If this whole radio/website deal falls flat for me — I now know my calling: video games, of course. I don’t want to brag too much but I did just win my 100th online game in NBA 2k14 for the PS4 over the weekend.

Now with exciting news coming from ESPN I could be the next Wizard of 2k14. Well, maybe not in 2k but if you are a “Call of Duty” player then this is your shot to be a star. ESPN and the X games have announced today they have partnered with Major League Gaming and they will be holding a “Call of Duty” tournament at X Games in Austin Texas.

According to ESPN:

The “MLG Call of Duty: Ghosts” tournament will feature the top five “Call of Duty” teams based on MLG Pro Points plus the top three teams from the “Call of Duty” championship held in Winter Park, Fla., last month. The eight teams will compete in a double-elimination group format, with four teams advancing to a single-elimination bracket. X Games medals will be awarded to the winning teams.

So this has to be one of the coolest deals in a long time. If you can’t skateboard, but you can dominate on the XBox or the Playstation then you are also welcome to the X Games.

Is this something you would consider getting into — knowing you can win a medal for dominating at a video game? What video game would you want to see added to the X Games?
