What’s this?

This article tells the story of Emmanuel Rodriguez, a 23-year-old pro gaming champion who now works at a Sam’s Club in Dallas. “Video games may be as popular as ever — people in more than 65 percent of American households play, according to the Entertainment Software Association — but the professional sport of gaming has nearly collapsed. Major companies have pulled sponsorships and several tournaments have folded.”
