Chestnut retained the mustard colored belt in a Dog Off: they tied after 10 minutes with 59 dogs each, so they brought out 5 more dogs and the 1st to finish them was the winner.

Obviously the Japanese guys bad jaw cost him.

The announcing was hilarious. In a completely serious voice they stated, "Kobayashi's jaw must not be hurting him to bad today, he must have been taking his glucosamine."

Actually, I've never bothered to try. I've always found watching it to be coma inducing enough.

But I have no doubt that I can ride in an electric cart and swing a stick at a little white ball just like any other fat middle-aged man.

Who gives a shit? Do you really think your punk ass going golf snob on me makes me care? Sorry. LMAO

Golf is an ACTIVITY. Like pool, or darts, or bowling. Like those other activities, skill is involved to be good. Doesn't make them sports.

I'm glad that someone on this earth agrees with me about this. I have no idea where golf ever got the label of "sport" ... it's ridiculous. I suppose being a referee is also a sport. Playing billiards! No. Um ... lawn darts! That's athleticism also! No. Croquet! Yes! No ... Golf is just the same.

Sport requires athletes competing against other athletes. Specifically, athletes trying to achieve an objective (score a goal, TD, run,) while other athletes try to prevent this from happening. So this would make Football, Basketball, Baseball, Hockey, and even Futbol sports. Even tennis qualifies, I suppose.

An activity is something that may require skill and athletic ability, but is differentiated from sport in that no one is trying to prevent you from reaching your objective. Golf, bowling, Jarts. You are trying to bowl a strike or put the ball in the cup, but no one is stopping you from doing it. It's up to you, and you alone to post a number.

I love to golf and have a low handicap, but I still think this way.

Or something like that. :eek:

So track and field and other olympic events are just activities....good to know. I mean when you throw a jav or discus no one is trying to prevent you from throwing. Even in races no one is trying to prevent you from crossing the finish line. Same goes with swimming. They would be about the same as golf in that someone is competing against someone else but no one is on defense.

True, but I still prefer my definition: if you are obese and can compete, then it's not a sport. Sorry: Golf, Darts, Ping Pong, Croquet, Chess, Lawn Darts, Kite Flying, Hot Dog Eating, etc ....

Because you can be out of shape, even "old" to play golf. You can't be out of shape to be an "athlete" in any other "sport" ....... Frazod seems to know what I'm talking about.

I beg to differ. There are many old fat guys that play softball or touch football. Those are sports. Does it help if your athletic and in shape, yes it helps in just about anything you do, but you can still take part in almost any sport as an old fat guy.

Ok, so "sport" is now defined as any game that can be played, to any physical capacity. My fault then, you win. Bowlers are equal to NFL Linebackers. Playstation gamers are equally talented. Oh wait ...

So your saying that baseball is not a sport? I know of plenty of fat guys that play in adult leagues. Is hockey not a sport? There are leagues for older players. How about basketball? Seems I see fat guys or old guys playing all the time at the gym. Are you trying to say that there is a age limit or physical talent limit on sport vs. game? Those that I mentioned earlier are what Macroach claimed were sports, yet people that are not athletic or people that are old participate in them all the time.

We are going to have to agree to disagree. Hockey is a very physical sport, probably more than the NFL on a daily basis, I respect hockey a lot in that regard. If you will go back and read some of the earlier comments by Frazod an myself, then you will understand. Golf, bowling, hot dog eating ... these "games" by nature are not physically vigorous, not ATHLETIC ... But you don't understand this point. Yes, obese and old people can play ANYTHING, I know ... but that doesn't mean that what they do is athletic by nature. I guess what you are saying is that anything is a sport. Competition is a different concept than athleticism. But if you think golf is an athletic sport, that's fine. If you think 85 year old Gurtrude who bowled a 178 in her league is an "athlete" then fine. I think the definition of "athlete" reaches a bit farther than chain-smoking golfers. Take that for what it's worth. If you don't get the point, then fine.

Here you go.
2. An activity involving physical exertion and skill that is governed by a set of rules or customs and often undertaken competitively.
3. An active pastime; recreation.

Definition of sport.

In those definitions it says nothing that the participant must be an athlete to compete, only that it is a game that involved physical exertion. Is professional eating and a spelling bee a sport....HELL NO. Golf on the other hand is, to be a pro you must walk the course and you swing the club, both are physical exertions. Is it a very taxing activity, no, but it is a sport.

If you have your own definition that's fine and all, but come up with something that will argue against the actual definition before you say that something should not be categorized as such.

EDIT: I agree we probably should just agree to disagree :)

Sounds very simlilar to the definition of sport I posted on the old Star board years ago, though I did suggest that sport had to include some sort of physical encounter.

I did qualify some things, such as tennis and gymnastics as athletic competitions.
