This month's Believer Magazine has an article called "The Dance of Hands ". This is probably the longest article ever written on the sport of RPS. The writer Rod O'Conner really jumped head first into the World of RPS with this piece and it is well worth reading. It is really too bad that Rod was not able to make it up to the World Championships as part of his research to see the difference in approach between a Worldrps run event (where all the competitors pay their own way to be there) as opposed to the sweepstakes approach of that other US-based organization.
