As Yogi Berra might say: this game is 90% mental, and the other half is physical

FoxNews Out There
MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) — A burly 64-year-old retiree who resembles jolly old St. Nick will be going mano a mano with other contestants in a national title bout — in Rock, Paper, Scissors.
Ray Scott won the New Hampshire title by advancing through eight rounds of tournaments at Manchester bars and pubs. With his white beard and spectacles, fans cheered "Go, Santa, Go" during the New Hampshire finals earlier this month.
Next month Scott heads to Las Vegas to compete in the USA Rock, Paper, Scissors League's national competition. If he makes the right move, he wins the $50,000 grand prize. The competition will be broadcast on ESPN.

I've heard of crossword tournaments, scrabble tournaments, chess tournaments, etc, etc; I never in a million years would have imagined there was a Rock/Paper/Scissors Championship.
