You gotta be kidding

How did this not end up on ESPN 8, "The Ocho"? The USA Rock Paper Scissors League — that's right, there's a league — has negotiated the rights to air their third annual tournament on Fox Sports, as a "Best Damn Sports Show Period" special.

The competition is this weekend, with the special to be aired in October. So RPS is not as hot of a fake sport as, say, poker is. At least not yet. Tune in and you'll see engaging competition scenes such as this:
And there are even official, I swear to god, Girls of Rock, Paper, Scissors, shown here. (Mmmmm, Paper...) Their moms must be so proud.

What's next? I'm predicting a movie on the spectacle starring Christopher Walken.
