I was have this discussion / heated debate on what should be considered a sport and I felt, what greater avenue to discuss further than on the internet. This stemmed from my though that the Olympics were bringing in ridiculous 'sports' that should not be considered sports. The Olympics use to mean something and now it is really just an over commercialized suck fest. So in a nut shell my criteria to be a sport it has to be: 1. A physical activity. 2. A defined winner (not by judge’s decision) This would effectively take out things like Poker, ballroom dancing, Ice dancing, diving, and horse riding. Any thoughts?
