LCS recognized by US Government as a sport

It is a large step for eSports as League of Legends' very own Championship Series is now considered a sport on par with NBA, NFL, and NHL.

Travel will become more convenient than ever for professional gamers as eSports takes a giant leap with LCS.  With the LCS being officially recognized as a sport on par with other famous North American sports, the United States will now be allowing pro players to acquire VISAs as professional athletes.

"Sadly it doesn't count for casters.... myself included," explained Deman to OptimusTom, a League of Legends caster for MLG.  Still, it shows progress being made towards eSports being recognized and truly respected.
