They lost me at James Franco...

That said, I am excited about the fact that it's on the Brown University Campus and she'll be taking some of her classes at Brown.

a few division 1 schools on there

i wonder what the incentive to go to college and play e-sports versus just going pro right out of high school? unless you are getting paid in college (probably not allowed - since you can't in other sports).

I'm guessing they're making good while the boom holds.

No link on profile, it’s only 7 days. You might have to pm Howard if it’s not automatically lifted.

Damn... How do you guys get drunk here in SoCal?... Good liquor is like 50-100% more expensive here than it was in Texas... Same bottles I used to buy regularly are like double... Is there a trick? Do the little mom/pop places have better deals?

The crap I can afford so far makes me question my existence...

Also... Womens' UFC... Cyborg/Nunes... Exciting and all that... But it was no Rousey/Tate...

The 'sexy' is officially gone.

Kinda makes you wonder where the whole thing is going... Now that the brutality of the sport has officially weeded out the weekend warrior/fitness model types, is it sustainably marketable? Who's watching now?

And it's a matter of time before a woman dies in the ring... Will the sport survive it?

Yeah, as much as we don't want to objectify, it really is a factor.

Happy New Year fam!
