eSports Are Sports Too

In a world that idolizes traditional sports centered around robustness and brute strength, eSports are often overlooked.

Last week, Seattle hosted the largest eSports tournament in the world. The 7th iteration of The International featured teams of nerds from all over the world competing for a prize of $11 million. To put this into perspective, Tom Brady earned $183,000 for winning this past Super Bowl, only a fraction of what team members that win the International earn.
