eSports Scholarship

Normally I like to open with a little story, a way to relate life in general with what I am going to be talking about/introducing you to. This time though, I find that I am at a total loss. I am so blown away by this latest news that I honestly could not think of a greater lead-in than just admitting that I could not think of a greater lead-in.
