Competitive Video Gaming Gaining Popularity on College Campuses - -RG- - 10-12-2018

I guess it was only a matter of time. Nerds need a sport too. Chuckle


The University of North Texas is hoping to become a pioneer in eSports. On Aug. 30, it will open a new practice space called The Nest inside the Media Library.

The Nest will provide a place for teams playing various competitive video games, from Overwatch to League of Legends to Hearthstone, to bone up. Any university student, staff member or faculty member with a simple passion for gaming is also welcome to take one of The Nest's ergonomic green seats.

Sounds like a sticky situation. Do they bring their own joysticks, or is it community sticks only?

Well, you never know what's going around. I bet the pinball wizard is feeling kind of cheated. Yet, still plays a mean pinball!

He had lost a lb. so he's bottle feeding now and being such a little guy he eats every 3 hours so it was a long night, loved having him though, he's adorable! I'd listen to you complain, drinking a beer and nothing better to do tonight, lol.

You don't suppose it was a toss-up, say an archery program or competitive video gaming, and they went with the gaming to appease some political agenda or something?
