The Rock Paper Scissors Movement Continues!

By RD Heldenfels Published: January 20, 2006

Hello to everyone who is here because of the link from (And thanks, Tattle, for linking to my late-night ravings about ''Lost,'' found below under ''Ladies and Gentlemen, M.C. Gainey.'') Feel free to browse.

But in this post, I am going to another topic. About a year ago, I wrote a column about an FSN special showcasing a Rock Paper Scissors tournament. Yes, you read that right. And it was eerily fascinating television, applying all the cliches of sportscasting to an event you wouldn't usually think of as a made-for-TV sport. I could not find the column in the Beacon Journal's online archive but there was a blogger who saved it. (Note, the blog contains some strong language.) You can read it by going here and scrolling down to the section titled ''Reaching A New Low.''

Anyway, it appears that isn't the end of RPS on TV. Check out this story (which I found on TV Tattle,  by the way): A&E/RPS.

The press release from the RPS organization behind this event is here.
