by those standards giving birth would be a sport... those would be some awkward competitions
Just out of curiosity, what makes you classify something as a sport?
A physical activity in which the outcome clearly defines the winners, like a point system. Not judging.
Well technically most activities that are judged involve the receiving of points in one category or another and overall the team with the most points wins....so there's that
Very true, but parts of that are still somewhat based off of opinion
That is also very true, and coming from a standpoint of a marching band geek I can attest to the fact that some of the scores are based upon the appeal of the show itself. I will agree a lot of activities need not be classified as "sports" per se but do deserve the same respect and support as those that are.
Definitely. I'm not saying that just because something's not technically a sport doesn't mean its not as respectable as one. I just wanted to get my opinion in, as so many people debate about what qualifies and doesn't. In my opinion, the classification of activity really does not even matter.
Its stupid that cheerleaders when people say its not a sport. Whether its a sport or not, who cares? You're doing a physical activity that you love, so who cares?
When i was younger i used to laugh at people who said cheerleading was a sport. Now i understand that it is. Nd now i laugh when people decided to classify poker as a sport.
