At the airport gate, killing time
Editor's note: Lee Jones has been traveling a lot recently. As he sat at the airport gates, he started thinking up what else SCOOP could mean.
Seasonal convergence of online players
Selectively choosing options of participation
Some can 'ope only possibilities
Some craftily optimize obfuscating play

Sorrel crushes - only one prevails
Slick computes orderly operational plan
Staggering conflicts over obscene purses
Screaming cheers of observers - pandemonium!
