    if chess is a sport, poker should be an Olympic event.

    Not too sure about that...I mean they have people skiing and then stopping to shoot crap...as well as throwing a rock across ice and seeing who can work a broom the fastest.

    I swear those guys are nuts

    I always need to laugh at the people who don't know the definition of sport.

    Chess is a sport by definition... it's popular enough for 'sports enthusiasts' to enjoy it. Chess is an art, recreation, etc... but when you put it at a level of competition it becomes a very valid sport.

    It's not athletics, but a sport. Poker is a sport, but not one I'm interested in. Bowling is a sport... many things are sport by definition, but chess is better than watching people play Parcheesi or Monopoly.

    Chess is not athletics... many things by definition are sport... Chess is a valid enough game I feel to drop in the category of sports worth following when you see it on your sports channel or in the sports section of the paper.

    Chess is near valid... I would watch it on ESPN or ESPN2 when they show it.

    I enjoy it.

    I just hope it has a better chance than Monopoly or Parcheesi as a 'valid sport'.

    I have never seen Monopoly covered on ESPN or in the sports pages... but I am SURE the fights are more intense!

    You land on my property with a hotel and can't pay??

    Cardboard box time my friend...lol

    I used to love to play that and this other kinda good game called Stratego.

    Well and Risk too...but that bastard took FOREVER!

    So now just chess and texas hold em...and the occasional bout of crazy 8's with the family
