    They are really missing out on the passion people have for "52 Pick Up".

    You know, I remember reading some time back that they televised video game matches over in South Korea, specifically the old computer game Starcraft.

    Here's an article: http://arstechnica.com/news.ars/post/20050912-5302.html

    The answer lies in South Korea, and a professional gaming culture so far advanced from North American pro gaming that it seems to come from a century in the future. Lingering resentment over treatment in World War II caused South Korea to apply stifling tariffs on Japanese video game consoles, which when combined with a near-universal broadband internet infrastructure, created an environment where multi player PC games could flourish. Starcraft in particular, with its three well-balanced sides and emphasis on strong strategy and competition, appealed to the Korean public. Today, the best professional Korean Starcraft players have their own team uniforms, practice every day for games that are played on no less than four full-time Starcraft TV channels, and earn yearly salaries rumored to be in the high six figures.
    How far away are we from something like this on ESPN, especially as the technology for video games get much better for producing a more "watchable" experience for a 3rd party w/ better graphics and sound?

    How about televised tournaments of people playing "Clue," "Monopoly" and "Risk?"

    Interesting idea. I'd probably watch Twister if it was televised.
    This is the Cal Ripkin Jr. of typos.

    If you ask me to join your fantasy baseball league and I select Legolas in the first round, don't be angry at me. It's not my fault I've read up on the players and you haven't.

    Shame on you all!

    Dominoes is BIG in many parts of Latin America and taken just as seriously as the US takes POKER, for example.
    There are books on how to play, how to read your opponent and your partner.
    It is NOT a kids game and a good game involves the ingestion of large quantities of alcoholic spirits.

    Now, from there to making it spectator-worthy, well....don't think so.

    Uno Attack. There's alot more action when it starts shooting cards out at you. Them things could put out an eye and requires a certain level of athleticism.
