The lights are on
EVO 2011 attracted over two million online viewers. Many of them were watching Noah Solis, an eight-year-old gaming wunderkind, beat the living snot out of people in Marvel Vs. Capcom 3. Noah's talents have already landed him a gaming job. He just signed on as the newest member of the competitive gaming team put together by The Traveling Circus.
"I went with TTC as my sponsor because they treat me good, they are nice people, they give me hope in my future, and they believe in my ability," says Noah. "I like their name. They are nice to me, and my dad is comfortable with their character and my brothers approve."
Not only will Noah get paid to play games and compete in tournaments across the globe, this deal includes a clothing line. From what we understand, some of the clothing designs will be from Noah himself. This clothing line will be showing up soon at the Traveling Circus website.
I don't know about you guys, but I can't wait to see this kid compete.

There is probably another 8 or 7 or 5 year old out there that can beat this one
that was a one in a million shot, kid.
That's pretty cool, best of luck to Noah Solis. Just don't get a big head little guy.
That's... interesting, I guess.
I'd root for him.
Lucky kid. I wish I was him.
Man, if only I had that opportunity as a kid. I mean, I used to be pretty good at videogames for a kid.
My life. It is meaningless.
