The Girls vs. The Woman of RPS

RPS is a sport where both woman and men compete on equal footing. In fact, it is a long held truth of the sport that woman are much better RPS players than men for the simple fact that woman always know exactly what is going on inside the man’s head and men seem to never have a clue about what goes on inside a woman’s head.

Probably the biggest difference between the World Rock Paper Scissors Society and the upstart USARPS league is not USARPS’s downmarket approach the sport but in how the two organizations treat woman.

RPS is a sport where both woman and men compete on equal footing. In fact, it is a long held truth of the sport that woman are much better RPS players than men for the simple fact that woman always know exactly what is going on inside the man’s head and men seem to never have a clue about what goes on inside a woman’s head. And woman being woman, they press this advantage in competitive level RPS

Now the biggest difference between the World Rock Paper Scissors Soicety and the upstart USARPS league is not  USARPS’s downmarket approach the sport, but in part how the two organizations treat their woman. At the World RPS Society, we feel it is important to celebrate woman who have actually played RPS and praise them for their great accomplishments or dedication to the sport rather than than simply for any plastic surgery, bad make-up and/or the overzealious airbrushing skills of underskilled photo retoucher.

USARPS in their quest to satisfy the thrist of their sponsor Budweiser have chosen to go down that old tired and true route of hiring strippers for a cheesefest RPS’esque photoshoot as the leader on their Web site. Considering the complaints that we have heard about the rookie officiating and lack of any real competitive spirit and atmosphere at USARPS events, it is too bad that the USARPS didn’t invest their money in organizing better tournaments.

Here are USARPS "Girls of RPS"

So USARPS you have shown us yours and now we’ll show you ours…

Here are the WRPSS "Woman of RPS"

Ana Ana Martinez The first woman ever to win a major RPS tournament. Her victory at the 2003 Southwest Pro-Am Championships at the world’s most impressive vinyard Roshambo Winery lead to a guest appearence of the Jimmy Kimmel Show where she not only taught the host a firm lesson in RPS but also trounced Slash of Gun’s and Roses fame in a side match. 

 

Christine Christine Wong – The first woman to ever make the podium in a World Championship event. Her solid performance proved that Canadian woman can throw with the best of them.


Force Force of the Fist – In 2002, she was the highest ranking female player at the World Championships and was only narrowly defeated by Pete Lovering who went on to become the eventual World Champion. A fierce competitor she utlized her femine abiilities in actual gameplay by pioneering what has become known as the"midriff" exposure strategy .

 

WRPSS Honourable mentions

 Naomi Naomi Brilliant (Wine Hero and President of Roshambo Winery ) while not a circuit competitor has been a stonger supporter of competitive level RPS through organizing the prize jewel in the Triple Crown of RPS: The Southwest Pro-Am’s. We applaud her dedicaton to help grow the sport.

Team CZ Team Czech Republic – The first all-female country team to ever make the trip across the Atlantic to the World RPS Championships in Toronto. Their commitment and spirit was undeniable even if their game play was not extraordinary. Their matching uniforms set the bar for fashionable gamewear.

Hood Lauren Hood shocked the RPS World in 2004 when she broke rank as trainer to RPS Master Stratagist Mr. C. Urbanus by leaving him in the dust with a first round loss to her top 16 finish.

MissRPS Miss RPS 2003 Natalie In 2003, at the World Championships the WRPSS did hold a pageant of sorts but instead of selecting the winner through a ridicules judging process, the WRPSS Society thought all the contestants were equally charming and left it up to grand arbiter of the game itself to decide who would be crowned Miss RPS. As 2002 winner Pete Lovering is fond of saying, "RPS never lies" and we believe that to be true.
