Ka-ching! Scholarships for slaying video game foes

Note to parents: All those hours your kids spend blazing a trail of destruction in video games may not be a complete waste of time, after all.

A small private university in Chicago is offering hefty scholarship for players of one game in particular, League of Legends, which has become one of the most popular games for organized team competitions.

The school says it also wants to give credit to those with a competitive spirit who don't necessarily want to play traditional sports such as basketball or football.
