No -- it fails to pass the definition of a sport because it requires no physical exertion.
Originally posted by PhlabibitIt wasn't but a few days ago that I was flipping through my TVs on-screen program guide looking for something to watch (looking for something to watch, there's an interesting phrase) when I came upon a listing for bowling on ESPN2 -- four 30-minute segments of a women's bowling event making a 2-hour block -- so being a 10-pin kegling fan, I happily turned to the show. Instead of seeing bowling, however, I found myself watching a NASCAR race, and I can't remember for sure, but I think it was a repeat of an earlier run of a NASCAR race. I checked the listing again; it definitely said bowling, but NASCAR was being featured.
Hey, Buster! Bowling is also on ESPN2!
Originally posted by PhlabibitESPN also has the National Spelling Bee, but no one would confuse that with sport. It's a competition, but not a sport.
By definition of sports, it is a sport.
It's just not an athletic sport.
Check your dictionary, and don't let anyone ignore all the definitions picking the one they like most.
Also, NY times has great chess puzzles and games in the sports section.
ESPN2 has had chess championships.
