Any Good at Paper Rock Scissors?

Odd question indeed, but if you're really good at 'Paper, Rock, Scissors', you might consider taking on some of the best and before you start laughing at the prospect of a national, organized league, you might consider the fact that winning the league in June will net you a $50,000 first place prize for your talents.

Yep, that's not a typo. 

Building on two years of success, the Bud Light sponsored USA Rock Paper Scissors League (USARPS) Championship is going global in 2008 with a contest taking place on June 22, 2008 at Mandalay Bay Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas vying for the $50 grand first place prize.  If you win this event, you would get to go to Beijing, China during the summer Olympics.

In case you want to know, " The process to identify the 2008 USARPS League champion begins with local qualifying matches across the country. Tournaments are currently underway in 300 markets nationwide and will continue through April 30, when 300-plus finalists worthy of competing for the sports' richest prize will have earned their tickets to Vegas. The five countries joining the U.S. for the international competition in Beijing will conduct their tournaments concurrently."

In case the site doesn't really pique your curiosity, there are some 'nice' videos on the site.  That's all I'm gonna say.
