I won't lie, I'm excited for the International. It's just too much fun to watch the high level Dota that goes on - Evil Geniuses, Alliance, Na'Vi all going head to head. I would love to be there live to watch it all go down in person. Apparently, I'm not the only one who feels that way - tickets sold out in record time.
I'm packing my bags - that's right kids, I'm off to LA to be your live, embedded correspondent at the front lines of the Call of Duty Ghosts Championship.

Sports of all kinds have been around forever. Just as kids will gather round and chant "fight" when there's a scuffle on the playground, as long as people are watching and getting entertained, it can be called sport. But does this apply to eSports?
