What's the opposite of "Extreme Sports"?

More than 500 top players from around world the came to Toronto this weekend to compete for a $8,840 prize and the title of world champion in...a Rock, Paper, Scissors tournament.

What with ESPN featuring competitive eating as an actual sports category, it shouldn't surprise me that this exists. Still, am I missing something here? Is there a "thrill of victory, and agony of defeat" component to this? Giggle Girls, discuss.

Reminds me of a spoof video I saw on YouTube. It was a trailer for a "movie" about competitors in a staredown tournament. Utterly ridiculous. ____________________________________ Don't tick me off. Or you'll get it.

If you lose there's an "aww man" and if you win it's like, "yes!" So totally thrilling. So glad someone has acknowledged rock paper scissors as a sport and genuinely hope it gets to the Olympics.

I think these contests are more about being able to read your opponent and psych them out. Sorta like poker.
