Time to go Pro

The Championship Gaming Series is here. You've always wanted to go pro at gaming, now you have the chance. From their website:

"The Championship Gaming Series will be the first true professional gaming league, offering a league structure similar to that available for other sports. The league will include team franchises that consist of paid General Managers and contracted, salaried athletes. There will be a draft, season play, special events and a championship, all with beginning-to-end, worldwide, television coverage. The Championship Gaming Series is the genuine gaming sports league game enthusiasts have been waiting for!"

That's right - they said "athletes."
