Happened to start watching some bowling yesterday, we couldn't decide what makes something a sport as opposed to being  "just" a game. I said bowling is a sport , pool a game.  Still not sure.

If you don't sweat while doing it, it shouldn't be considered a sport...like darts and archery.

A skilled talent maybe, but unless they create separate categories for bow hunting compared to target shooting, who can say?

A sport is where you catch or  kill game with rules. A game is where you play a game with rules. Hunting, fishing = sport. Golf,baseball,checkers = games. Extreme games mtn. climbing,hang gliding,skiing = games of thrill. Golf,basket ball = games of skill. Roulette, craps = games of chance.

If you need physical conditioning I guess its a sport.

Rock climbing not just anyone can do. Anyone can swing a golf club.

Any ting played with a ball can be considered a game.

Almost finally broke my high score a few weeks ago and lost it in the 7th frame. Ended with 158. 161 still my PB. Probably play once a year so not really going for it.

Anyone remember about 30 years ago when Mad Dog Chris Russo went on a tirade one afternoon when Mike was out that "Bowling is not a sport?"

 

Ha!  That was a great stunt.  Had people worked up for weeks.

1 hour ago, Brother Brian said:

Sport - where you can injure someone - Lacrosse, hockey, football

 

Game - where you can't injure someone - baseball, basketball, tennis

Where does chasing fat chicks land on the Brother Brian continuum?
