How do you define sport (In your own words. Don't give me a dictionary definition). Is auto racing a sport? What about golf, cheerleading, figure skating, etc?
So thumb wrestling is a sport? Bingo is a sport? Beer pong? By your definition, life itself is a sport since everybody is competing against eachother for jobs, money, etc.blackstorm said:One of the most important things that make a sport to me is, they compete in it. If you compete in it, then to me it is a sport, it may not be widely know or paid or even a school sponsored sport, but to me it is a sport.

You've never played beer pong? It's a drinking game obviously, and it's a sport according to blackstorm's sole requirement of "competition".00vega said::lol: actually.... it may sound odd, but under MY definition, "thumb wrestling" actually would qualify as a sport, provided that there were a definate way to define and quantify victories. But Bingo obviously relies on PURE CHANCE, and "beer pong"? WTF???
Also, life itself isn't a sport, but still has the qualities that make sports playable. People don't get jobs just to "compete" with each other. That's the ignorant republican's view of life right there. Even in a world where we all had good top of the line jobs with 6 figure incomes, there would STILL be some jobs that pay better than others, if for nothing else, then just by virtue of their circumstances, design, and importance to society alone. There will always be "poor" jobs relatively speaking. So to view some as worse than others is naive. There can be "less pleasant" ones, but never worse ones.
Also, I think what Buckeye said about objective scoring based on fact is right. A sport has to be unarbitrarily quantifyable. Nomatter how much physical activity is involved, if the winner is judged subjectively or there is no winner, then it's not a sport because there's no "competition", only judgement.
