.
