There’s a certain poetry to the recent schedule of sporting events. First, we had the World Cup, which was rather widely celebrated (and criticized.) Now, we have the International, which is somewhat less maligned but just as adored. I’m of the opinion that the Olympics will probably never open a sub-section for esports, but it’s rather exciting to see video game competitions turning into a multi-million dollar affair. My nine-year-old self would laugh at you if you told her that, but she was also very easily entertained and would laugh at just about anything. ANYWAY. Here’s this week’s Bargain Bucket, and the compulsory plushie. I shall leave its champion to explain this week’s conspicuous absence of a bucket. Prepare the pitchforks.
