What Exactly IS A Sport?

Post by Raiden » Thu Nov 20, 2008 12:55 am

It's a question I have heard asked.

What do you think makes an activity a sport? Hitting or throwing something? The need of athletic ability? Competition?

Sport is an activity that is governed by a set of rules or customs and often engaged in competitively. Sports commonly refer to activities where the physical capabilities of the competitor are the sole or primary determiner of the outcome (winning or losing), but the term is also used to include activities such as mind sports (a common name for some card games and board games with little to no element of chance) and motor sports where mental acuity or equipment quality are major factors. Sport is commonly defined as an organized, competitive and skillful physical activity requiring commitment and fair play.

An active diversion requiring physical exertion and competition.
The occupation of athletes who compete for pay.

And, for the record, Spock is a good guy in my book. I loves him. Comparison with him is not meant to be bad.
